Changing system font color/colour

Post by uberprutser »

Hi, I just installed GhostBSD on a Windows VirtualBox. Just to try things out, before I install it on, what basically is a piece of eWaste :)
(Lenovo Ideapad - n3150 Celeron/4GB Ram/128GB HD)
As a complete BSD noob, I got most things running to my liking. But I have not been able to figure out, how I can change the system font to a pure black color/colour. Instead of the dark gray default. I expected to configure this using the "appearances preferences" program. Either, I can't figure this out or it's not possible. Anyway, I like what I'm seeing, and I'm hoping GhostBSD will run better than Debian 12 on my eWaste laptop :)

When bootstrapping the system or when at the system console?

I'm using MATE, because I assume that's what most people will use. On linux I prefer using xFce. Although I'm more of a windows user. But that love is dwindling :) And it's the fonts, used in the desktop I would like to change to pure black.

Hello,
As per me the theme folder in /usr/share or themes, open the gtk.css file in your current theme's folder, and add or modify the line . Save the file and restart your system or log out and back in to apply the changes.
Thanks
