How to change font colors on certain programs in Gnome 3

Postby narnie on Sat May 12, 2012 4:07 pm

Since an upgrade (following debian testing), the font contrast is awful in Gnome Tweak and gnome-terminal tab buttons. I'll attach a screenshot.

I'm not sure what I need to change. There are gnome-shell themes, windows themes, etc. I've changed them all, but nothing seems to change the font contrast in programs like above except going to the Access settings and selecting high-contrast, which isn't the way I want to live. I would like a way to change the font to black.

See these screencaps:

Can someone please give me an idea of what I need to change?

Thanks,

I have the same problem. When I choose to use the "Applications" menu, none of the options are even visible.
If I choose one, the item shows up clearly once selected but I can't see the list of options.

Me too. After googling, some non-lmde-specific information points out, that a file named .gtkrc-2.0 shall be edited. At least in my home-folder, there is no such file.
Also, I can't seem to select another theme. As a workaround, I have set "High Contrast" in the Accessibility Options. It's ugly, but better than not seeing anything at all..
I also would much like to change the system font face, not only the color.

[moved here]
uninstall mint-x-themes and install mint-themes (the former is gtk3.2 compatible and the latter gtk3.4, that's why you are seeing those visual incompatibilities)

grizzlyfred,
do you have gnome-tweak-tool installed?
