Re: background color


 not being one who surrenders without fighting,
here is how to customize your Zim window colors.

1) customize a GTK style
in my Fedora system they are at /usr/share/themes . I chose "Simple"; edit the colors in the gtkrc file, while previewing the theme: I use the gtk-chtheme application

2) to avoid applying this theme to every running GTK app, you have to launch Zim this way: " env GTK2_RC_FILES=/usr/share/themes/Simple/gtk-2.0/gtkrc zim zimbookfile"

3) you will still have clashing colors, specially for links, headers...
    you will set those by editing /root/.config/zim/style.conf
