Oh, well, it's a theme engine for GTK+-2.0, which means that you must
use apps that are designed for GTK+-2.0 to take advantage of this

Xfce 3 is designed for GTK+-1.2, so this engine is not for Xfce 3. You
can use it with the GNOME2 previews. If you use GNOME2, in the GNOME
menu, select "desktop preferences" and "Theme". Then click on the theme
"Xfce" in the list.

The window border are from xfwm4, which comes with 19 themes (as today).
If you're looking for xfwm4 preview snapshots, you can grab'em from or from
