Tooltips/hints are not visible

  • Anonymous - 2011-02-25


    Today I have started to use TexMakerX and I really like it. But there is a
    problem with the hints and tooltips. I cannot read them because the white text
    is not visible on the yellow background. I hope you can see the problem on the
    attached screenshot. I have not change any configuration settings so far. If
    you need any additional information how to solve the problem, I will be glad
    to provide it.

    I am using TexMakerX 2.0 on Ubuntu 10.10.

    works fine here.
    what are your settings for "style","color scheme","use system icons" and
    "ignore most system colors" ?

    Thanks for your help!

    I have uploaded a screenshot with my general settings. Maybe you can identify
    the problem.

    if you let the mouse cursor hover over a icon or the close button for an
    editor, can you read the tooltip then ?

    It is the same yellowish background of the tooltip making it impossible to
    read anything.

    okay, if you use another program like gedit (text editor from utilities)
    How appear the tooltips there ? (e.g. on tab close)

    In gedit it is white text on black ground.

    can you try out what happens if you

    1) turn off "ignore most system colors"
    2) use a differnt color scheme (classic)
    3) use a different style

    I changed the style from Plastique to default. Now everything works perfectly
    even when I switch back to Plastique. Seems strange, but now it works. The
    only thing I need now are some documents to work with my new editor.

    Thanks for your help jsundermeyer!
