Make your own theme

Hey, I'm not sure if this should be here, or in 'Themes and Screenshots'.

Is there any good tutorial on making Xfce themes? I'm not a total linux noob, and I've been wondering if there's any fairly easy way to make your own themes. Can anyone point me to a good guide?

Re: Make your own theme

Thanks a lot!

But there's still one thing I'm curious about...
In this image:

the window manager uses the GTK colors, which in this picture, are blues.

It has a nice gradient, and I tried to figure out how the did it. This is what I got when I looked at the top-left-active:

/* XPM */
static char * top_left_active_xpm[] = {
"7 25 6 1",
"     c None",
".    c #A0A0FF s active_shadow_1",
"+    c #D0D0FF s active_hilight_1",
"@    c #B0B0FF s active_mid_1",
"#    c #C0C0FF s active_color_1",
"$    c #000000",
"  .....",
" .+++++",
".+#####",
".+#####",

".+#####",
".+#####",
".+#####",
".+#####",
".+#####",
".+#####",
".+#####",
".+#####",
".+#####",
".+#####"};

But as you can see, it's mostly just a solid color, #, not a gradient. How do I add gradients to themes that uses GTK colors??

OH duh! I am so stupid.   ;D
Never mind, I figured it out for myself. I forgot about the PNG overlays.
