Transparent Background for Icon Titles

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 Aaditya (talk) 07:56, 19 October 2013 (UTC)

I've edited your comment to use better quality links and more natural language. Ichimonji10 (talk) 14:06, 19 October 2013 (UTC)

gamin

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. 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. Chazza (talk) 12:04, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

Cleanup

I've done a big cleanup on this article. The organisation was all over the place. I've reordered some pieces of info into a more coherent structure, pruned the out of date info and re-written some sections to make them sound more professional. If somebody who is very knowledgeable about Xfce could look over this - particularly sections 5 and 6 - and remove cruft that would be great. Chazza (talk) 12:04, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
