ive been searching for a while now, and have found a few people with this problem but non of their fixes seem to work for me.

The menus and complete GUI in openoffice is unreadable, actually no text is visible, except a few very quick moments when you scan the mouse over the menus.

This came about directly after installing a popular gnome theme from gnome-look called Dust.

I am using Ubuntu 8.10, i have tried uninstalling Oo, reinstalling, and even tried Oo 3.0. Nothing is working.

Thanks in advance for your help.

What is your graphic card aaronmcconkey?

Perhaps it has something to do with it like here:

If you are using nvidia card, it is nvidia driver bug.I dont know which version fixes it (yes one version fixes it :) ), do a little search on the forums
