Bug Description

To repeat:

apt-get install blubuntu-look (for example)

open Appearance preferences, select theme "Blubuntu". Accept its background recommendation (fix its style to Fill screen, I think that's covered in another bug report)

(Optional, to get panel looking right for netbook remix: customise that theme, select Human-Murrine-Netbook in Controls, then in Colours, change the "Selected items" background back to a matching blue.)

Now, in ume-launcher, the text of the highlighted item (mouse-over, or tab-to) in any section is still orange.

(Persists that way through re-login and restart - worth mentioning as some effects changes seem not to sometimes.)

TBH it's actually reasonably pleasing as it is, but that's probably luck, ie: dependent on theme; I'm guessing it probably ought to follow the selected theme's colours.

just to repeat though; the orange-on-darkblue actually looks nice as a result of this bug, and a blue highlight would be a bit bland in comparison, so if you fix it (after all, orange won't look right with some colour schemes), please leave a way to retain existing behaviour - maybe just have a setting to allow a user-defined highlight colour to override the theme highlight colour? Of course that would mean having user settings on netbook-launcher at *all* which might not be a bad thing... ;-)
