I've just installed Ubuntu 10.10. using the gnome desktop.
My eyes are very sensitive to light and I have to be able to change the back ground colors from white to dark in such programs as Nautilus and the different editors. This is the main reason I've used KDE for years, it's been fairly easy to change in KDE.
I have read the help from:
, and on ubuntu and every thing I can find "here" on changing the background colors with no results. I have found posts with my same problem without any answer or solution.
This is what I understand how to change the background colors and what is happening:
I open Nautilus>Edit>Backgrounds and Emblems
I select Patterns>Drag a pattern title to an object to change it
But it don't work. I've tried the same thing with "Colors" and it
I have dragged using right mouse button, middle button, and left button and they don't work.
Please point me to a "how to" or tell me what I need to do in order to make it work? TIA
Solved - I found out on another forum that when you are using the "list view" in Nautilus the background colors can not be changed, only in "compact and icon views" can background colors be changed.
