Deskbar's dropdown menu assumes a black-on-white theme

Bug #57377 reported by Warbo on 2006-08-23
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Fix Released
deskbar-applet (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Using a theme with white fonts, usually a dark theme, the deskbar's dropdown list of possible actions still has a white background. Since it doesn't specify a font colour, the white font is used and the options all appear empty until they are selected with the cursor keys. A possible solution would be to use black fonts independent of what the GTK theme suggests. (I tried looking through various python files for the background's setup, but couldn't find it)

Thanks for the bug report.

I'm closing this bug because it has been fixed in Edgy.

It won't be fixed in Dapper since this bug doesn't fit backports
requirements. See for
more information.
