I am changing the colors in [[Xfce#Transparent_Background_for_Icon_Titles]] from this:
 
 
style "xfdesktop-icon-view" {
 
XfdesktopIconView::label-alpha = 10
 
base[NORMAL] = "#000000"
 
base[SELECTED] = "#71B9FF"
 
base[ACTIVE] = "#71FFAD"
 
fg[NORMAL] = "#ffffff"
 
fg[SELECTED] = "#71B9FF"
 
fg[ACTIVE] = "#71FFAD" }
 
widget_class "*XfdesktopIconView*" style "xfdesktop-icon-view"
 
 
To this:
 
 
style "xfdesktop-icon-view" {
 
XfdesktopIconView::label-alpha = 10
 
base[NORMAL] = "#000000"
 
base[SELECTED] = "#71B9FF"
 
base[ACTIVE] = "#71B9FF"
 
fg[NORMAL] = "#fcfcfc"
 
fg[SELECTED] = "#ffffff"
 
fg[ACTIVE] = "#ffffff" }
 
widget_class "*XfdesktopIconView*" style "xfdesktop-icon-view"
 
 
The latter looks more consistent and simplistic to me  [[User:Aaditya|Aaditya]] ([[User talk:Aaditya|talk]]) 07:56, 19 October 2013 (UTC)

==<s> gamin </s>==
 
 
In the first bit of "Installation", this article suggests installing gamin. I vaguely understand that gamin allows Thunar to show removable drives and CDs. If this is true, can someone add a note about that? It would've saved me about an hour...
 
 
EDIT: This text seems to be striked out and I'm too tired to figure out why. [[User:To7m|To7m]] ([[User talk:To7m|talk]]) 02:18, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
 
 
:I also would like to know what gamin is needed for. It does not provide browsing of removable drives, this is handled by GVFS, as explained in [[Thunar]].

::Edit: I don't know what gamin is for but I've included more or less what is said in the gamin wiki page. It's the best I can do. -- [[User:Chazza|Chazza]] ([[User talk:Chazza|talk]]) 12:04, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
 
 
:::If it's already covered on this wiki, then just link to it - no need to duplicate the content. -- [[User:Lahwaacz|Lahwaacz]] ([[User talk:Lahwaacz|talk]]) 17:50, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
 
 
::::I'm going to remove the gamin tip. As far as I can tell from [http://oss.sgi.com/projects/fam/ here] and [https://people.gnome.org/~veillard/gamin/ here] it helps gui tools to track file changes. I have an xfce installation here without gamin and thunar shows the changes to my files just fine. My system shows no benefits with gamin installed and no problems when gamin is not installed. I can confirm that no desktop environment pulls in gamin as a dependency so I see no reason for this tip to still be on the wiki page. If a user has a particular need for gamin they're still free to install it. -- [[User:Chazza|Chazza]] ([[User talk:Chazza|talk]]) 15:20, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
 
 
:::::I think you've done the right thing; even if gamin was required, it should be mentioned in [[Thunar]], not here. Closing. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 07:41, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
