GNOME's color schemes are editable easily via the ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file, but the GNOME color chooser makes this process easier and graphical.
+
 
+
==Installation==
+
 
+
Install [https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=7285 gnome-color-chooser] from the [[AUR]].
+
 
+
==Tips and Tricks==
+
 
+
This should be an outline of what each of the fields affect, determined by trial-and-error. Know that this affects the local user's setup and thus this will likely override the related default configurations set by files earlier in the preference list (i.e. /usr/share/ or /etc/).
+
 
+
===Global===
+
  These affect all programs (hence global) that use the current coloring scheme via the GTK interface.
+
 
+
====Default Normal====
+
These affect standard items that are click and choose or are entirely static.
+
 
+
'''normal''': ''foreground'' = standard text; i.e. font color of "Default Configuration"
+
 
+
'''normal''': ''background'' = area surrounding standard text; i.e. background color surrounding all the buttons and standard text
+
 
+
'''hover''': ''foreground'' = text of selectable items when hovering; i.e. font color of visible drop down menu item, date and time font color during hover
+
 
+
'''hover''': ''background'' = background of selectable items when hovering; i.e. drop down menus prior to clicking
+
 
+
'''selected''': ''foreground'' = Unknown
+
 
+
'''selected''': ''background'' = color of items indicating currently active area; i.e. scrollbars, tab covers
+
 
+
'''active''': ''forground'' = text of selectable items that are available (as opposed to the selected item); i.e. not currently selected tabs
+
 
+
'''active''': ''background'' = background of selectable items that are available (as opposed to the selected item); i.e. not currently selected tabs
+
 
+
'''disabled''': ''foreground'' = text of not selectable items; i.e. typically grayed out selectable items
+
 
+
'''disabled''': ''background'' = background of not selectable items; i.e. typically grayed out selectable items
+
 
+
====Default Entry Fields====
+
These affect areas that require user input.
+
 
+
'''normal''': ''foreground'' = fonts/items placed in user input fields; i.e. color of checks in checkboxes, text color in drop-down menu widgets
+
 
+
'''normal''': ''background'' = area of the entry field; i.e. background color contained in text boxes, check boxes, etc.
+
 
+
'''hover''': ''foreground'' = text of selectable input items when hovering; i.e. drop down menu font items during selection
+
 
+
'''hover''': ''background'' = Unknown
+
 
+
'''selected''': ''foreground'' = text of currently user-selected item(s); i.e. font of currently selected file in a browser window
+
 
+
'''selected''': ''background'' = background of currently user-selected item(s); i.e. highlight of currently selected file in a browser window
+
 
+
'''active''': ''forground'' = text of selectable items that are available (as opposed to the selected item); i.e. not currently items in a browser window
+
 
+
'''active''': ''background'' = background of selectable items that are available (as opposed to the selected item); i.e. not currently selected items in a browser window
+
 
+
'''disabled''': ''foreground'' = text of unavailable user input fields; i.e. unchangeable text box font
+
 
+
'''disabled''': ''background'' = background of unavailable user input fields; i.e. unchangeable text box background
+
 
+
===Buttons===
+
These affect the button widgets that are used, such as the standard "Close" and "Apply" buttons as well drop down lists.
+
 
+
====Buttons====
+
The buttons akin to "Close" and "Apply", the "Go" and "Search" buttons on the left of this page
+
 
+
====Comboboxes====
+
The visible drop-down menu item.
+
 
+
===Panel===
+
These affect the items in panels that are used by the system (note, not just gnome-panel, but any panels that use the .gtkrc-2.0 file)
+
 
+
====Panel====
+
These affect standard panel, such as the gnome-panel
+
 
+
====Start Menu====
+
These affect the Main GNOME Menu, and imaginably other primary menus
+
 
+
===Desktop===
+
These affect the items on the desktop (i.e. the "Computer" icon)
+
 
+
===Specific===
+
 
+
====Window Decoration====
+
These affect the coloring of the window title bars when using the GTK window decorator
+
 
+
====Scrollbars====
+
These affect the scrollbars used in the GTK applications, such as to the right of this text.
+
 
+
====Progress Bars====
+
Purportedly, these affect the progress bars used in GTK applications, though none come to mind. Likely requires the GTK window decorator.
+
 
+
====Tooltips====
+
Likely requires the GTK window decorator, changes the tooltop colors.
+
 
+
====Links====
+
Likely requires the GTK window decorator, imaginably changes link colors.
+
 
+
===Icons===
+
Allow you to change icon sizes, as of the time of this writing.
+
 
+
===Engines===
+
Advanced: (presumably) Allows you to select "engines" for each subset.
