I want to install this but i have no idea how to do it. http://xfce-look.org/content/show.php/X-Aero+%28XFWM4+Windows+7+%2B+Vista+Theme%29?content=170901 Can anyone give me a sep-by-step please?
1. Download X-Aero theme
Open your terminal and run following command :
2. Extract the theme
cd Downloads/ && unzip 170901-x-aero.zip
3. Copy all theme folder to /usr/share/themes
First, open Thunar as root :
Select all X-Aero theme folder in
Paste it to
4. Open your theme setting
Go to Setting --> Appearance and you'll see many themes with X-Aeros name, click on one of them.
I see they only offer a tar.gz file now, for which the accepted steps don't work. This worked for me, select all lines and shift+insert paste it into your terminal:
cd ~/Downloads wget -N https://dl.opendesktop.org/api/files/download/id/1460766502/170901-X-Aero.tar.gz cd /usr/share/themes sudo tar -xzf ~/Downloads/170901-X-Aero.tar.gz sudo chmod -R 755 X-Aero* sudo chmod -R 644 X-Aero*/xfwm4/*
That will download any newer version and fix the permissions. You will manually have to go to Settings, Window Manager to select one of the X-Areo themes.
