In the Hardy days most of the Ubuntustudio theme would carry over to XFCE if
you installed it in an existing Ubuntustudio Hardy machine. I did just that in an
Athlon 500MHZ audio and photo editing machine because GNOME was too fat
for it, and almost all of the Ubuntustudio theme, icons, etc worked just fine.

I think it was sometime last Spring I again tested  XFCE, again with my themes,
desktop background, etc. Main issue was not being able to get rid of ugly gray ovals
around filenames on the desktop-and the multimonitor mess, screwing up something 
that worked fine in every other DE I tested.

This was using my private GTK3 supporting port/fork of the theme with the then current XFCE.
That version supports GTK2 and GTK3, has a few bugs but is fine for my purposes.

The old icon theme had one serious issue: the filesize of some of the high-resolution
icons was much too large, causing large directories full of mp3s to load and scroll very
slowly in file windows of programs like Audacity. I fixed that by rescaling the mp3 icon,
the one I had trouble with, to a lower resolution.
