    Bluefish was messed up by the recent update to Ubuntu 12.04

    Hi again!

    Updating to Ubuntu 12.04 was almost without incident. OpenOffice and a few other applications forgot my "recent files" lists.

    The only significant problem is making Bluefish look nice.

    (Bluefish used to require setting colors for each aspect of HTML code, as I blogged here. Now it first asks for "text styles" and then each programming language refers to those. Thus I can define the text style of comment and simply have all my programming languages use that text style instead of repeatedly defining what a comment should look like for each individual language. Nice! But new work to do.)

    My problem is simple: no matter what colors I pick for foreground and background (in menu Edit -> Preferences and then sidebar Editor Settings -> Font & Colors) I cannot see what text blocks I select with the cursor. The "highlighting" with the cursor only makes the foreground change to the default foreground color. This is barely noticeable when I happen to select a colored HTML tag, and invisible when I select plain text!

    Thanks for any help!

    UPDATE: I should add the default colors DO work after I rename the .bluefish directory in my home directory. But as soon as I change the background color, that cursor-highlighting issue returns!

    UPDATE 2: Well, I can use Compiz to enable Accessability -> Negative and do my typing with an easy on the eyes color scheme that way. So problem is not solved, but a workaround is easy.
