I use cinnamon mint 17.1, and I found that the window title font color is difficult to distinguish from the background. I know that the theme can be changed from the control option under theme but I like this one and would like to know how to tweak it. I found the files under /usr/share/themes/Adwaita and simply changed wherever I saw color but nothing seemed to change so posting it here.
The gtk3.0 has few files like gtk.css and gtk-dark.css but they just contain these two lines respectively.
@import url("resource:///org/gnome/adwaita/gtk-main-dark.css");
@import url("resource:///org/gnome/adwaita/gtk-main-dark.css");
So how to go about modifying them? Thank you.

  • That's because the theme is a binary file - you'll have to hack it and maintain your own, customized version, see my post here and the guide I linked to – don_crissti Jul 2 '17 at 22:01
  • That works for cinnamon? – Nobody Jul 3 '17 at 1:21
  • No idea, I don't use cinnamon...It should work, it's a gnome fork after all... – don_crissti Jul 3 '17 at 9:54
