I've scoured the internet and the forums trying to figure this out. What most people seem to suggest is to change the .nautilus-desktop-canvas-items section in gnome-applications.css in the theme folder. This seems to work, but the theme I want to use didn't have a gnome-applications.css, so I went ahead a created one with the tweaked settings. After the first reboot, it seemed to work strangely enough, but on subsequent reboots it stopped working (the desktop font color went dark again and I can't see the text on a dark background like I have). Any idea what happened?
Also, since I would like to be able to change the theme in the future without tweaking, is it possible to change the setting so it overrides all themes?
