There are a lot of good themes for gtk2+ out there, but only a few xfwm4 themes and I don't really like the separation of window borders and window content. So is it possible to disable xfwm4 and only use gtk2+ as window manager?
Or is it at least possible to fully convert gtk2+ themes to work with xfwm4? Cause in my appearance settings I have a lot of good themes installed (in: /usr/share/themes) but my window borders use the theme from "window manager".
I tried to deactivate xfwm4 in the terminal (killall xfwm4) but it automatically restarted xfwm4 again :-(
It isn't really possible, but u can use metacity (Gnome WM). It should be better (but it isn't part of Xfce4)
I think I could also install Compiz/Emerald?
But the best option for performance is probably to stay with fwm4 so I'm not going to install compiz. But thanks anyway.

I was having a miserable time catching the (1px) border of windows to drag resize them.
Changing the "theme" didn't seem to help...
...took quite a while for me to stumble onto the "oh, window borders are setup separately, over HERE" dialog.
you can always create new xfwm4 themes with wider borders ... i have created several themes ... even ported over several metacity themes for PCLinuxOS and my Phoenix and Phinx releases ... i think it is great that they are separated ... means less confusion when creating new themes ...
