With the latest modifications made by the development team of Xfce, Users of this desktop have been overwhelmed by the many options they have to modify a desktop theme or create one of their own. Also, in many elements preview changes are not possible performed, which I personally value more and more. Faced with this problem has been created Xfce Theme Manager, An application that allows us to modify, create and export a theme in our Xfce in an easy and simplified way.
Installing Xfce Theme Manager
Xfce Theme Manager is developed for distributions based on Debian and / or Ubuntu how Xubuntu, Although its popularity has led to it being exported to other distributions such as Arch Linux.
In order to have this program installed, we need to install it using a terminal as it is not available in the official repositories of Xubuntu. We open the terminal and write
its add-apt-repository ppa: rebuntu16 / other-stuff
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xfce-theme-manager
With this we will have installed Xfce Theme Manager, Now we just have to open Xfce Theme Manager and modify our theme in Xubuntu.
There is another way of installation. This method would consist of downloading the binaries to us and installing them using the command sh although we are not going to dwell on this method as both the developers and the source where I found this program do not recommend this installation method, but the first one described.
currently i use Unity so I can tell you first impressions of Xfce Theme Manager, But it is worth a try because among its benefits is the option to save all changes to a file so that they can be reloaded on this computer or another. A very interesting utility that can facilitate the task of using Xubuntu in a corporate setting without becoming a developer. What do you think of this software? Do you use a manager for your desktop themes or do you use predefined themes or included in Xubuntu / Ubuntu?
Tell us your experience, thank you to our friends From Linux they explained I met this software with many opportunities. Now it’s your turn.
