Dark Filename when Thunar is not active

Hi,

i'm not sure this is a problem with thunar or the theme.

Lets say i have 2 windows, thunar and firefox. firefox is the activ window, thunar inactive. when there is a file or folder that is marked the highlight color was grey - now with xfce 4.18 its blue. This makes the file name or folder name nearly unreadable. i have attached 2 screenshots.

xfce 4.16: https://ibb.co/RY1sqCh
xfce 4.18: https://ibb.co/tmLwNm3

Re: Dark Filename when Thunar is not active

This is a theme issue. The following should help:

.thunar .standard-view:backdrop .view:selected { color: white; background-color: red}

...change the colours to suit.

That works.

Is there an overview of all elements i can customize?

What are the colors that are used with xfce 4.16?

Not really but you can reference the GTK3 CSS documentation, Properties documentation and widget-specific information. The other method is to use the GTK Inspector. To use it, first run the following command to enable to shortcut:

gsettings set org.gtk.Settings.Debug enable-inspector-keybinding true

...then with thunar in focus, press Ctrl+Shift+I (capital letter I as in Island) and a dialog will display (similar to the one displayed at the previous link). Click on the "Properties" dropdown and select CSS and browse to your content.

What are the colors that are used with xfce 4.16?

Default upstream Xfce doesn't have any specific colours defined, but it does use the Adwaita theme as default. It's colours are listed here. But if you are using another theme then you will need to look up the colours for that theme.For example, Greybird light colours are defined here.
