You can quickly delete a custom theme by holding control and clicking on the thumbnail, only custom themes you  have  created  can be deleted and only the database entry is removed nothing is uninstalled from your system.

To install a theme/gtk/icon/cursor/border/wallpaper just drag and drop the archive (wallpapers should  not be  archived) anywhere on the main window and if posible the theme etc will be installed into the correct place, all installations are local, supported archive types  are:  "*.tgz","*.gz","*.zip","*.tar","*.bz2", supported  wallpaper  types  are:  "*.jpg","*.png","*.bmp","*.gif"  anything else you will have to install yourself.

You must have unzip installed to drag 'n' drop .zip files.

The thumbnails are stored in ${HOME}/.config/XfceThemeManager.

The DB is updated automatically on drag'n'drop, if you do a lot of adding and removing of themes/icons etc you may want to run Re-build DB from the advanced tab.

Meta  Themes are themes that contain a gtk2 folder and an xfwm4 folder (ie window frames and controls), if there is a gnome-like "theme.index" file that also specifies an icon set this will be used as well.


Spanish/German is now catered for if you have set the 'LANG' enviroment variable properly, other translations are invited email me for a list to be translated.

INSTALL:
Extract the archive say into /tmp, cd into /tmp/Xfce-Theme-Manager-(VERSION), run ./autogen.sh ( or ./configure ), make, sudo make install, this will install the Xfce-Theme-Manager GUI, icon and the desktop file.

The GUI can be run from the command line or from the settings menu.
The GUI can be manually installed and/or run from the main folder.

There is no configure script as the makefile is very simple, default is to install in /usr/local/bin this can be changed by setting the PREFIX variable prior to make install ( sudo make install PREFIX=/usr ).

If you have a source based pkg manager like slackware the dev files for glib etc should already be installed, if you are using a debian based install you may have to install the dev packages as well, from a terminal for a clean system type:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential glib-2.0-dev libgtk2.0-dev libxfce4ui-1-dev

Check your installation documentation for further details, but this works on a new clean version of xubuntu-12.10, other flavours of debian based installs should be the same.
You may have to access xfce-theme-manager via the main settings manager in the main menu.

You may have to run  xfce4-panel --restart to see the Xfce-Theme-Manager menu item in settings.

If you are upgrading from an older version please rebuild the DB ( from the "Advanced" tab ).
