Description:

PRO-Dark-XFCE-Edition

Made by paulxfce

A clear and easy-on-the-eyes theme that is meant for those who use the XFCE/Gnome-desktop professionally on a daily basis. The focus in this theme is compatibility: GTK-2 applications and GTK-3 applications look virtually the same. Libre-office, Scribus, Evolution, Geary, Planner, GnuCash, LaTeXila, Geany, the Gimp, Inkscape,...

Chrome, firefox, Web and Opera have no issues with this theme.

About the looks, you will notice some Elementary-theme, Arc-theme and Gnome-OSX, in a darker version.
This is a XFCE-interpretation of my gnome-theme PRO-Dark-GTK.


IMPORTANT:

There are 3 versions available:
PRO-Dark-XFCE-Edition-I is the older XFCE-D-PRO which works fine with thunar below version 1.8

PRO-Dark-XFCE-Edition-II is the newer up-to-date version that requires Thunar 1.8 or above

PRO-Dark-XFCE-Edition 4.14 is an update to the newer XFCE-DE and GTK 3.22 up until GTK 3.34


How to install:

Download the theme,

Just copy the extracted file to a '.themes'-folder you make in your home directory.
Then use Appearance/ Window-manager to select the Style.
LOG OUT AND BACK IN for changes to take full effect !

The standard XFWM-windowmanager is used as the compositor, With the following specific settings in the Window Manager Tweaks:
- display compositing enabled.
- Synchronize drawing to the vertical blank enabled.
- Show shadows under dock windows enabled.
Opacity of popup windows is set more to the left (more transparency): this gives the translucency under the drop down-menu's. You can move the layer more to the left for more transparency.


Comments

Please comment if you see things broken, or want differently. I will post fixes as soon as possible.

Updates:

Version 4.14 updates to XFCE 4.14 and newer gnome-versions.
Version II is a fully up-to-date version for the new thunar (>=1.8)
Version 1.1 includes ALL the window-control-buttons of XFCE-titlebar
Version 1.2 is build on top of ubuntu 17.10, with a new whiskermenu and solution for the awkward behaviour of the desktop-icons.
Version 1.3 completed the making of the panel and Whisker-menu. This version is made to work on Xubuntu 17.10.
Version 1.4 Fix for the desktop-icons, re-theming of Thunar in Toolbar-style, re-adjusting GTK3-theme to match GTK2, overall lighter blue-selected-color and grey-ed menu-items all look the same; Further theming of Whisker-menu: Adjusted padding and margins to make it less clunky and added text-shadows to improve the font-rendering.
Version 1.5 correcting parsing-errors.
Version 1.6 bugfixes and license-requirements

Xfce's themes always felt so "retro" and kept me from switching from Gnome for a long time, but seeing your work I have no reason not to use Xfce anymore. So thanks :)

Not sure when this happen but the left panel (location) has lost its colour in Manjaro Xfce. It is just white instead of grey now. Was there any change ?

I have check it out in VB with an older version. The change happen with the new Thunar manager (1.8 now, was 1.6 before). The theme doesn't look the same anymore with that. Still since Manjaro xfce is the most popular distro now, it may be a good idea to fix it.

Thunar, and a bunch of other now switched totally to GTK3, so my theme is outdated. This requires some size-able adjustments to the theme, so give me some time...

Exactly, they are migrating in bunch to GTK3 (manjaro). Not your fault. I hope you can follow soon because your themes are the best for XFCE, hands down. Thanks.

I was fed up with how badly Libre Office looked with a tabbed user interface while using Greybird GTK3 theme (that is otherwise a really great, greyish theme). Now I start Libre Office with PaulXfce's PRO-dark theme and it finally looks good : ) Thanks!
