Ubuntu – Menu text is dark after installing KDE-desktop

desktop-environmentskdethemesunity

I installed the package kde-desktop, and now my menus in Unity have dark text:

Changing my theme in System settings > Appearance > Look does nothing to change the text color. How can I change it back?

  • I had exactly the same problem. I selected Ambiance as the theme in Gnome/Unity, but the menus and other stuff was unreadable dark on dark font as shown in the image posted by the OP.

    In the end I had to change ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini

    BEFORE it had (for whatever reasons):

    [Settings]
    gtk-font-name=Ubuntu 9
    gtk-theme-name=oxygen-gtk
    gtk-icon-theme-name=oxygen
    gtk-fallback-icon-theme=gnome
    gtk-toolbar-style=GTK_TOOLBAR_ICONS
    gtk-menu-images=1
    gtk-button-images=1
    gtk-application-prefer-dark-theme=0
    

    AFTER I changed it to:

    [Settings]
    gtk-application-prefer-dark-theme=1
    

    Now the colors are fine.
