[Solved] Font color issue with dark gtk3 theme

Postby gimmeapill » Wed May 11, 2016 9:34 pm

I should have reported this before, but needed to double check first my config.
The white background in the preset list is apparently ruinning it with a dark gtk theme.

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2beUW7nf-nkZzV2WE10ZDJORjg

The only thing specific I could find is my .config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini:
Code: Select all
[Settings]
gtk-theme-name=Adwaita
gtk-fallback-icon-theme=gnome
gtk-application-prefer-dark-theme=1
gtk-font-name=Sans 10


Changing the GX theme doesn't seem to affect the preset list.
Is there any way to override that white background and make thing more lisible?

Hi

Which DE do you use? Is it KDE4?

Keep in mind that guitarix is gtk2, not gtk3.

No DE, just Fluxbox as WM + a few Gnome, Gtk & Qt applications.
I have no particular setting for gtk2 - and other gtk2 applications like gparted look ok

You should install at least the gtk2 clearlooks engine.

Well, I've installed openbox, here is a screen-shot of mine:

Ah, shit, you mean Fluxbox, not openbox, . . .

Thanks for checking. It's very likely that I miss clearlooks as I'm always running light on dependencies.
Will try that this evening an report back. I'm also maintaining an Arch pkgbuild so it should probably be added to the list of dependencies.

Nope, it's something else, but probably has to do with my local .gtk2rc.
I made a quick test with Mate Desktop (which overrides ~.gtk2rc with its own settings) and everything looks fine.
If I go back to Fluxbox, the background of most buttons + preset list is white again. Installing the gtk2 themes doesn't help.
My .gtk2rc seems to be valid - I tried to edit it with a helper application (to be sure all settings were ok) and other gtk2 applications follow the settings. I'll investigate further this evening.

Hi

I've recently upgraded my debian/sid, and get the same problem with the preset list under cinnamon desktop.
For that, I found a solution now , which I've committed to git.

I've added the following to the guitarix rc file
Code: Select all
    GtkTreeView::even-row-color = "#000000"
    GtkTreeView::odd-row-color  = "#000000"


where only the even-row-color work (but I leaf the odd-row-color there, maybe that get fixed one day by the gtk dev's.

before the system update, the colour was set by the base colour, which now didn't work any more.

Good news ;-)
I didn't have much time to test again, but since Arch is usually a bit ahead of Debian Testing/Unstable with the package versions that's not too surprising.
I'll confirm back if the fix works next week as I'm out of town this WE

Cheers,

LX
