Folder font color question

Postby tigerbalm306 on Thu May 16, 2013 2:10 pm

I had a question about changing font colors.
I am currently using Mint 14 KDE and I can change the font color of everything except one.

In the attached picture if you look at the names under the folders or the left hand side the font color is extremely light.
I would like to change this color but I don't know how to do it.
Does anyone know how to change this font? I tried changing all the fonts in the color menu but nothing changed it.

The colour is called "View Text"

Go to System settings, Application Appearance, Colours,
choose the colour tab and find view text.

I made mine blue to show you and a screenshot below
posted at imgmur
You should be able to see folder text changes to blue in
Dolphin.
The "boring" background can also be changed, its called
window background, and affects menu colour and window
background.

I tried your suggestion but it didn't change the font under the folders or the left hand side did not change.
Is it just something wrong with my computer?

No, nothing wrong with your computer, this is something you've altered in KDE.
Start konsole then create a new user:


sudo useradd -m -G hanseul2,adm,cdrom,sudo,dip,plugdev,lpadmin,sambashare -s /bin/bash hanseul2

Above hanseul2 is your new username (which you can change if you want).
Create a password


passwd hanseul2

(then enter a password for the new account).


Log out of KDE and try the new username, which should create a new kde session for the new user account.

I made a new account and the font color was black.
However I'm not able to change it on this account either. It's okay though since I was going to keep it black anyways.

I just had to switch over my home directory to my original one and delete the first account.
Thanks for your help

That ok, if you can just edit the title of yoyr original post and append [solved], saves everyone
reading it again.
The Mint forums have the highest number of posts of any internet forum.
