File browser fonts and colours

I find the file browser very hard to read on the small LCD of the Ixus 100IS, both because of font size and background colour :blink: I can make the main menus look beautiful by setting fonts and colours 8) but nothing I try has any effect on the file browser.

Any way I can fix this? Am I missing something? Thanks!

Using ixus100_sd780-100c-0.9.9-913_BETA.zip

I believe the file browser always uses the system font and that it's colors are hard coded in core/gui_fselect.c and cannot be changed unless you are up to modifying the source code and recompiling it. Experimenting with different colors shouldn't be overly difficult, changing the font probably much more so.

Thanks - that's what I suspected. In fact for me the lack of contrast between the foreground and background is probably the main problem. Perhaps I will see if the developer is willing to change it in the next release. :blink:

I find the OSD font too small for my eyes to read comfortably and I want to increase the size of the system font.
In core/gui_fselect, which are the right bits to edit?
These?- //-------------------------------------------------------------------
