    KDE System Settings → Appearance → Colors → Scheme – for example “openSUSE” – “mouse over” – the “pencil” icon to the left of the rubbish bin icon – edit the text colour …

    I'm open to correction here but IIRC it's determined by the plasma theme itself rather than the user colour scheme.

    Perhaps take a look at: https://develop.kde.org/docs/plasma/theme/quickstart/

    You have to save your new colour scheme «with a new name» before it becomes effective.
    • Then, you have to select and apply your new colour scheme to activate it.

    See the section “Testing” in the document indicated by tannington.
