Now, my question:
I am using XFCE and after the 03/07/19 update I noticed that my panel now shows a little black circle when I have more than one window of the same program running (e.g., Firefox). After changing the appearance of my desktop with dark themes I noticed that the little back circle in fact shows a number inside with the amount of windows open. When I use light themes the circle has dark grey background and the number inside is black! When I use dark themes (any one works) the circle has white background and black number.

Does anybody know how to change those colours, so I can see the numbers within the circle when using Light themes?


EDIT: Solved in the 2019-07-09 update.

It is your theme/icons that's faulty. Matcha-dark-azul and my custom theme are working fine. Tried with papirus-dark-icons and korla-icons. I see a white ball with black number even with dark theme.
Are your qt5ct-settings correct ?

btw: - I don't use kvantum -

Hi @banjo.

Thank you for your interest in solving my problem.

Yes, I also can see the number in the circle with dark themes, but my problem is with light themes. If you want to try the same I am using now: currently I have Adwaita as the chosen style and Papirus-Light-Maia as icons set.

My qt5ct-settings are completely different from what I am seeing right now. I am wondering now which programs are affected by those settings. Everything I am seeing is following what is set by xfce4-appearance-settings.

I will research more the influence of qt5ct on my desktop appearance.

Thank you for your help.

You are right, Adwaita is faulty. I misread your first post. thought you had problems with dark themes.
