hello, ive been having problems when i changed my text color. Of the entire desktop text getting messed up and or disappearing. Im not quite sure what to do, im on opensuse 11 and all i did was change the font color in appearence cuz im new and cant figure out themes.

You can always revert back to the default settings by clicking “Defaults” at the bottom of Appearance window (in your case, Appearance -> Colors).
