welcome aboard btw.
I maintain the xfce4 packages, three of which contain branding, each
in a different way (none of them is the default theme anymore, so to see
them, the user has to select them explicitely):
1. gtk-xfce-engine contains an Archlinux theme, no logo branding just a
small gtk theme based on that engine
(I started on an evolution of this, but it's nowhere near a usable
2. xfwm4: it contains a little icon-sized logo, which is an xpm file
size 15x18, actively usable area even smaller. We can either replace
the logo, or create a new theme. James would be happy, I think he
dislikes the old one with a passion :P
3. the toughest one: xfce4-session. This contains a splash screen, which
is a transparent png file, so that via the background-settings you can
control the colour of the screen. It is based on a blend file which I
think actually lost :( Sorry for that. But we would have to model the
logo anyway new etc and maybe it's just time for a new splash screen.
Oh, to be clear: the splash screen contains a 3d rendered old logo.
