* The moderators of this forum reserve the right to edit or remove your posts as necessary so they may comply with our Community Rules.

Wallpaper: Name/where you got it (with link would be nice).

Icons: Name/where you got it (with link would be nice).

Programs: Name/where you got it (with link would be nice).

The GTK theme? Yeah, it should work fine, it has a GTK2 and GTK3 theme.

Changelog on the theme's page says it has XFCE support: http://gnome-look.or...?content=157986

Despite the fact that I enjoy seeing how other people configure their desktops, I have never posted mine here before. I intend to rectify that now. It doesn't change very much from month to month (other than the wallpaper) because I basically have it configured exactly how I want it.

GTK+ Theme: TaditionalOK (MATE's GTK3 variant of Clearlooks)
Window Border Color: #EDECEB
Input Box Color: #FFFFFF
Selected Item Color: #9A9A9A
Tooltips Color: #F5F5B5
Icon Theme: MATE-Faenza
Wallpaper: http://www.wallpaper...r 2560X1600.jpg

Wallpaper found on Google

Im actually testing out Debian 7 and thinking of switching over from Arch purely because my power user setup disagrees with my better half who has now started using the desktop more often :p. Really need to work out if Steam will play nicely with my current setup first though, because i don't want to loose my gaming ability :D

switched from Xfce4 to DWM as it suits me better :)
Font: Envy Code R
SysInfo: Conky (showing each core usage of CPU / Loads / Mem / Down/Upspeed / Date & Time)
Wall found on google
Terminal: XTerm

Still in the process of working out the kinks in my custom DWM config.h and the colour scheme but you can't complain :)

Although I've registered almost 10 years ago at neowin, I always come back to check this topic. Now it's my turn to post. Only took me 10 years to come up with something as half as good as your posts, guys.

EDIT: Ok, 9 years.
