Description:

XFCE Colour Lite consists of 6 themes. The Window theme is ultra lite.
XFCE Colour Dark also consists of 6 themes. The Window theme is greyish/dark.
Thanks to the Vimix themes pack.

-------------------------------------------------------
*NOTE:

IF THE WHISKER-MENU IS USING MORE RESOURCES THAN INTENDED, THEN PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING:
Go to Settings -> Panel -> Appearance -> Style -> Select `Solid Colour` or `Background image`

ALTERNATIVELY, you can click your secondary mouse button on the panel, and select Panel -> Panel Preferences... -> Appearance ...

This will not make the panel look any different, but it will use lesser resources as other themes.

This is a known bug to us that we can't get around without breaking the beautiful button layout! :(
The only way to get around this is the one stated above.
Let us know if you find other bug(s).
-------------------------------------------------------

If you want to make it available for all users, then go as root (but not recommended since it could make your maintenance harder):

Arch xfce started revving fans up and didn't stop until I removed the theme.

As I said earlier, that happens only with whiskermenu. The CPU usage goes higher. That could be fixed, but it so far changes the button layout.

For the time being:
Go to Settings -> Panel -> Appearance -> Style -> Select `Solid Colour` or `Background image`

This will fix the issue

I have tested this on XFCE 4.12 and 4.13, so far switching the panel style from 'None' to something else is a quick fix! But removing xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin will also fix it, but that's not a good solution!

Xfce panel. The pulse audio is white on panel in dark theme. Whisker is white on panel in dark theme. Why make the xfwm4 a different color than the top of thunar?

The xfwm4 and menu differs by colour, and I think it looks a bit better. Say with the pink, yellow/ruby/dark and beryl/doder all differs in the dark theme. It just to give a different look and feel...

I have really modified it in mousepad and geany, so far I didn't see anything! It's weird...

May I ask what are the versions of both mousepad and XFCE?

how did you get the bottom bat layout and top bar layout like that?

Report

For the preview I am using the Nemo file manager.

The top layout is set from the settings. If you are using xfwm4 WM (the xfce4 window manager), then you can do that pretty easily.

I was using thunar file manager if that what you where talking about. But i did not have that look in your preview.

I am using `Nemo` for the preview. If you are on Arch, use `pacman -S nemo`
Nemo is a Linux Mint file manager forked from Nautilus file manager!

My processor use went way up and fans started running as soon as I applied the dark theme. I am in Arch Xfce.

Yeah, is the panel appearance set to 'None (use system style)'? You just can set the style to solid colour.
I will fix this in the next update.

This bug is also mentioned in the Description of this theme.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but the higher CPU usage is due to a button layout (https://github.com/vinceliuice/vimix-gtk-themes/issues/56) . We can change that, but it will not look that elegant.

The only way to get around is to (as stated in the description):

Go to Settings -> Panel -> Appearance -> Style -> Select `Solid Colour` or `Background image`

It will not change the look, but it will reduce the CPU usage, and will work like any other XFCE themes.

Thank you!

I think I'm getting a similar issue its really buggy not sure if its do to CPU issue or what. I tried setting it to these and no difference at all. I can tell the theme is buggy when i right click the context meny and hover the blue its really buggy and the blue highlight shouldn't be doing these. Hopfully you fix it and fast becuase i do like this theme :)
