Porteus XFCE 5.0rc3 modern look

Post#1 by AcnapyxoB » 29 Dec 2021, 17:37

Not that I don't like the default look of XFCE (v5.0rc3) with elementary-xfce icons theme, but I look for something more fancy.

Since most applications come with icons in package, there is no need for additional icons (for apps) in base modules that duplicate them.
I took as a basis Papirus and Papirus Remix icons themes, played a little and cleaned up unnecessarily icons.

The result is a decent-sized module - 1.7 MB (~10 MB extracted)

The battery icon in right panel looks big, for a more normal size add in /home/guest/.config/gtk-3.0

Code: Select all

#xfce4-power-manager-plugin image {
  -gtk-icon-transform: scale(.8); }
and restart xfce panel with "xfce4-panel -r" in terminal.

I will be happy if someone else likes them!

@AcnapyxoB, thanks for your work!

It looks elegant indeed. But I have to confess that I have mixed feelings about this trend of having monochromatic icons. :teehee:

I found some inconsistencies.

Only 'Documents' and 'Downloads' have this extra sphere icon: https://www.mediafire.com/file/5k78prta ... -54-23.png

In file open, storage units icons are monochromatic, but on the Desktop they have colors:https://www.mediafire.com/file/bixm5ajr ... -54-46.png

Games section (in the application menu) is missing its icon: https://www.mediafire.com/file/w93bsm1y ... -55-19.png

----

I got inspired by your work and I optimized our current Elementary icon package: from 4 MB to 3 MB :magic:

Sorry late to answer, I'm using a mix of Papirus+Paper+Custom icons (got from internet and modified icons)
