Read the Manual
http://docs.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-settings/appearance





But as you can see. My themes are not taking in Settings>Appearance GUI. My ~/.icons change worked just fine however.

Also. Looking in

Code: [Select]
harry@harry-Latitude-XT2:~$ cd /usr/share/themes
harry@harry-Latitude-XT2:/usr/share/themes$ ls
AgingGorilla  Crux     Emacs   MediterraneanLight  Moheli   Smoke
Atlanta       Daloa    Esco    MediterraneanWhite  Raleigh  ZOMG-PONIES!
Bright        Default  Kokodi  Metabox             Simple
harry@harry-Latitude-XT2:/usr/share/themes$

These others do not show up in my 2nd screenshot either for some reason.

Hi rokytnji,
That theme on your screenshot "Xaphire-Lava" contains only xfwm4 theme. That is only a window manager theme.
If there was a gtk-2.0 folder with a gtk+ 2 theme in .themes/Xaphire-Lava besides xfwm4, it would show up.

Also. Looking in

Code: [Select]
harry@harry-Latitude-XT2:~$ cd /usr/share/themes
harry@harry-Latitude-XT2:/usr/share/themes$ ls
AgingGorilla  Crux     Emacs   MediterraneanLight  Moheli   Smoke
Atlanta       Daloa    Esco    MediterraneanWhite  Raleigh  ZOMG-PONIES!
Bright        Default  Kokodi  Metabox             Simple
harry@harry-Latitude-XT2:/usr/share/themes$

These others do not show up in my 2nd screenshot either for some reason.
Whisker menu > setting > window manager
They are there.

Thanks for setting me straight misko.

Way off topic (sort of) but how did you get the time/date on your desktop?  When I was a Windows user, I had the time/date gadgets.  It was nice to be able to see what time it was at a glance.

It is my conky I installed and configured.

Code: [Select]
$ apt-cache policy conky-std
conky-std:
  Installed: 1.9.0-4
  Candidate: 1.9.0-4
  Version table:
 *** 1.9.0-4 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty/universe i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Damn.  Like everything else it seems, this might be a bit beyond my capabilities (unless I can just c/p your code).

Hello!

Perhaps a new area can be created for Conky, similar to the screenshots thread, to include specific details about how they're created in the conky.rc file...
