Cannot get xfce4-terminal to use same window decoration as rest

Hi,

I am trying to get my XFCE4 terminal to use the same window decoration as all other applications.

However, it keeps using the same old decoration, no matter what I pick in settings.

The following screenshot shows the terminal right next to Thunar, which beautifully applies the Numix theme:

What am I doing wrong here?

Update: The same is happening with Thunderbird, Firefox.

Re: Cannot get xfce4-terminal to use same window decoration as rest

Hello and welcome.

Which distro and what version of Xfce are you running?

What are your base appearance settings:

xfconf-query -c xsettings -lv

Do you have anything in your user gtk config files:

cat ~/.gtkrc-2.0
cat ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css

Are you running both applications as the same user? Let's see:

ps -ef | grep xfce4-terminal
ps -ef | grep thunar

Update: The same is happening with Thunderbird, Firefox.

Are they showing xfce4-terminal's theme or thunar's theme?

fchristl 17093 13692  0 12:37 pts/0    00:00:00 grep --color=auto Thunar

Thunderbird and Firefox are showing xfce4-terminal's theme, not Thunar's.

Re: Cannot get xfce4-terminal to use same window decoration as rest

Can you run:

ps -ef | grep -i thunar

...with a thunar window open?

/Net/ThemeName                  Greybird

Your system is currently set up to use the Greybird theme. Can you go to Settings Manager > Appearance > Style and change it to Numix?

I cannot believe I have not tried that, but that actually solved the issue. Thank you so much!

Just for my understanding: Why does the GTK theme influence the XFWM display?

xfwm4 can inherit GTK colours. For more info, see the GTK Color Pickup section.
