Description

Darktable 1.4.6 was ok. After installing 2.0.0 the buttons and text areas where all green and the text inside was white making it barely readable. See attached screenshot

After some reserch and help from the irc channel, I figured out that Darktable 2.0 was affected by custom gtk-theme-config settings.

In gtk-theme-config, Custom highlight colors was set to "on" and a highlight background was defined( hex #8ae234) and a hightlight text was defined(hex #ffffff), custom panel colors and custom menu color were set to off.

That seems to be XFCE specific? Can't I just edit some config file?

there might be a file but IDK which. I am running unity and not xfce and I was able to install the tool and modify the config. Give it a try.

Ok, seems to "work". I'll have a look if there is a way to overwrite that.
