XFCE themes
Hi guys,
On a whim I downloaded XFCE and gave it a go... I must say I rather like it, although I have a few problems.

First of all, I want to make my bottom bar look like Mac OSX's bar. Problem is that each theme I try keeps the Gnome look (from the Ubuntu default). Is there any way to change the taskbar theme?

Secondly, is there no recycle bin in XFCE? That is majorly unsavory if so.

Third, My keyboard has a volume control built in which works fine in Gnome, but its not working in XFCE.

I am running Ubuntu Dapper- thanks much in advance guys.

XFCE does not show a recycle bin or any icons on your desktop (this will change in newer versions). I think you can install the rox filer if you want icons on your desktop whilst using XFCE. XFCE uses GTK2 just like GNOME, so the look you describe is native to XFCE. If you want MacOS like themes seach at You can tinker with the panel size and other settings to make look like OS X but I am not sure how well this will work out. Not sure about your volume control.
