Xfce Theme Manager, a theme manager for Xubuntu

With the latest modifications made by the development team of Xfce, users of this desktop have been overwhelmed by the many options they have for modify a desktop theme or create your own. Furthermore, in many elements changes cannot be previewed carried out, something that I personally value more and more. Faced with this problem, it has been created Xfce Theme Manager, an application that allows us to modify, create and export a theme in our Xfce in an easy and simplified way.

Installing Xfce Theme Manager

Xfce Theme Manager is developed for distributions based on Debian and/or Ubuntu as Xubuntu, although its popularity has caused it to be exported to other distributions such as Arch Linux.

In order to have this program installed we need to install it through the terminal since it is not available in the official repositories of Xubuntu. We open the terminal and write

sudo add-apt-repository ppa: rebuntu16 / other-stuff

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install xfce-theme-manager

With this we will have installed Xfce Theme Manager, now we only have to open Xfce Theme Manager and modify our theme in Xubuntu.

There is another way of installation. This method would consist of downloading the binaries and installing them using the sh command although we are not going to stop at this method since both the developers and the source where I found this program do not recommend this installation method, but the first one described.

Today I use Unity so I can tell you first impressions of Xfce Theme ManagerHowever, it is worth trying it since among its benefits it has the option of saving all the modifications in a file so that they can be reloaded on that computer or on another. A very interesting utility that can facilitate the task of using Xubuntu in a corporate environment without becoming a developer. What do you think of this software? Do you use a manager for your desktop themes or do you use the predefined themes or included in Xubuntu / Ubuntu?

Tell your experience, I thank our friends from FromLinux They told me about this software with many opportunities. Now it's your turn.
