Linux newbie here. I'm running Cairo-Dock in lubuntu 13.10, and am quite pleased with it so far... except for one issue:

When I select options from a menu, the "highlighted" text turns bright white, against the gray background. I've attached two screenshots, a before and after.

I have tried looking through Cairo's configuration menus, but have been unable to find a fix. I imagine all I'd have to do is work out a way to change the text color when highlighted, but I'm stumped as to how to do that. Any thoughts?

Thank you!
