Solved it by accident. After being frustrated with high cpu usage and overheating, I downgraded my Ubuntu Gnome installation from 16.04 to 14.04.

add ppa to the repo as normal, do not update the repo. Go into system settings>software & updates>other software. There you'll need to edit the ppa both main & source.

Xfce uses GTK+ (just like GNOME, Unity and Pantheon). However, it does not require any external 'Tweak Tools' (unlike GNOME, Unity and Pantheon) because it is very customizable by default — all settings are included and change-able by default.
