I installed pclinuxos-enlightenment.2010.12 and have been playing with it. One of the first things I did was change the theme since the default, though very nice, is too dark and monochrome for me to use comfortably.
So I installed A-special-one whatever, the previous theme. Quick and easy, but I was very disappointed to see that file managers, Dolphin or Konqueror, are still dark themed with light type on a dark background. So too is Konsole.
I searched the forum for solutions but was disappointed. There doesn't seem to be a real fix for this. One poster mentioned that Nautilus allows the background to be changed, so I installed Nautilus to try it. I had to launch it from the command line.
This was really interesting. I could not change the Nautilus background but I got (as a bonus?) x-nautilus-desktop! Another desktop (with a fully
working Trash, i.e., one I can drag & drop files to). I wasn't expecting this.
In any event, I still have not found a way to get better than the default view monochrome file manager.
E17 is supposed to be endlessly configurable. How do I get a better color scheme for Konqueror?
