I did some testing with the oxygen icons theme, commonly designed to be
used in or with KDE/Qt. I can imagine a general issue here with inter-
opability between the different desktop environments. So there should
be a general functionality to support incomplete themes like oxygen
seems to be when used in Xfce.
When oxygen icons are used in Xfce, some buttons, starters or menu
entries loose their icons. As it turns out, hat's due to a configuration
issue in the index.theme file. It seems to be related to a common
conflict between both themes gnome and hicolor, from both normally gets
inherited in gtk theming. But we have a KDE theme here …
There are some ideas how we can work around or maybe do a good fix:
1.) The quick and dirty hack:
sed -i s-hicolor-Fedora,hicolor- /usr/share/icons/oxygen/index.theme
2.) We can not assume gnome or fedora-icon-theme is always present: one
approach here would be to add an explicit dep $somewhere, and then
also set that as gtk-fallback-icon-theme in xfsettingsd (suggestion by
rdieter via IRC discussion)
Note: Fedora theme or gnome themes aren't enforced by any normally
installed standard package.
What do you think?
Hi everyone! Things appear pretty calm in the Xfce world — are there
any things we want to highlight for the upcoming release that would
make a good Fedora Magazine article?
Maybe even: "Xfce — it ain't changing" :)

Though, my cheese badge suggestion will not win the race, I'll try now
with some improvements to the criteria.

+ Self introduction has been done to the mailing list, at least there
should be one mail available here in the list with senseful content
(well, I don't write senseful things either). Otherwise we would have
honored spammers for their work. ;o)
+ Maybe something else additionally what I can not imagine now.
A new Fedora badge has been proposed for "membership in the XFCE SIG":
As far as I can see, there is not a formal definition of membership in
the group. Some options for awarding the badge:
- We could create a new FAS group and trigger the badge awarding off
of that. Lots of other badges work this way, so it is easy to do.
The only downside is that you have a FAS group with no other real
purpose than for handing out badges. It has to be maintained,
pruned eventually, etc..
- Or, instead, we could take one or two volunteers from the SIG to be
'in charge' of the badge. There is a self-service interface in the
webapp where they could manually award the badge to sig members as
they see fit.
I'd like to do it however the sig wants it done. Can you hash it out
and let the badges crew know by posting back in the trac ticket above?

AFAIK, there are already general badges to count packages and karma.
Where is the difference for XFCE special?

I set the degree of transparency for my mate-terminal, but then I
changed the background, and now I can't find the place again where I can
adjust the opacity again. (I *think* that place called it transparency
rather than opacity.)
Clue, please? TIA!
