XFCE/XFWM4 Themes by bisoft 16 comments

Well I've tried everything I can think of. Transparency will not show despite all the files having alpha channels. Do you know if there's any other dependencies that I might need like certain theme engines to make the transparency appear?

Also I noticed another bug. When I apply the theme, my network applet crashes and I can't get it to run. My network is still working but the app dies so I can't change settings. When I launch the app this is what I get:
[philippe@localhost ~]$ nm-applet

(nm-applet:3462): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk-widgets.css:266:17: Not using units is deprecated. Assuming 'px'.

(nm-applet:3462): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk-widgets.css:314:17: Not using units is deprecated. Assuming 'px'.
** Message: applet now removed from the notification area
** Message: applet now embedded in the notification area

(nm-applet:3462): Gtk-WARNING **: Style property "border-top-left-radius" is not gettable

(nm-applet:3462): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: gtype.c:4204: type id `0' is invalid

(nm-applet:3462): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: can't peek value table for type `<invalid>' which is not currently referenced
Segmentation fault

The app runs fine when using other themes. If I apply the clearlook theme I get:
[philippe@localhost ~]$ nm-applet
** Message: applet now removed from the notification area
** Message: applet now embedded in the notification area

XFCE/XFWM4 Themes by bisoft 16 comments

If newer versions of gtk are causing some problems, that may explain the issues. I'm running Mageia 3 with XFCE 4.10. The installed version of gtk is 3.6.4. Here's a screenshot of my desktop after appying the default xfwm4 theme included with your theme. As you can see, the panels don't have alpha transparency and are of the wrong color (should be black I think). Also, the window decorations are that of the MacOS variant of the theme and not the modified kokodi as expected. Hopefully this helps track down the problems.

I also wanted to show with this screenshot that I did enable compositing within XFCE by showing the proper application of alpha to the terminal background. Let me know if you want additional information to help troubleshoot the issues. - Nov 10 2013

XFCE/XFWM4 Themes by bisoft 16 comments

So I recently downloaded this theme. However I think there might be some issues with the currently available files. First, I think the currently available upload might be an older version since there is no green MacOS or KDE theme which you pointed out you added later. Second, I may have missunderstood what you said, but you seem to indicate that the default xfwm4 theme should be something similar to the kokodi theme. However, whether I apply the default theme or the xfwm4_MacOS theme seem to yield the same result. That is both directories contain the macOS window decorations and widgets. The xfwm4_Win7 theme appears to yield the desired window decorations however. Lastly, when I apply any of the themes, my panels remain grey while your theme samples indicate they should be black with some transparency. Are the panel colors controlled by the theme or is that something that's manually configured? Thanks for you time. - Nov 08 2013
