Re: My theme look ugly how to fix it?

What icon theme are you using?
Which distro?
Which version of GTK3 is installed? If you have GTK 3.20 installed, make sure you are using a GTK 3.20-compatible theme.

If the icons are in your notification area, deselect the "Show Frame" option in the Notification Area properties dialog.

Re: My theme look ugly how to fix it?

Have you tried another theme - a GTK 3.20-compliant theme?

Are the icons in the Notification Area? If so, did you remove the frame?

Re: My theme look ugly how to fix it?

Which Appearance theme are you using?

xfconf-query -c xsettings -p /Net/ThemeName

Is the Notification Area frame turned off?

xfconf-query -c xfce4-panel -lv | grep show-frame

What is your Notification Area Icon max-size?

xfconf-query -c xfce4-panel -lv | grep size-max

Which mail notification plugin/app are you using? Is it xfce4-mailwatch-plugin?

Occasionally, I am on #xfce.

Re: My theme look ugly how to fix it?

The Candra theme is adding alot of padding to the button widgets of the panel.

Have a look at the theme's gtk-2.0/panel.rc file and at the top, you will see:

style "theme-panel"
{
	xthickness = 4 # The spacing (padding) inside and between applets. Add a lower value for a more compact look.
	ythickness = 0

Change the 4 to a lower number and this will increase the size of those panel icons. Change the Appearance theme to something else and back to your Candra theme and the change should take effect.

Re: My theme look ugly how to fix it?

Change the value to 0 first then try logging out and back in again.

Do you have an ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file? If so, what are its contents?

Re: My theme look ugly how to fix it?

What are the contents of the /home/blackhat/.gtkrc-2.0.mine file?

Do you use LXAppearance to manage your theme settings?

Re: My theme look ugly how to fix it?

So you don't have the .gtkrc-2.0.mime?

ls -al ~ | grep gtkrc

...its okay if you don't - its not mandatory.

Xfce has its own tools to manage theme settings, but in the end, they both do the same things.

Have you logged out and back in again? Does the problem still exist?

You will lose all of your settings. Re-create the file and log out and back in again to put things back.

Re: My theme look ugly how to fix it?

I just installed the Candra theme and that xthickness/ythickness setting doesn't change anything. Try this:

Create the .gtkrc-2.0.mime and put the following content into it:

# panel padding
style "my-launchers"
{
    xthickness = 0
    ythickness = 0
}
widget "*directorymenu*" style "my-launchers"
widget "*mailwatch*" style "my-launchers"
widget "*systray*" style "my-launchers"
widget "*launcher*" style "my-launchers"

...and log out and back in again.

Re: My theme look ugly how to fix it?

Okay found it (you can delete the .gtkrc-2.0.mine file). The problem configuration is in the main.rc file. Look for:

GtkButton::inner-border           = {4, 4, 4, 4}

...and change the 4s to something smaller, like:

GtkButton::inner-border           = {1, 1, 1, 1}
