I have installed nemo in Ubuntu 14.04 from www.webupd8.org/2013/10/install-nemo-with-unity-patches-and.html, and it worked fine. Today I rebooted my computer and I found my desktop icons with dark labels, like this:
instead of light labels like the ones drawed by nautilus:
I don't know what messed nemo's label, but I think it may be related to gtk: I messed a little with gtk libraries (in particular python-gtk2-dev and pygtk) before rebooting, to solve some problems with matplotlib in pylab. I also updated my packages and edited the grub option:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=legacy"
to solve some luminosity issues, but then I changed back to "quiet splash" (it did not solved anything). I may also tweaked something in ccsm, but I don't recall what.
In short, I messed around, and I don't know what caused this problem.
How can I change back the colour of the labels?
