[manjaro] install the theme xfwm4-theme-w8-mono

There is an awesome theme for XFCE called w8 that make your window borders look like Windows 8. However, with yaourt I cannot install it for a while. A long time ago it worked, but something happened to the package :( How to install it manually?

Visit https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/xfwm4-theme-w8-mono/ and download the source. Unpack it somewhere. Then switch to root mode and copy it to the /usr/share/themes folder (thus you will have a /usr/share/themes/w8/xfwm4 folder with some files in it). Open Xfce Theme Manager, click on the Advanced button, then click on Rebuild DB. Now under the “Window Borders” tab w8 should appear.

In this post I also write about this theme (and explain how to move window buttons to the left).
