    Default YaST Style - Unwanted

    So I installed a few Window Managers and Desktops to see how I like them. After uninstalling most of it I notice I now have this black background to the details of packages in YaST (see image). Anybody know how I can revert back to a white background?



    openSUSE 12.1
    Gnome 3.2.1

    Sounds like
    After uninstalling most of it

    Might be something to do with it

    My guess is you'll end up re-installing with only the Desktop you have
    established as your favoured choice

    probably that will fix the problem..

    but, the OP might _try_ opening YaST > Software management then search
    on 'yast' and in the long list of YaST pieces which show up on the right
    mark the following packages to "update" (do that by right clicking, and
    then selecting "Update" and the icon will change to a small green arrow):

    yast2
    yast2-control-center


    WELL! the OP didn't say what desktop was kept so i don't know which of
    these _should_ be refreshed and which should either not be refreshed or
    _maybe_ should be deleted:

    yast2-qt
    yast2-qt-graph
    yast2-qt-pkg
    yast2-control-center-gnome
    yast2-control-center-qt
    yast2-gtk

    here is the deal: 'qt' is the graphical basis for KDE and gt for
    Gnome....and, i _think_ gt is also for LXDE....for Xfce i have no idea..

    please note: any of the above might either fix the OP's YaST or make it
    totally unusable...read my sig's caveat prior to proceeding.

    of course, i know there is a good backup of the way the system stood
    right after initial install when everything worked great! so, it is
    always easy to go back to that with a quick restore!!

    then you could *try* refreshing the gnome/gt bits of yast, it may
    work...it may not..

    please let us know how you get on..

    Re-installing yast2 and yast2-control-center made no change. Would it be unwise to remove the kde/YaST (qt) stuff?

    I was suspecting that as well. I have yast2-theme-openSUSE and yast2-theme-openSUSE-Oxygeninstalled. Would it hurt to uninstall either/both of them?
