    Just installed Salix slackware 13.1 with xfce questions about themes

    So do i need a theme manager like emerald or do i just download the theme files? and what would be the extention of these files if thats case.

    As always thank you for your time in answering my questions.

    I don't recall, but I think, XFCE has a theme installer, assuming the theme is packaged properly.

    Otherwise, find a theme you like, generally the download will be a tar ball, extract the archive to /usr/share/themes (all users) or to ~/.themes (single user).

    Go to Menu -> Settings -> Appearance for GTK2 themes and Menu -> Settings -> Window Manager for xfwm themes.

    You should be able to use any GTK2 or icon themes you find on Eyecandy for your GNOME-Desktop -, but obviously not metacity or emerald specific themes. You can also find themes at Eyecandy for your Xfce-Desktop -

    I would suggest you go here to look up the information desired -- ttp:// Welcome to Salix -- where one learns to do it for oneself, but with some dependency resolution built in!

    3 suggestions:
    Look for Gslapt in the GUI; get Slackware Linux Essentials here -- Slackware Linux Essentials, Free SlackwareŽ Linux Essentials Guide -- and type
    PHP Code:
    slapt-get --help 
    in the terminal as root.
