White text in white search field


Application: AppMenu QML - Jun 6 2012
answered
Question:I'm using black theme with white font. Text in search box is also white so it's almost invisible. Is there a way to fix it?




Answer:Yes, there are several methods (none of them involving the plasmoid developer however ;-) ):
1. Use a theme that uses a good color combination for textfields and their texts.
2. Ask the developer of the theme you are using to add a dark background for lineedits (the theme should have a file called "lineedit.svgz" in its widgets directory). Why do dark themes have white lineedits (they hurt my eyes in an otherwise perfectly dark environment)?
3. Copy such a dark "lineedit.svgz" file from another theme (e.g. Produkt http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=124213).
4. In the file called "colors" located in the main directory of your theme, change the value of "ForegroundNormal" in the section "[Colors:Window]" (this will however break the text color for all other widgets).
5. Better than 4: ask the Plasma devs to add a separate variable for defining the text color of lineedits.
6. Hack the file /usr/lib/kde4/imports/org/kde/plasma/components/TextField.qml (do this each time you upgrade KDE) and change the "color" attribute of the TextInput with id "textInput" to "black" (with the quotes) instead of "theme.textColor".

In my humble opinion, choices 1 and 2 are the only good ones. Note that not only my plasmoid, but also for example the "Dictionary" plasmoid, the "Add Widgets" panel and any plasmoid which has a lineedit shows this problem.

tl;dr
STOP USING BROKEN PLASMA THEMES
Non broken themes include (but are not necessarily limited to) Air, Glassified, Produkt.
