Open your home folder.
Click View > Show hidden files .... scroll down and open the file ".gtkrc-2.0"
It should be empty except for the line
Code: Select all
include ".gtkrc-xfce"


leave that line there, and add the following text:
Code: Select all
style "xfdesktop-icon-view" {
XfdesktopIconView::label-alpha = 0

fg[NORMAL] = "#ffffff"
fg[SELECTED] = "#ffffff"
fg[ACTIVE] = "#ffffff"
}

widget_class "*XfdesktopIconView*" style "xfdesktop-icon-view"


Save the file, and logout/login to show the change.
