Change desktop selection color in Lubuntu


Hi, sorry about this noob question.
I have got Lubuntu 18.04 and dont like the color of the desktop drag selection box, i have customized almost all other colors but just cant find any way to change that.

Thanks,
Eric.

i assume you could not change it from the desktop settings gui?

there are some tricks to change it via ~/.gtkrc-2.0.mine, but it's been a long time since i used this...

otoh, does the colour change when you use a different GTK theme?

Thanks for replying. I have looked in the settings GUI and it is not there, and it doesn't change when i use a different GTK theme.
I'm on windows now but when i next boot Lubuntu i'll have a look at ~/.gtkrc-2.0.mine and give an update.
Thanks,
Eric.
