Thunar background image help (SOLVED)

Hi all i have been trying to add a background image to thunar and successful did it but i have a problem, the image also appears on the icon labels, this is the code im using:

.thunar .standard-view .view {
          background-image: -gtk-scaled(url("backimage.jpg"), url("backimage@2.jpg"));
          background-repeat: no-repeat;
          background-position: bottom right;
          background-size: cover;

and as you can see in this screenshot it replicates the image on the text labels for every file and folder:


how can i fix this so that the image doesn't appear on the text label of folder and items?

Re: Thunar background image help (SOLVED)

Hello and welcome.

It gets unclear what happens below the .view level as only "widget' is defined. However, if you add the following two lines after your snippet above:

.thunar .standard-view .view * { background-image: none; }
.thunar .standard-view .view * { background: transparent; color: white; }

...it seems to work. The first line sets the image to none and the second to transparent with white foreground.
