UI color bug on dark desktop theme

  • I'm using the Xfce-Dusk gtk theme on my Debian, resulting in some color issues with same font and ground color in the UI.

    Are there known fixes or posted bug reports for this issue?


  • Is this for 12.16 or for the current unstable build?

    With Opera 12.16, the only advice I can offer (besides changing your desktop theme) is to disable desktop integration by setting Dialog Toolkit to 4. Unfortunately the text colors appear to be hard-coded in parts of the UI. If the issue is limited to lists such as the message list in the mail client you can disable the alternating color bars by changing Color List Row Mode to ... I think it was 2, but I'm not completely certain - try 3 if 2 doesn't work. (Both of these are in opera:config.)

    I'm not really familiar enough with 24 yet to offer advice there.

  • Hi, I recently reported an issue for it (DNA-23981).
    In my case it happens in Opera 24, it's been working fine in 12.x

    This is a screenshot of my desktop, comparing Opera12, Opera24 and Chromium:
