Bug Description

When selecting an application in Ubuntu Software Center running on Ubuntu Gnome 14.04, the text is white. This makes it very difficult to read. The text should change to a darker colour. Not sure if the bug should be placed against Ubuntu Software Center or another component but the software center is where the problem shows up.

Screenshot attached shows VLC selected. The white text is difficult to read.

It's a usability issue that doesn't limit the functionality of a core package.

While "just" a useability issue, the flaw does make application titles nearly impossible to read once they've been selected. It only leads one to ask "what where they thinking", though I'm sure this is just the consequence of some other seemingly innocuous decision elsewhere. My system is running on a desktop with default themes as far as I'm aware, and the issue is obvious each time I use Software Centre.

Even though you're locked down, I think you should fix this one. It shouldn't be dangerous (though of course, nothing should), and it would correct a flaw that will otherwise be highly visible.

Same here!
How do these issues get by QC?
