Theme suggestions

I recently built my new desktop and like my netbook it is running Fedora xfce however this installation is 64 bit. I was curious as to whether anyone has any themes they like and would like to share, personally I'm searching for something simple without the distro's brand all over it. I am looking through some sites like xfce-look.org and gnome-look.org but nothing is really catching my eye...

Desktop- Fedora XFCE x86_64
Netbook- Modified Fedora 14 security spin -fluxbox/Fedora XFCE

Re: Theme suggestions

The xfce variety of ubuntu defaults to good theming - have a look at albatross and elementary.

The theme for Xubuntu 10.10 (Bluebird) is quite pleasant smile

Re: Theme suggestions

Thanks for the suggestions. Do you happen to have the files for these? I've looked and can only find modified versions of the theme (involving emerald etc).

Albatross, Bluebird, and Greybird (Greybird is still not finished), are all creations for Xfce by the Shimmer Project: http://www.shimmerproject.org

There's a tarball for each theme. Albatross and Bluebird are my favorite Xfce themes.

If you're using Arch Linux, these themes are available on the AUR. (xfce-theme-albatross, xfce-theme-bluebird, xfce-theme-greybird)

All of these themes require the Murrine GTK engine to be installed.

Don't forget to apply both the GTK portion (Settings > Appearance > Theme) and the Xfwm4 portion (Settings > Window Manager > Theme), and the wallpaper, if you desire.
