Hi.  You should be able to change it in the desktop preferences
menu.  Gnome has an accessibility theme that might be what you
want.  If not, you can change colors to what you mike manually.
You get to the desktop preferences from the keyboard by pressing alt-f1
then cursoring down to the desktop preferences option.
I usually press right arrow to open the menu.  Pressing enter on an
item activates the option.

Hope this helps.
