Manjaro's XFCE But For Ubuntu

#1

Hey guys,

So I started a new job in Amazon Web Services a few days ago as a DCO/Mobile Repair(MR) where I’ll more or less be starting to troubleshoot faults in server hardware and they give everyone the choice of whether to run Windows 10, Ubuntu 14.04 or Ubuntu 16.04(18.04 isn’t an option either).
I already asked if I could run another distro and that was a resounding NOPE so in a battle between Windows and anything Linux I’d take even Ubuntu.

So my question is how would I get Manjaro’s default XFCE onto Ubuntu?
I know I could just install bog standard XFCE but I just love the way Manjaro’s XFCE looks and functions the moment after a fresh install.

Cheers guys.

All the Xfce settings can be found here: https://gitlab.manjaro.org/profiles-and-settings/manjaro-xfce-settings

Also you will need the default GTK theme: https://github.com/adapta-project/adapta-gtk-theme

And the default icon theme: https://github.com/Ste74/papirus-maia-icon-theme

@Photon Thanks man, I’m going to give it a go on the work laptop when i get a chance. They aren’t the best laptops, I’d kill to be able to use my Thinkpad in there over the rubbish old Dell’s with dead pixels they give out but hopefully Ubuntu’s lower requirements will get it up to scratch a bit more.
