Change color of desktop-icon text-background


Hello,

I am a LXDE user, and I wish to change the color of the desktop-icon text-background. I found this, below, to put in my .gtkrc-2.0.mine file; but it is written for Xfce and not LXDE. I was hoping to find out what I needed to change to make this tweak work for LXDE's desktop.

I merely need to find out what syntax to change for this .gtkrc-2.0.mine file entry (versus the Xfce version I posted below). I am thinking the “xfdesktop-icon-view” and ”XfdesktopIconView” syntax may be the only part I need to change.

Thank you!

Code:
style "xfdesktop-icon-view" {
    XfdesktopIconView::label-alpha = 75

    base[NORMAL] = "#000000"
    base[SELECTED] = "#000000"
    base[ACTIVE] = "#000000"

    fg[NORMAL] = "#ffffff"
    fg[SELECTED] = "#ffffff"
    fg[ACTIVE] = "#ffffff"
}
widget_class "*XfdesktopIconView*" style "xfdesktop-icon-view"

@BW-userx and anyone who can help

Before I ever posted my question, I set aside a couple of hours, to scan all the usual, dependable sites and Linux tutorials. The desktop icon, text-background tweak is nevertheless alluding me. As a long time SuSE-LXDE user, I have successfully configured about everything I have wished to; it it merely that I changed my GTK theme, and I need to find out what syntax to change for this .gtkrc-2.0.mine file entry (versus the Xfce version I posted above). Via other personal, successful desktop tweaks, in tandem with germane research, I have already been assured that LXDE uses that .gtkrc-2.0.mine file for what I need to accomplish; and it would abundantly helpful for someone to chime in regarding my question.

Thank you!

fg[ACTIVE] = "#ffffff" as that means ForeGround, what do you think they used to indicate BackGround?

That is where I'd start trying to manipulate the colors. Providing you've actually found a config file for LXDE to do the same, and providing that they have coded it to accept the changes within a config file.

If not then you'll have to go deeper into whatever coding Language they used and change it there.
