Description Fabian 2012-12-22 20:39:05 UTC
In the main menu, where one selects the lesson, the text is unfortunately nearly readable with some coulor schemes, as the text colour appears to be hardcoded to white, as shown in the attached picture.

Reproducible: Always

Comment 2 Sebastian Gottfried 2012-12-23 10:12:09 UTC
No, the text color isn't hardcoded. To me it looks like a conflict between Oxygen widget background color and your Plasma Theme's text foreground color. But there is clearly a problem, I will look into it.
Comment 3 Sebastian Gottfried 2012-12-23 10:42:40 UTC
Can you please specify:
 - the Plasma Theme you use
 - the widget style and color theme you use?
Comment 4 Fabian 2012-12-23 11:29:44 UTC
My plasma theme style is a user defined mesh-up of others, but I can reproduce this with e.g. Oxygen, Slim Glow and Produkt. The colour theme is gentle, but I can get similiar results with the "Standard" theme. The widget style is oxygen.

fix appearance of application with light-on-dark themes

In the most cases relying on theme colors instead of
fixed colors was enough, and in a few more cases for
elements with fixed background the opposite was right way
to achieve a good-looking result.

Most tricky proved to be the application background. I didn't
want to give up the Oxygen-provided background to ensure visual
consistency with the window decoration. Therefore I use Plasma's
background color but set the alpha accoardingly to the difference
between the two, if the colors are pretty similar the alpha is
