# 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
