Having posted my own wood theme ages ago I thought I'd have a look at what other people are now doing and I must admit I love this one its a nice dark/oak looking theme, I'm using it now, well done!

Nice theme. It's disappointing when a theme like this comes together then you find there is no xfwm theme, here submitted in xfce-look

VicViper, this theme was probably submitted via Gnome-Look. Since both GNOME and Xfce use the GTK toolkit for the construction of their desktop themes, any GTK theme that's posted to Gnome-Look.org also shows up here on Xfce-Look.org and vice-versa.

However, Xfce can't use the window borders that GNOME uses. Likewise, GNOME can't use the Xfwm themes, and I'd bet the creator of this theme probably uses GNOME.

However, among the Xfwm themes that come with Xfce, I've found that "retro" looks pretty good with it, even though it's not a wooden Xfwm theme or anything.

Hope this helps!

OK, I've got this theme right now on my computer running Linux Mint Xfce edition, but there's one thing I've noticed about it.

Since there is a very light shade of gray being used as the window text color, I've noticed that there are some web pages where the text will be that very light shade of gray on a white background, and that creates a very poor contrast (at least it does in Xfce -- don't know about GNOME).

Therefore, in Firefox, to be able to view web pages the way they should be viewed you'll need to go to Edit --> Preferences, click the "Content" tab on top of the preferences dialog box, and then click on the "Colors" button, which is the next-to-last one down on the right side, In the colors dialog box, there's a checkbox that's the next-to-last item down on the left side, labeled "Use System Colors", which you will need to UN-check, and then you'll have your black print on a white background back! :-)

What a piece of artwork! Thanks for taking the time to create this - it's quite unique!

I've wondered off and on for a long time ever since I first broke from Windows in favor of Linux back in January of 2005 if making a wooden theme like this was even possible. Well, this just happens to prove that it is indeed possible.

Emil54, you, sir, are a true genius, and I mean that. Thanx for posting this! :-)

This theme is gorgeous! Now if there was a desktop background to go with it, you'd have the whole deal.

We are not worthy to tie the laces of your shoes.

If you feel like making more of these themes, please don't even think about hesitating to do so.
