I have Ubuntu 12.04, Unity 2D desktop, installed from scratch. The colors between the draggable title bar and the not-draggable menu bar are the same, as are the colors of the active and inactive window title bars -- all the same dark color.
Here are a couple of links and I must apologize for not being on top of my question and a long-standing request for clarification.
I originally had the default image, removed it and set the background to dark, so this white lettering in the icon titles made sense. That change was made under Settings > Appearance.
In the last day or so, I added an image from off the Internet and matched the background colors in Appearance to be the same as those of the image (using the Gimp Color Picker tool to get a reading of the color value from the image).
This white text was OK on a dark background, but even when I selected Radiance theme, the colors remained white. Before I switched to the Radiance theme, I had already changed the background colors to match the image, but the color of the text was still white.
I reverted to the default theme with its dark menu and title bars to make these images.
Not the most joyous experience. What are my options for resolving these color issues?
Running Ubuntu on a Pentium 4 2.8GHz with 1.2 GB RAM, with apparently not enough power to run other than 2D.
