My desk today

I have dedicated myself to changing the appearance of my Xfce replacing the simulation I had of Oxygen by Zukitwo and this has been the result.

My configuration is as follows:

Gtk theme: Zukitwo.
Xfwm theme: eGTK.
Icon theme: Faenza KDE.
Panel: xfce4-panel.
Dock: Wbar.

    Very nice, but I prefer the panel on the top, the dock seems perfect in the place where you put it, on wide screens it takes advantage of the horizontal space that, almost always, is left over.

    Here's a shot of my desk from a few weeks ago:

      Very cool the screenshot. In fact I use the panel at the top a lot and I remove the labels from the windows so that it only shows the icons 😀

        Hey, what I have never been able to do (it will be because I have not searched enough) is to remove the list of buttons in the upper panel, so that it does not show me the open applications. I would love to leave the top panel clean, just the menu and indicators in the upper right corner. But every time I remove the list of buttons, the indicators join the xfce menu and it looks pretty ugly.

        Is this possible to do?

          Sure it can be done. You have to right click on the border (well on the border) of the first open window and you should get the option to remove. Or you can also go to Menu »Settings» Panel »Items and delete it there. Now, so that the indicator icons stay on the right side, you add a Separator Element next to the Menu, and in its options, you have to mark a checkbox that says: Expand or something like that.

          Did you understand 😀

    @elav your desktop looks better every day .. very cool ... who would say that XFCE is ?. Hey a doubt, the Xfce you use is the one from Linux Mint?

    1.    elav <° Linux said

      Nope, Debian hard and fast .. 😀

    @elav on Debian 6.0? look how well I thought it was LMDE, because nothing stops when I decide to leave Windows heheej.

      You are the typical user who wants to use X product, but is still stuck and is unable to stop using Y product, lack of will ... I don't know HAHA.

      You thought about leaving Windows a while ago and look at yourself still, putting yourself the limitations .. Ahh right: Games and iTunes hahaha

    Very, very good, it doesn't really look like XFCE, I never thought it could be configured that way.

    @elav Not so much games as iTunes, and the other applications that work with iTunes, but I already found a solution !!, virtualize Windows, which I don't know.

      Surely the Win, on VirtualBox (well configured), will be more than enough, especially if it is XP; and in a short time you will see that even virtualized you will not need much.

      Make a list of the applications and the uses you give them; Mention them around here and I'd almost bet you're going to run out of excuses.
