Thread: Dark, unreadable popup menus in digikam and libre office.

  1. #1

    Default Dark, unreadable popup menus in digikam and libre office.

    Hello everyone,

    I have a problem with some of the menus in digikam and libre office. For example, when I mouse over a picture when viewing albums in digikam a menu pops up. It contains things like file properties, photograph properties and digikam properties. I can read the titles of the various parts of the menu. However the rest is dark lettering on slightly less dark background and is unreadable. When I mouse over the menu icons in the menu bar in libre office I get the same thing. It's unreadable. The fact it happens in two programs makes me think it's a kde thing, but I don't know. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    Hello Caf496,

    Yes, that's exactly what happens. I'll see if I can upload a screen shot of the effect in Digikam. I'm actually not sure there's text in Office, but there is for sure in Digikam. But I think there is probably text in Office. It's just the same dark colour as the background and thus invisible. It wouldn't make sense for it to do that otherwise. Thanks again.

    It could be down to kde4.7.2?

    OpenSUSE 11.4 + KDE 4.7.2 from KDF + libreoffice-3.4.2.6-2.3.1.x86_64 (including libreoffice-kde4-3.4.2.6) and no issues. Check the themes you use. I use the Air theme for plasma and oxygen for windeco. Or maybe it's some "make gtk apps look like qt"-app bug.

    no, i was just supplying an old foggy, stable, reliable, dependable data
    point ;-)

    actually, i think it is more likely a flaky video driver...._maybe_ with
    4.7 only, but maybe also with KDE3!!!

    any rate, there probably needs to be a bug raised (with all possible
    hardware/software used)....and, let the devs find the corner..

    I tried all that
    In any case, it shouldn't matter.
