Here is my first Xfce theme. A slightly transparent one. You need to have xcomposite enabled to use it correctly.
Feel free to criticize
Hope you will enjoy it
njaaaa .. one big disadvantage is that it doesnt have neither minimize nor close nor the rest of the window buttons ... .. but else great
Yes i think adding some ...
Here's a little try
Added buttons for active window, still none for inactive ones. (Greatly inspired from more dots
Very good window border theme! I love it. Actually, I prefer the version with no buttons. Can you distribute it again?
And I would be very pleased if you could produce an even more simpler version: no button, no title, no icon, nothing. Just borders! I prefer keyboard shortcuts for window moving, resizing and closing.
I saw a theme like that for Emerald. It resembled the Vista theme with transparency and blurring on the edges.
Also, you say that I need to enable xcomposite for the borders to be transparent. I have a bare-bone install of Xfce on top of Ubuntu Server with the X.Org package. Do I need to install anything else? Like libxcomposite1? And should I configure something somewhere?
And, from the screenshot you provided, I can see a nice status application running over you desktop. Can you tell me how you did this?
I'm not sure how ubuntu handle the composite stuff but on a classic config you just need to have
Section "Extensions" Option "Composite" "Enable" EndSection
to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Then activate it in xfce window manager tweaks.
I surely can make you a more simple version, does the title border size ok? or you would like it to be on the same size of other borders?
