XCFE Toolbar Font Color Change?

Postby Ronny49 » Tue Jul 21, 2009 3:22 pm

Does anyone know how to change the font color in the main toolbar?

I changed the color of the toolbar itself to a dark grey transparent and
now the black text needs to be changed to a soft white.

I did a few searches with nothing coming back.

Any help will be appreciated!

I believe the only way to do that is know how to edit a theme:

xfce has always been designed to be a lighterweight desktop environment. It uses considerably less RAM and boots quicker than does KDE. xfce basically provides a very useful, still tunable desktop for older computers or for those who don't like too many bells and whistles.

If you want the bells and whistles go KDE. Your choice. That is what Linux is all about - lots of choice. And anyways the font color is tunable as shown at the link I provided you, it is just that you have to do it via a text editor rather than a GUI.
