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.
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.
OpenSUSE 11.4 + KDE 4.7.2 from KDF + libreoffice-18.104.22.168-2.3.1.x86_64 (including libreoffice-kde4-22.214.171.124) 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.

It’s interesting that system info doesn’t give me that. I had to open the box to remind myself of the model number. I think I remember my old setup giving me the card info under “my computer”. Solved the problem with LibreOffice but not Digikam. I’ll muck around in that to see if I can find a setting. Thanks again.
Just solved the problem in DIgikam. I think it was because I changed the theme back to “default”. It had been on Oxygen. I did a few other things like change the font used but that didn’t seem to make a difference. Anyway, thanks for all the help.
