How can I make my images into themes for Xfce?
I'm running Xfce in Linux Mint. Nobody's helping me with this over on the LM site (?????), so if you can help it would be most appreciated.

OK, first a really silly question. Do you mean desktop background or the window decorations and panels etc?
If you mean the later, I don't know if there is specific tool to create them. Have a look in /usr/share/themes/ which is where the system wide themes go and you can see what's needed. You can also put themes in ~/.themes but only you will be able to use them.

I don't use xfce, but howto:install_new_themes [Xfce Wiki] has some decent themes. They look pretty standard. A bunch of xpms and an rc file to go with them.
Gimp will do xpm, but you need the right libXpm to export . There was security issues with many of the libXpms that are out there, and the one that I finally got to work was an old one, libXpm-3.5.7.tar.gz, dated about Sep 2007. Using the libXpm that came with my system, I could not save xpms from gimp.
