Changing "Tool_Tip" foreground colors to make readable
#1
When I hover over a button in GIMP,  and get a "tool tip"  which appears to have white text on an off-white background, nearly zero contrast and impossible to read.

How does one change the foreground/background colors of the 'tool tips' to make these readable?

If I download/install 2.8.22 will I have library version conflicts, manual updates?  [1]

System:
GIMP 2.8.18, YAST install, latest available from Suse
OpenSuse 42.3, fully patched
Linux spock 4.4.104-39-default #1 SMP Thu Jan 4 08:11:03 UTC 2018 (7db1912) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux


NOTE [1]: Installed VLC outside of YAST, now seeing:
phonon-backend-vlc-0.8.2-5.2.
x86_64 conflicts with vlc-noX > 2.2.99 provided by vlc-noX-3.0.1-278.2.x86_64
vlc-codecs-3.0.1-278.2.x86_64 requires libavcodec57(unrestricted), but this requirement cannot be provided

As bad as DLL HELL with windows!

openSUSE KDE?

It is a GTK bug. You could try something like this in system settings - apply colors to non-qt applications. Edit: or untick it if it is ticked - one or the other Wink

If that does not work try: https://iwf1.com/how-to-change-gtk-apps-...ound-color

otherwise you might have to change the overall theme.

>>> Best ask on an openSUSE forum.
