Option to disable GTK Client Side Decorations


Description woob 2016-12-23 23:43:55 CET
There should be an option to feign non-support for GTK's Client Side Decorations to effectively disable them. For some (myself included), CSD can be very disruptive to user experience, so including an easy way to disable them would be massively appreciated.

See https://www.xfce-look.org/p/1016214/
Link contains a theme that is just a 2-px border on all windows.
Comment contains instructions for removing all CSD entirely.

There is a difference between a 2px border and no border at all, if you want the latter, just create an empty theme like this:

mkdir -p /usr/share/themes/empty/xfwm4/
touch /usr/share/themes/empty/xfwm4/themerc "

These directions will create an xfwm theme named "empty" with the effect you desire.  I named mine "Borderless" to make it easier for me to find.
