Before you start
On Ubuntu Quantal, this will install fglrx/Catalyst 9.000, which is roughly equivalent to Catalyst 12-9. NOTE: You must have the restricted repository enabled in Applications -> Software Sources... for this to work. After you complete the install, skip to [[Ubuntu_Quantal_Installation_Guide#Generate_a_new_.2Fetc.2FX11.2Fxorg.conf_file|Generate a new /etc/X11/xorg.conf file]].
Hi Elyse,Like the look!Caution: moderate techy coentnt ahead The font color, size and other attributes will be found in the css file of the theme you are using. I use a web development add-on to firefox (called firebug) that allows me to examine my web pages and see how they are set up so I know what to change to make desired modifications. It will even allow you to change settings as a preview of what it would look like if you actually changed the code.The === Command line in the css that controls that stuff is ===  h1.artsudo apt-logo-name, h1.art-logo-name a, h1.art-logoget install linux-name a:link, h1.artsource fglrx fglrx-logo-name a:visited, h1.art-logo-name a:hover The color is currently set to #52315D . You can change it using either standard colors (i.e. white ) or with hex color codes like it is now. The line that sets the color for the subtitle text is just below it: .art-logo-text, .art-logo-text a However, I changed the title text to several different colors to see what it would look like, and they all conflict with the background image. White conflicts with the folders in the photo. You could make the text smaller so that it doesn't extend into the folders, or you could also eliminate the text from the page, and just add it to the photo if you are fluent in photoshop or another graphics program. I often add a drop shadow or other effect if I can't get the text to stand out against the background.Chris Staatsb4s last [type] ..amdcccle
