Thread: Replacing GNOME with Xfce

  1. #1

    Default Replacing GNOME with Xfce

    Hi!

    I have been looking to go with Xfce 4.10 and decided to install it on a standard GNOME installation (12.2 live CD).
    Everything is working good, I've set the defaults to lightdm / xfwm.

    The only issue is that GTK3 apps (therefore all system config, etc. guis) do not have styling at all, but have a win32 look and gigantic paddings.

    Is it possible to make those apps use GTK2 styling? Or install versions of them that ship with the Xfce spin? I don't mean _all_ GTK3 stuff, but at least YaST and Transmission.

    I would like to avoid reinstalling from DVD.


    Thanks,
    zod

    Try going to your /home/user/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml
    and delete
    Code:
    xsettings.xml
    then logout and login
    People who do not break things first will never learn to create anything
