    Theme issue (white text on light gray background)

    Using the Albatross theme (a stock theme) on xubuntu 12.04
    please tell me there is a fix for this:

    i think it is a GTK3 issue

    is there a manual option for this or a ppa with a theme fix?

    Yip, me too. I have been trying to find the right configuration file to tweak it manually but the way all the themes inherit from one another makes it very hard to find the right one.

    If someone else knows that would be great.

    Re: Theme issue (white text on light gray background)

    Code:
    dpkg --list | grep "libgtk-3-0"
    if it returns a version number of 3.4 your theme isn't compatible with gtk 3.4. the author of the theme needs to fix it or you can downgrade to gtk+ 3.2 for a temporary fix.

    Thanks llua+,

    It did indeed return 3.4 so I will just have to be patient and wait til it is resolved.

    I attempted to fix it as a workaround until there is an official and proper fix.
    change /usr/share/themes/Albatross/gtk-3.0/gtk-widgets.css and restart, then you should be able to read the stuff again

    Excellent! Thanks so much for providing a solution! Now I am able to read those windows properly.

    Yes, I think it is safe to mark this as solved now.
