Without Gnome Control Center you can't have access to the Online Accounts. There is a way to hide gnome-control-center and just be able to see Online Accounts.

Gnome Control Panel is just a menu set... what program is being called and is it install-able on Xubuntu. If it is, should be a matter of setting up the menu item in Settings and All Setting I would think.

I also think designing an app to have access to cloud services for XFCE would be ideal, but seen how slow XFCE devs work and every Xubuntu release tends to be the same I don't think is a realistic scenario. That's why I believe Gnome Control Center is the best option and avoids re-inventing the wheel. Also it has great integration with most Cloud services, even better than Unity Online Accounts.

I am all for the cloud integration into Xubuntu but installing Gnome Control center is not the way, I don't think that would solve this. I believe it would be up to the devs of Xfce they could design an app much like gnome online accounts and integrate it into the desktop environment. This is a good idea to voice to voice to the devs.

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.
Thanks,

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.)
