desktop icons

Postby pabloro65 » 20 Dec 2016 12:39

I want to change the shadows and color of the letters in the desktop icons, in solydx 32 bits, using .gtkrc-2.0, but when restarting the pc, the changes are not applied, how should I do it? :(

I used the following link to change my (stable) SolydX 32-bit desktop icons:
https://forums.solydxk.com/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=4019

Accordingly, my two relevant files are now as follows:

Code: Select all

roger@dino:~$ cat .gtkrc-2.0
include ".gtkrc-xfce"

Code: Select all

roger@dino:~$ cat .gtkrc-xfce
#Orig...
#style "xfdesktop-icon-view" {
#    XfdesktopIconView::label-alpha = 0
#
#    fg[NORMAL] = "#000000"
#    fg[SELECTED] = "#000000"
#    fg[ACTIVE] = "#000000"
#}
#widget_class "*XfdesktopIconView*" style "xfdesktop-icon-view"
#
#
#New...
style "xfdesktop-icon-view" {
  ## opacity of text background (0 - 255, 0 = transparent)
  XfdesktopIconView::label-alpha = 0
  XfdesktopIconView::selected-label-alpha = 100

  ## text background colors
  base[NORMAL]    = "#EDECEB"
  base[ACTIVE]    = shade (0.8, "#86ABD9")
  base[SELECTED]  = "#86ABD9"

  ## text foreground colors
  fg[NORMAL]      = shade (0.9, "#FFFFFF")
  fg[ACTIVE]      = shade (0.8, "#FFFFFF")
  fg[SELECTED]    = "#FFFFFF"

  ## whether or not unselected icon text gets truncated (...)
  # XfdesktopIconVIew::ellipsize-icon-labels = 1

  ## text shadow to be painted with the icon labels
  XfdesktopIconView::shadow-x-offset = 1
  XfdesktopIconView::shadow-y-offset = 1
  XfdesktopIconView::shadow-color = "#000000"
  XfdesktopIconView::selected-shadow-x-offset = 1
  XfdesktopIconView::selected-shadow-y-offset = 1
  XfdesktopIconView::selected-shadow-color = "#000000"

  ## spacing and sizing of icons on the grid
  # XfdesktopIconVIew::cell-spacing = 6
  # XfdesktopIconView::cell-padding = 6
  # XfdesktopIconView::cell-text-width-proportion = 2.5
}
widget_class "*XfdesktopIconView*" style "xfdesktop-icon-view"
However, as you posted this question in the "Testing zone", I guess you are using EE. If this is the case, and the above does not work, then I would think this is specifically an EE/Testing problem and so, regrettably, I doubt I could help much further.
