Description Jeremy Bicha 2012-02-20 18:21:27 UTC
Upgrading to gnome-themes-standard 3.3.90 with the High Contrast theme breaks the appearance of several apps (as tested on Ubuntu 12.04 Alpha).


Not shown in the above screenshot is that mousing over the All Settings button makes it unreadable: black text on black background. 

Ubuntu software-center (not as bad, but still a regression)

But the worst is that gnome-terminal with "Use colors from system theme" option shows black text on black background.

You need GTK+ master (or the yet-to-be-released 3.3.16) for this to work properly; gnome-control-center seems to work fine here. There could be a problem with gnome-terminal though.
Can you try again with GTK+ master?

You need to use vte 0.31 for gnome-terminal.

Pushed a fix for the gnome-terminal issue.
Closing the bug, since I'm pretty sure the other things you mention are due to a not recent enough GTK version. Feel free to reopen this bug if it's not the case.

Thank you Cosimo. The new gnome-themes-standard and the new GTK fixed the bugs I saw.

I also tried the latest gnome-terminal tarball with the vte 0.31 tarball which wasn't enough (I still had the black background).
