    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

    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[/B] > *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.

    [B]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'
    (http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=53118) ) 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".)


    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.
