    Tooltips barely unreadable in Opera 12.02 on Quantal

    Running Opera 12.02 with 12.10 Quantal, tooltips on mouse hover are almost unreadable due to the color scheme.

    The tooltip in this screenshot reads "New tab (Ctrl+T)":



    How do I change the font color of these tooltips?

    Are you using the latest build - Opera 12.02.1629?

    See http://my.opera.com/ruario/blog/index.dml/tag/12.02.

    If you're not running the latest build then you should upgrade. If you are then the bug hasn't been fully fixed and needs to be reported.

    A work around is to change the toolkit that Opera uses by putting opera:config#Dialog%20Toolkit into the address bar and changing the option to 4. After restarting Opera you should find that your tooltips are readable.

    I'm afraid I can't test this for you as I use Kubuntu 12.10 and Lubuntu 12.10 where the problem doesn't exist but the work around should provide a temporary fix. Opera won't be themed correctly but it will be fully usable again.

    I'm running build 1629.

    Not sure though if this is the same issue as described in the blog post and the bug report referenced therein. I'll report it.

    Thanks for pointing out the toolkit option. It's less pretty now, but at least I can read the information.

    Glad to have helped.

    I was running Ubuntu 12.10 for a while and ran into the same problem but wasn't sure exactly what had been fixed in the latest build of Opera 12.02.
