This bug popped up when I tried to install Microchips MPLAB X, an IDE, C-Compiler and ICE for PIC-Microcontrollers, based on NetBeans on Linux Mint 17.1, Cinnamon 64-bit.

Mint File /usr/share/themes/Mint-X/gtk-2.0/styles/menus.rc must be edited:

a) Menu items that have an 'active' state are shown with their text as the same colour as the background, rendering the menu item impossible to read until hovered over. See above comments from Richard Keller and Marco Moreno.
Change line 53 (style "menu") from:
 fg[ACTIVE] = @base_color
to:
fg[ACTIVE] = @fg_color

b) Menues do not have borders
Change line 42/43 (style "menu") from:
xthickness = 0
ythickness = 0
to:
xthickness = 1
ythickness = 1

c) Menues do not have visible separators
Change line 103 (style "menu-item-separator") from:
ythickness = 0
to:
ythickness = 1
