Customize XFCE with Xfce Theme Manager [+ Installation]

Xfce Theme Manager is an excellent application that will allow us to configure our XFCE in a simple way due to the fact that it brings together all the customization options for this Desktop Environment in one place.

After customizing it to our liking, we can even save our preferences, among other options.

Installation in Xubuntu can be done by following the steps below:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa: rebuntu16 / other-stuff sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install xfce-theme-manager

However, if we are using any other distribution, what I recommend is downloading the binaries:

Download binaries

In the file are the necessary files for 32 and 64 bits, we only have to unzip it, access the folder corresponding to our architecture and in a terminal put:

chmod + x ./

    Xfce is getting better and better, and when it is ported to GTK3 I won't even tell you, you will come back to it with your tail between your legs like a scared dog. @elav

      I doubt it .. sorry to say but with KDE I have all my needs covered. I only return to Xfce if my conditions force me to.

        I went from KDE to XFCE because KDE does not satisfy my needs, which XFCE with GTK applications (which I did not find in qt) makes it perfect 😀

      I don't know if XFCE is going to go entirely to GTK3 in the end, it would cause a lot of problems with the applications due to its update rate. Maybe XFCE will jump straight to GTK4 when Gnome 4 comes out next year.

      Hahaha, but they are not my themes .. I took them from the project page. I think the goal is: See how much ugly Xfce can be customized.

        The truth is that yes, those topics are to cry, but the application seems to be good.

          I'd rather download the ambiance or radiance theme for XFCE than install those themes from the Plus package! Windows 98.

      LOL! It is true. But hey, the developer of his themes must be happy to have contributed something to the community. Someone must like it.

    Thanks for the note !!!!!!

    Excellent, my XFCE is getting better and better.

    I'm honestly going to continue with Appearance and Window Manager, although it is a nice application.

    It suits me perfectly, and I just joined XFCE. Touching on the subject, will someone know a solution so that the GTK2 themes work with the programs made in GTK3 like Transmission Bittorrent?

    wow. I would download it if it weren't for one thing: I'm not interested in XFCE

    Another one who joined xfce a long time ago, I'll write it down in case I mess with the theme 🙂
