How may I edit the text color of a Launchy skin?

Thanks for taking a look at this thread.


I have installed this Launchy skin: AACE TT+Launchy by requestedRerun on deviantART


The image shows the text color to be white but I see only black on mine. Is there a simple way to change the text color, perhaps to orange? Thanks for any help you can give


Launchy download: http://www.launchy.net/ ( i am using stable version)

Inside the aced launchy skin folder there is a style.qss file I used Notepad ++ to open it and changed the #636363 to white and it changed the text that is typed in to white.
See screenshots.

Glad I could help, I'm not getting any black text, is this the area you talking about in the drop-down box?

I took some other informational text from a different style.qss and then modified it to get the orange text color.

Replace your style.qss with the one in the zip folder at the bottom of this post.

hey, Bongo, is it possible to change the little logo, or better yet maybe remove it entirely from this skin?

Are you talking about the little green logo on the right side?

If so the answer would be yes you would need to edit the images in the skin folder.
