View Full Version : [ubuntu] High contrast mode has blue background, not black!

April 16th, 2010, 06:27 AM

I have just installed Ubuntu Karmic Koala, and was having great fun by seeing all my laptop hardware supported until I choose the High Contrast modes. It looks nice except for the fact that the background colour is blue, not black.

I am sure the issue will get very well explained by looking at a couple of screenshots that I took:

This is how Firefox looks like using theme colours:


And this is how I want it to look (I got this by overriding system colours in Firefox preferences):

I think is very clear that, at least in my laptop, the High Contrast theme has blue background. The actual intention of the theme's authors was to make it blue? That would be a bit odd since High Contrast usually means while font on black background.

Please let me know if there is a way to get the black background I want (I tried to customize the colours of the theme, but it seems that option is not available for High Contrast).

Thanks a lot and long life to Ubuntu.
