View Full Version : [SOLVED] Desktop Color inverted

January 28th, 2010, 04:44 PM
Hi guys,

Real stupid thing happened, my little pup was walking on my desk and on the keyboard and changed my whole desktop color to Inverted.

Meaning black is now white and all that. I suspect there is a keyboard shortcut to change the inverted color back to normal CNTRL + Something or Alt _ ??

Anyone know??

Check the theme, maybe that was changed, you could also look through the keyboard shortcuts and find the relevant shortcut.

Checked all "normal" settings, Appearance Settings, Themes colors set to default.. No luck.

Gonna re-login now but I suspect it's saved already as part of my user profile??

Yes, probably it got saved the moment it got changed.

Try pressing Super+M
Thank you! The same thing happened to me when my fingers slipped off the keyboard, and I wasn't sure what I had pressed!

Based on your advice, I held in the "Windows" (Super) key with the "m" key, and my colors were back to normal. Thank Google for getting me here on the first sub-link of the first link. :) (My search was "ubuntu color inversion" without quotes)
