How to Change desktop font colors


Hello all,

I just installed a dark theme in ZorinOS 6 and the desktop font apparently uses a font color that is associated with the theme. I am also using a dark background and the font is dark .
I would like to know how to change the color of the font to maybe white.
I am using the Gmone desktop environment.
Thank you

The Zorin group team (responsible for the development of ZorinOS) have a forum that you can consult here.
Also, they have a FAQ section that says that you can use something called Zorin Look Changer to customize your OS.
If that doesn't work for you, please check this link that explains how to do the same thing in Ubuntu-Gnome (it should work in ZorinOS since it's an Ubuntu derivative).
Let us know if this works for you. Have a great day!

gacanepa, thank you so much for the links you provided. I have the Zorin Group forum bookmarked now.
I used the link you provided for the how-to for Ubuntu. It worked like a charm, after I finally figured out what to change.
I now have a nice dark theme with white font colors on the desktop. Dark theme is easier on these old eyes than all the white.-lol
Thank you again.
