    Xubuntu 13.04 Window Decoration Theme missing. How might I get it?

    I would like to get a window theme that is listed on the link below, but is not installed in Xubuntu 13.04. I have It installed in
    Debian Wheezy Xfce 4.x and see it listed as being in Arch linux Xfce 4.x.

    The theme is this one:

    /usr/share/themes/Xfce-b5/gtk-3.0/gtk.css

    Listed for Xubuntu 13.04 here:

    http://packages.ubuntu.com/raring/am...-xfce/filelist

    I can't find it on these links, but then again I don't know what I am doing:

    http://wiki.xfce.org/howto/install_new_themes

    Does anyone know what I can do?

    Thanks.

    Its part of the xfwm4-themes package which isn't installed by default. Looks like its a window-manager theme only.

    Thanks, for looking Toz.

    I wonder why it is listed in the list, but not installed:

    http://packages.ubuntu.com/raring/am...-xfce/filelist

    Does anyone have any idea where I could get it?

    Thanks.

    If you're referring to the b5 window manager theme, then install the xfwm4-themes package. From the command line:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xfwm4-themes

    If you are referring to Appearance theme (/usr/share/themes/Xfce-b5/gtk-3.0/gtk.css), then it can be installed via:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gtk3-engines-xfce
    There is also a gtk2 version of the appearance theme in the gtk2 engine:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-xfce

    That did it. Yay! We we again!

    If you have any patience left with me Toz, could you provide me with a link, to read on installing, all the various Xfce themes with apt-get install:

    Window decorations

    GTK+ interfaces

    Cursors

    Notifications

    Icons

    It was really bugging me that Debian Wheezy Xfce could be configured to how I wanted it, but not Xubuntu 13.04.

    Thanks again.

    The Xfce wiki might be a good place to start - especially the HowTo and Tips & Tricks sections.

    There is also the Xfce documentation.

    Basic information about themes, cursors, icons are talked about here.

    There is also this forum, so don't be afraid to ask away. There is alot of Xfce knowledge here.
