    Default white text and background for selections in chromium

    I can't see anything when selecting text because the background and font color are white.
    I haven't been able to locate the proper settings to change this.

    Tumbleweed 20160920
    LXQt 0.10.0 - kwin
    Chromium 53.0.2785.116 (64-bit)

    I do not know about Chromium 53.0.2785.116 and LXQt, but with Chromium-53.0.2785.113 (because 116 seemed broken) and Plasma-5 :--

    I get the behaviour you describe if I select the “GTK+” theme in
    Chromium settings. Using the “Classic” theme all is well. Chromium has to be restarted for the recovery to take effect. I tried changing the GTK themes in “System Settings”, but to no avail.
    ~Thank you for sharing an interesting problem.

    But I like the GTK+ theme......

    BTW, it does not seem to affect other applications, so it looks like it may be a problem with how Chromium interprets the GTK theme.

    I got the same problem.

    I can fix this problem by changing the GTK theme to Adawaita In openSUSE 13.2 with Chromium 53 and 54.

    But, in Tumbleweed, no matter what theme I choose, the problem still there.
