Description Victor Tran 2015-05-04 06:58:52 UTC
When setting the 'desktop theme' to 'Breeze Dark', all the icons and plasmoids change theme, but the panel itself doesn't, which makes it a bit hard to see all the icons.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open System Settings > Workspace Theme > Desktop Theme
2. Choose 'Breeze Dark'.

Actual Results:  
The panel icons and plasmoids changed colour, but the panel itself doesn't.

Expected Results:  
The panel should have changed colours as well as the icons.

I've seen this on stock Kubuntu running Plasma 5.2, though it doesn't happen on my dev system.

Original bug at 347473 has 5.2.95 tagged as the version .Is it an issue with 5.3 final?

Please reopen if it's still a problem with Plasma 5.3 and frameowrks 5.10
Comment 3 Victor Tran 2015-05-08 08:24:12 UTC
I just ran a system update, and I think I'm now running Plasma 5.3 with KF 5.9.
The panel still does not change colour.
Comment 4 Victor Tran 2015-05-11 06:23:55 UTC
I just ran another system update, and I'm running KF 5.10.
The panel still does not change colour properly.
Comment 5 Marco Martin 2015-05-12 10:27:47 UTC
some more info, to understand what panel is actually used:
* is desktop composite on?
* if yes, is the blur effect on? (does the background of panel/popups is blurred?)

Comment 7 Victor Tran 2015-05-14 06:13:34 UTC
As far as I know, Desktop Composition is on, and the blur effect is definitely on.
Comment 8 Steven Roose 2015-05-14 21:29:55 UTC
This happens with me on a fresh install of Fedora KDE Spin + update to Plasma 5.

Change the theme, everything becomes invisible...
Comment 9 Rex Dieter 2015-05-14 21:42:06 UTC
Re: comment #8

Can you please test kf5-5.10, which includes the the backported fix referenced above,

In particular, you want kf5-plasma-5.10.0-2
Comment 10 Steven Roose 2015-05-14 21:45:31 UTC
I would very much like to test that, but I'm new to Fedora, so I have no idea :p

I installed Plasma 5 through a repo I found here: https://copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/dvratil/plasma-5/

How can I install kf 5.10?
Comment 11 Rex Dieter 2015-05-15 13:12:58 UTC
re: comment #10

(as root):   yum --enablerepo=updates-testing install kf5-plasma

(then restart your session, either logout/login or reboot)
Comment 12 Steven Roose 2015-05-17 11:54:07 UTC
It worked fine with the bug, thanks!
Comment 13 Victor Tran 2015-05-20 08:06:30 UTC
I think I may have found the root cause of the problem! :D

While testing out a Kubuntu live USB, I turned on Breeze Dark and saw that the panel was themed correctly. Then I turned the 'blur' effect off. Then the panel was coloured white.
Comment 14 Marco Martin 2015-05-20 09:33:56 UTC
so should be fixed by c0c56191db77c0ffc73b63c6c1c7a96c2bb09a67
Comment 15 Rex Dieter 2015-05-20 10:51:58 UTC
I can confirm the committed fix works as advertised (for me), re-closing.

Comment 17 Daniil Vasin 2015-08-07 22:36:03 UTC
After adding an nvidia graphics card and an update, my breeze dark stays light, while changing the icons to white. Please open this bug again, my system is:

 Kubuntu 15.04
KDE 5.3.1
Qt 5.4.1
Kernel 3.19.0-23-generic
Comment 18 David Edmundson 2015-08-07 22:37:36 UTC
The patch above is in frameworks v5.11.0 onwards. What do you have?
Comment 19 Daniil Vasin 2015-08-10 03:12:57 UTC
I see the problem, I'm at KDE Frameworks 5.9, would you by any chance know when there will be a push to 5.11 for kubuntu?
