Manjaro configuration and theming for XFCE when installing desktop

I installed Xfce desktop, on top of my existing Gnome desktop. Then, as per the wiki
https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php/Install_Desktop_Environments#XFCE
I did:

Optional: Install the Manjaro configuration and theming for XFCE

sudo pacman -S manjaro-xfce-gtk3-settings manjaro-settings-manager

To configure LightDM to match the official iso replace the contents of /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf with

[greeter] background = /usr/share/backgrounds/illyria-default-lockscreen.jpg font-name = Cantarell Bold 12 xft-antialias = true icon-theme-name = Adapta-Papirus-Maia screensaver-timeout = 60 theme-name = Adapta-Eta-Maia cursor-theme-name = xcursor-breeze show-clock = false default-user-image = #avatar-default xft-hintstyle = hintfull position = 50%,center 50%,center clock-format = panel-position = bottom indicators = ~host;~spacer;~clock;~spacer;~language;~session;~a11y;~power

But I got a generic theming with the xfce mouse on it; nothing was Manjaro-like.

You have to copy what is in /etc/skel/ to your user home directory, or create a new user if the manjaro-xfce-gtk3-settings was installed after the system ...

Thanks.
Now I realize I missed a step. In the wiki it says
" edit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf , under [Seat:*] replace the greeter-session setting with greeter-session=lightdm-gtk-greeter"
