i compiled one pd-extended on gentoo as well, following
and found # color scheme section, was able to change canvas_fill,
text_color .. etc, but there was no set canvas_fill "white" line.
I tried to add that line but did not seem to do anything.
There was couple of postings where pd users demanded pd with reversed
colors, or at least darker background for using on stage and not getting
blinded. I am wandering if enybody found easy way how to configure this?
