I posted this on Mastodon, but I'll also post it here. tongue

I'm using XFCE. If anyone would like theming info, I'd be glad to share those.
The background is something I made myself. LMK if anyone wants that also big_smile

I value utilitarianism a lot, and BL reflects that value really, really well.

I like to have more stacking / manual tiling WMs a lá openbox around.
The theming is exceedingly difficult, iirc? All done via tiny PNG graphics?

Oh it is nuts!  I started theming it out changing the colors and so forth only to see nothing changing. Wait what?

So, took a look at the .png's and every single one has to be adjusted! lol.  Not that bad really.  Opened them all in gimp and had a copy/paste fun fest for an hour or so.

Pekwm is really interesting.  It may wind up being my new default just for kicks. Runs about the same as Openbox on Ram. (Fluxbox runs 20MB or so, less.) Edit* Installed, Pekwm runs lighter than both.
I set it up with Plank and Stalonetray.  Kept my "monster panel" toggle when needed.

Pekwm is now an option in my smaller build, with Openbox now the default. big_smile

Inspired by Yeti-Lithium, I wanted a dark grey-ish theme. My first theme in months, BL-Lithium-dark-grey. Here it is on Debian Cinnamon...

Image files are not required to theme pekwm. You can replace the image file name in the theme with a texture and color; and I believe pekwm accepts color gradients

An ugly scrot just for show; note the color change in the theme file:

Their documentation is admitedly cryptic; there use to be a really good tutorial for configuring pekwm online. It may still be available. Includes all the theme options and some examples. If you hunt around box-look.org and deviantArt you can fine some pekwm themes that do not use image files.

Thanks! I love the default Lithium theme with the default wallpaper, but it's too blue with a lot of other walls. This one is only slightly arc-blue. I'll do a few with different highlight colors to match Papirus colors, sold...

Been a while since I've used pekwm, but just get yourself a theme - this is a good one and experiment with it. Anywhere there is a image file, you can substitute in a texture and color. For example, in the pekwm theme file "Tab" is the titlebar (pekwm is a tabbing window manager like fluxbox) so you can edit this stanza:

	Tab {
		Focused = "Image title.png"
		FocusedSelected = "Image title.png"
		Unfocused = "Image title.png"
		UnfocusedSelected = "Image title.png"
		}

to look like this:

	Tab {
		Focused = "Solid #964923"
		FocusedSelected = "Solid #E56E34"
		Unfocused = "Solid #111111"
		UnfocusedSelected = "Solid #E56E34"
		}

and the titlebars will be colored and change color when selecting - by default pekwm is focus follows mouse/sloppy focus; that can be changed to click-to-focus.

Best thing to do is get a theme and just make obvious changes - like bright red - where there are image files to see how the decor changes. Then you'll have a grasp of the theme elements.

I Like it! You have a good grasp of this.

My theme is waay too blue.  Have to find only certain pics.

Just now learning some of the way the css file works.  Mind blowing number of combinations. Still have a bunch of small problems to iron out. 

Are there cheat tools for this? Any tools? I just have my own notes to go off.

It looks like the objective is to get as close to neutral while still displaying the colors, so different wallpapers don't cause problems.

Thought I would try a sort of clay color at some point.

Yes, once you get one set up, it's a template for the rest. That documentation has the various textures like "Solidraised".
