This is a fork of libxfce4ui with the explicit goal of removing Client-Side Decorations (CSD).
Currently, functions introduced in somewhere between libxfce4ui 4.15 and 4.16 enable CSD by default for all applications that use the XfceTitledDialog class. This is a rather invasive UI change and, for some, is entirely unwanted. Since, upstream has indicated that they have no intention to allow users to turn CSD off, this fork exists to allow users to disable CSD in any applications that use libxfce4ui.
We implement all CSD-specific functionality as ABI-compatible shims that simply forward to the relevant GtkDialog methods. This allows upstream applications built against upstream libxfce4ui to function with no modifications.

Gentoo: Xfce Classic Overlay
Ubuntu: Xubuntu QA Experimental PPA
Note: The Xubuntu QA Experimental PPA currently contains builds of libxfce4ui-nocsd with the package name libxfce4ui-nocsd-2-0. The package name and availability on this PPA is subject to change in the future.
To build libxfce4ui-nocsd from sources, you just need to perform the standard autotools dance:
$ ./autogen.sh # Not requried for tarballs from the Releases tab $ ./configure --prefix=/opt/libxfce4ui-nocsd # Choose any prefix you'd like $ make $ make install
Once installed to your chosen prefix, simply add the lib folder to the top of your
LD_LIBRARY_PATH to ensure that applications dynamically linked against libxfce4ui will choose this version over any others you may have installed on your system.
