Mint updater description / included packages font color

Post by mintefrsh » Mon Mar 05, 2018 1:45 am

I searched a long time for this one. In Mint 18.1, a mildly modified Mint-X-Aqua theme, the font for DESCRIPTIONS of updates & the INCLUDED packages, are too close in color to the background & pretty small. I'd like to darken them & make slightly larger.

Also, the DESCRIPTION font color of SELECTED / highlighted updates doesn't switch to white, like the update names & version #'s do. I can take or leave the italics.

I found a line in /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintUpdate/, on line 1320, that I guessed might be related, as there isn't a lot of italic text. I edited the italic style out, but the updater wouldn't start after reboot - not even from manual launch.

self.buffer.create_tag("dimmed", scale=0.9, foreground="%s" % insensitive_color, style=Pango.Style.ITALIC)

Anyone know where the font color & size of these 2 places is controlled?
I assume the updater UI uses GTK-3?
