How can I change titlebar font color? Thanks in advance.

So basically I just installed Xubuntu 16.04.02, updated it with any last minute updates, installed compiz and made it the default window manager, installed the Numix circle icons, and i have also installed the Adapta theme in which I'm using the Nokto variant.

And the problem starts here!

Everything went well with the installation of the Adapta theme, a theme i regularly use. But now there's something wrong with it, don't know if it is a bug or something like it...

The color of the font used in the window titlebar used to be a white one or very light gray of some sorts...

But now it is a dark gray, almost matching the color of the titlebar itself, making it almost invisible to the eye.

I have been looking around but couldn't help myself with this issue, seen many other posts and threads but can't relate to.

Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance to everyone.

BTW,

This is what I get from the colors-dark.rc file:

#
# Colour scheme

gtk-color-scheme = "base_color:#455A64\nbg_color:#3E515A"
gtk-color-scheme = "text_color:#ECEFF1\nfg_color:#ECEFF1"
gtk-color-scheme = "selected_bg_color:#00BCD4\nselected_fg_color:#FFFFFF"
gtk-color-scheme = "tooltip_bg_color:#2A373E\ntooltip_fg_color:#ECEFF1"
gtk-color-scheme = "link_color:#03A9F4\nvisited_link_color:#9C27B0"
gtk-color-scheme = "inverted_dark_color:#2A373E\ninverted_fg_color:#ECEFF1"
gtk-color-scheme = "scroll_slider_color:#A5AAAD\nscroll_slider_prelight_color:#C3C6C8"
gtk-color-scheme = "panel_bg_color:#13191C"
gtk-color-scheme = "secondary_dark_color:#3b4c54"
gtk-color-scheme = "solid_white:#FFFFFF"
gtk-color-scheme = "accent_color:#4DB6AC"

Re: How can I change titlebar font color? Thanks in advance.

A couple of ideas, first test without Compiz. It does strange things and may cause issues that are hard to find.

Next check that the theme you have is for the same version of GTK3 that your distro uses. Each new version of GTK3 breaks theme so they need to be updated.

Check out the folder that has your wm theme and then look at the themerc I think it's called.   You can change the color there.
Might be something like
/usr/share/themes/thethemeyouareusing/xfwm4

What version of Compiz are you using? I have .0.8.12.3 installed, but I can't use it because a bug's blocking the title bar and other decorations: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1412437
