Anytime I install a dark theme I am unable to read the text in the software center as well as many other applications because the text is white and the software center background is also white. Does anyone know how I can fix this?

    I know this problem and it is hard to describe. Can you give us a screenshot?

  • And the name (and download link) of a dark theme that illustrates the issue so that others who don't know the problem can take a look.
