Description:

UPDATE: This is an Improved version from my Original AzenisXFM I uploaded. I repositioned the titlebuttons and I made the entire border slightly larger and more bold. It more closely resembles the original Metacity border theme, but with more "ergonomic spacing."

Fix for icon text being offset on desktop on XFCE4:
In terminal, please run:
xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -p /desktop-icons/center-text -n -t bool -s false

Please Note: Apps menu is my own Modification of Whiskermenu and it is not included with theme. Currently, it pretty much only works on my machine because it is being held up with strings and duck tape by Python Script.
UPDATE: I have made some patches that can give an Aeznis Backdrop to ZorinMenuLite.


I have recently discovered PCMan's "gtk-nocsd" product. You can read here:
https://github.com/PCMan/gtk3-nocsd
It is available in repositories and can be installed from terminal.
What This Does: It disables gtkClientSideDecoration on apps that use it, allowing the Window Manager to do so.
Given the current trend and the news that XFCE 4.16 will fully switch to CSD (Becoming like Gnome 3) and will remove XFWM4 (No more XFCE Window manager which is why many of us switched to XFCE desktop in the first place) - It is very important to let the developers know whether you disagree with this decision. (I have done so- Loudly.)

https://mail.xfce.org/pipermail/xfce/2019-October/036689.html
Currently, the developers do not seem to be listening. Rather, they feel they should explain to us, the users, why what they want for us (and themselves) is what we should want, too.
If you disagree with XFCE removing XFWM and replacing it with GNome 3 CSD, please use the links and Be Heard.

Many years ago, J.J. Ying created the Azenis theme for Windowblinds.
The theme was first ported to KDE by Ezy (Our heartfelt thanks), many years ago.
https://store.kde.org/p/1100870/
JamesHardy88 ported a version for Gnome2, by adapting the original artwork to fit. Jameshardy88 and TechnoShaun supplied many great themes, tweaks and customization including Azenis.
The Port used "The Preface" icons by dar0ckx.
In 2019, I finally came to my senses and became a Linux user, through Zorin OS. Searching themes for my new OS, I came across a theme called Azenis. Instantly, I knew I wanted the Azenis theme; it was love at first sight.
Yantar put forth an XFCE window decoration based on JamesHardy88's work. This is based on Yantars contribution. Using it on a tablet edition PC, I discovered one flaw with Azenis. The titlebar buttons are too close together, making it easy to miss your target.
I modded this to extend the buttons out, allowing for better accuracy with those of us who didn't learn from the cheerio in the commode bowl, too well.
Labeled as Azenis XFM for Yantar's AzenisXF-Modified.

Thanks, cybermunki. For others that may wonder, D3Euronism is the prominent font used.

You did a very nice work with this, probably better than my theme for deKorator. There area fault with my theme near the buttons, but that was deKorators shortcoming and could not be fixed.

If I ever use XFCE (KDE fan forever) I might try your theme. Good work anyway!

Heh heh heh... Challenge accepted? I see that Plasma 5 is GTK3. I have already laid the groundwork on GTK3 Azenis theme. It only lacks a windows Decorator, since Gnome goes about that in a different way. I got around it by using Compiz-reloaded along with an Emerald theme.
Smaragd is an Emerald-like Window Decorator for Plasma5.
https://store.kde.org/p/1167274
Allowing this to be used, as well:
https://store.kde.org/p/1003872/
Note TonyMaros comment, that I understand and helped inspire this mess I uploaded here....
Perhaps I will make an emerald that uses the XFM style seen here. Although, I guess I would need to call that one KDM.
In the meantime, I will continue working to make a Full GTK3 Version available and have added Plasma5 to the plan, to see if I can make one for Plasma. It MAY be easier with Plasma since it has kdecorator.

I was first to port Azenis (to KDE). JamesHardy88 based is theme on my work when he ported it to Gnome. You might want to add that to your description. Also base your work from Windowblinds Azenis as JamesHardy88 has edited the artwork to fit his theme and therefor not original artwork.

I added a correction in the comments section on the Azenis FXM Red page, as well. The remaining question now is: Who first used dar0ckx's "The Preface" icons to compliment the package.
I admit, I have modified MUCH of the artwork of "The Preface" icons as well as smashing together a few new ones using that same design to my set in use on my personal machine.

Ezy, thisis like meetingYoda.
I will adjust the descriptions. Much of this work was done many years ago and tracking down who did hat was not easy. Pun not intended.
