Object properties black pulldown items on Linux Mint
« on: April 13, 2019, 12:41:44 pm »
I just installed lazarus 2.0 on Linux Mint 18.04

When I click an pulldown item in Object Properties the items are displayed in black on black (see the attachment).

I have tried to the options in menu: Tools -> Options -> Environment -> Object inspector -> colors but still failed.

Your help will be much appreciated. Thanks

Please fill an issue about it. I'm using Lazarus Qt on Mint 19.1 Cinnamon and it works ok.

Which desktop system? I guess your Lazarus is built with Gtk2 bindings. Try changing the system's theme affecting GTK2 apps.
If you have KDE you may want to build Lazarus with QT bindings.

I changed the desktop theme from the default one. It's ok now.

Thanks for the attentions

It's still something wrong with extracting system colors under gtk2 if that theme fails (if that combobox is owner drawn).
