    Desktop Icon Font color change

    Just upgraded to Hardy a couple of weeks ago. I had changed my desktop icon fonts to black using a method posted here. When I decided to change back to white, i.e. #ffffff, it changed the font color in all applications to white. I could not see the fonts in text editor or terminal. I was able to switch back to all black fonts by changing the code to #000000. Is there a way in Hardy to change only the font colors of the desktop icons to white and not screw around with the color of the fonts elsewhere???

    Install Gnome Color Chooser from Synaptic Package Manager. You should be able to do it with that app.

    Once installed from synaptic, how do you access it? I can't find it anywhere.

    Nevermind, I found it.

    Hello, can I use this to change font of the desktop icons? I want them to be smaller. I only found an option to change font in start menu bud not on the desktop. Thanks
