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 ) - 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!
Try reading the XFCE Theme How To.

To create a new theme it looks like you have to be good with writing code.
