A listing of random software, tips, tweaks, hacks, and tutorials I made for Ubuntu
Make XFCE4 look a bit like Unity
September 5, 2011Posted by on
I love the Unity interface, but my graphics card recently started breaking down, so I had to use Xubuntu. It was a simple job to make the panels look like unity, but the appmenu and the overlay scrollbars were a headache. So I decided to cut those features out.
To make your panel look like the panel in the screenshot above:
- Type in a Terminal window:
xfce4-panel -q killall -KILL xfconfd killall -KILL xfsettingsd cd ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml mv xfce4-panel.xml xfce4-panel.xml.bak wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/21016209/Unity-XFCE/xfce4-panel.xml
- Log out and log back in (killall -KILL xfce4-session)
