xfdesktop-icon-view


Slackware is doing it right!! What I mean is that white background for the desktop icons - makes it possible to see the name of the icon easily, no matter what background on your screen. Other distros using xfce don't always do this - but mostly I can edit the '~/.gtkrc-xfce'-file.
This file does not exist in Slackware - so my question is:

Where is this set (in Slackware)??

The ~/.gtkrc-xfce file (unedited) looks like this:
Code:
style "xfdesktop-icon-view" {
    XfdesktopIconView::label-alpha = 0
    fg[NORMAL] = "#000000"
    fg[SELECTED] = "#000000"
    fg[ACTIVE] = "#000000"
}
widget_class "*XfdesktopIconView*" style "xfdesktop-icon-view"
After I have edited it:
Code:
style "xfdesktop-icon-view" {
    XfdesktopIconView::label-alpha = 90
    base[NORMAL] = "#ffffff"
    base[SELECTED] = "#ffffff"
    base[ACTIVE] = "#ffffff"
    fg[NORMAL] = "#000000"
    fg[SELECTED] = "#000000"
    fg[ACTIVE] = "#000000"
}
widget_class "*XfdesktopIconView*" style "xfdesktop-icon-view"
I have grepped for 'xfdesktop-icon-view' in all of /etc and /usr/share/{xfce4,xfwm4} and no dice!

I think you have to edit ~/.gtkrc-2.0

That file does not exist in my home directory - so it must be set somewhere - but where??

You should edit the gtk-2.0/gtkrc file of your current theme to achieve that.

I don't think so - this is a desktop property rather than a theme property (and yes, I grepped all the files under /usr/share/themes for 'xfdesktop-icon' without a hit).
Also tried all the files under /usr/share - still no hit
