Create custom themes for the xfce environment?


Hey, I was wondering if it was possible to create a custom themes using 48 * 48 pixel png images as icons.
I don't know how to CREATE a theme. I don't find any answer to that in the internet.

I will continue to create the theme icons only if I get a confirmation answer.

It's ok to just modify an existing theme. Is it possible to change the name of the theme after modifying it??

Offhand - I have no idea how you'd go about creating a theme for xfce.
But if you can find any themes that others have created (perhaps take a look at xfce-look.org ) - download the .tar.gz or .zip, or whatever format it's distributed in - unzip/decompress the archive and see what's in there.

Once you can see what has gone into an existing theme - you should hopefully be able to work out what you need to do to create and package yours.....That would be my advice!
