Openbox Nightmare theme with XFCE?

Hello

Is it possible to implement the openbox Nightmare theme in XFCE? https://www.google.fr/search?q=nightmar … HVHC1qukM:

It comes with the Openbox configuration manager in Openbox, LXDE and LXQT but I have never been able to install it in other DE. 

Thanks

Xfce doesn't understand openbox theming.  I know because I adapted the Clearlooks Phenix Purpy color theme for openbox.  Completely different animal.  You would have to find a theme that works with Xfce and reverse engineer the colors.  To get the layout like that be prepared to drill down deeply into the theme structure.  I dipped a toe there and it was more than I wanted to take on.

There are some themes for xfce that you might like. Try Albatross (part of murrine-themes) or Numix-Frost (I can't figure out where I got this one.)

+1 on Numix Frost, beautiful theme. And compatible with most DE's and window managers.

@FSR: It's in Miyolinux, that's where I got it too.

Re: Openbox Nightmare theme with XFCE?

OP: you should be able to disable loading xfwm from the session settings, and add "openbox" as an autostart command.

You can test it like so:

openbox --replace

If that works, you can run an xfce session with openbox and any other gtk theme or settings you want.
(Nightmare goes well with the albatross theme, btw.)
