Thread: icon text

  1. #1

    Default icon text

    I am currently using KDE 3.5 and SuSE 11.0. I have a tiled background picture that has a lot of white in it and the standard text under the icons are white. Now you know what I am going to ask, how can I change the icon text to something that I can see?? PLEASE

    save starting a new thread!

    I am running SuSE 11.1, 64 bit version and using KDE 4.1.2 with a custom background, my icons are fine but my text is only one colour and that is not easy to see! How do I change the colours, back and foreground, on the text under the icons!

    Can't say it's flawless.. but I did get my text color to change... along wit the text color on the taskbar...

    Configure Desktop > Advanced Tab > Desktop Theme Details
    Select the theme you're using in the upperleft combobox, then under color scheme (in the middle) select something different then the one you're using.

    Rightclick on the desktop > Appearance Settings > Select Customize and apply.
    If you've already set it to customized set it to something else first, apply, set it back to customized, apply.

    Think picking a different wallpaper will give more satisfying results

    In KDE 3.5 there is a control center extension module called desktoptext-config (see Desktop Text Config KDE-Apps.org ) that...

    ... gathers in one place all available settings for the desktop icons texts: Font, colors and shadow.
    (It extends and is meant to replace "TextShadowEdit".)
    Version 0.3-12.1-x86_64 works fine in KDE 3.5.9 / OS 11.0. Couldn't live without it

    Sorry guys I should have explained myself better, what I want to do is to change the text colour and have a background under the icon text which is on a background picture!

    I am using Suse 11.1 64 bit and KDE 4.2

    Something like windows 95? A black bar behind the icon text...

    Still the same applies. In control center desktop texts module just uncheck text shadows and choose text and background colors.
