I think you guys are getting a bit off topic.

The main reason to use Gnome Control Center is to have easy access to Cloud Services. We are moving more towards the cloud and I find a lot of distros are trying to offer support to these services.

For the ones that have been talking about Gnome apps breaking your theme, that will soon change. XFCE 4.14 is moving towards GTK3 and Xubuntu 16.10 is already shipping with some xfce 4.14 plugins. By then most XFCE themes should move to gtk3 as well.

I think is the right time to include Gnome Control Center to future Xubuntu releases.

Right, take a look at my screenshot here:


The Mousepad app shows the correct window border where the Gnome Calculator on the right, shows the Gnome window border (ugly). As you can see the Gnome Calculator is not picking up and using the defined window dressing. I don't like that. :-/

Like I mentioned earlier, I just uninstalled that app and installed Galculator instead which works/loooks like my other apps.

How do GNOME apps ignore the widow manager theme? Do they draw their own window decorations or something? (I'm not on my Xubuntu box to check right now.)
