[SOLVED] Firstcoming Cinnamon Theme artist

Postby Danko8321 on Wed Mar 28, 2012 1:57 am

Well, easy way to say it, I have been having a lot of problems dealing with Cinnamon Themes; most of them I have managed to solve, but there is one very big very important one that I haven't been able to change. I feel kinda silly saying it, but I have absolutely no idea of how to change the popup-menu text color; accidentaly changed it to black in a dark theme, now menus can't be seen; could anyone give me some help? My theme is unusable as it is now. Cheers. Danko.

Well, after about 1 week of searching and finding nothing at all, I found nothing at all. I am still clueless regarding of how to change the font color in the menus; however, I don't know how, the menus have gotten back to their white color. I'll post again when I find the value that changes it's color, but there is nothing yet.

Well Finally! I found it. Check this out:

Code: Select all
.popup-menu {
   color: #000000;
   font-size: 9.5pt;
   min-width: 100px;
}


Turns out that that "color" value defines the color of the text inside the popups (not all of them, of course). Cinnamon is great and all, but have such a thing handle color is absolutely counter-intuitive. They should at least have a little manual with this kind of terminologies since this is kinda tricky. Anyway, I found it and it is solved. Cheers. Danko.

Sorry didn't see this post or I would have helped. Did see the black text in your theme thumbnail's menu but thought it was just a bad design decision :)

css is very easy and straightforward once you get the hang on it - next time something like this happens just search for your colour (color: #000000;/#000;/black;/rgba(0,0,0,1.0);).
Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!

I did; that's what I spent my whole week in; I searched every way of saying black and found nothing; in fact, the only way I could find the value was by using Meld Diff Viewer and comparing it to two other themes. Anyway, bimbase, worry not about not being of help; this kind of things bring experience and that is a bliss.

Nonetheless, I think that that precise value name should be changed; nothing very wild (that *would* be counter-intuitive) but something like at least text-color instead of just color; in Cinnamon's css files there are a lot of "color" variables that do nothing, so that might have been the reason I overlooked it. Still, the new version of the theme has been uploaded and is pretty usable (don't know about good though); feel free to take a look arround and thanks for the reply even if it was a little late :)

"color:" is always text (or element) colour, background colour is "background-color:"

Really? Then forgive my ignorance; I'm pretty new at editing css files and didn't know that; since it is an accepted convention I will complain no more. You win :)

Then I must be missing something because all I see is a white text box that doesn't react to input of any kind.

Just remove the /#css/ part in the URL and press enter. It will reload the site.

Yeah, apologies, it needs to be: http://dochub.io/

Then for example in the search box enter "color", and you see all the different CSS properties that you can set for color. You can easily discover which one you need, and how to use it, by reading the short explanation or viewing the live examples :wink:

Indeed; it looks nice :) I'll give it a look whenever I'm feeling kind of lost; thank you for the page, Vincent, and thank Tayo for the answer; also, thanks to bimbase for his answer (so many answers considering this topic has been closed for about the last 8 answers :mrgreen:); anyway, I'm glad you guys can be of some help and that I finally figured out how to change the text color. Cheers. Danko.
