    GTK3 color around text in themes

    I edited some good themes available on net but I am not able to remove the color around texts in menus and buttons.

    It works perfectly well in firefox,chrome,synaptic etc

    Someone who is good in gtk3 please help

    Could you put up two images illustrating only what you have and what you want to have? In other words, don't put up full-screen images because then it isn't clear what the focus should be on.
    Also, specify the theme involved and the origin of the image and the distro. Some themes work well with one distro but look ugly with another.

    My guess is that the theme you're using relies on images to theme buttons. There are other themes that do the same using css (gradients, shadows, etc). If your theme is indeed using images, you'll have to edit the images after identifying which is which. They may have names like:

    Code:
    [02:09 PM] ~/.themes/DAY/gtk-2.0/images $ ls -l
    total 304

    I'm afraid I won't be of more help because my free time is taken up with tweaking the theme I'm currently using with Lubuntu 12.10. I hope someone else can suggest something for you.
