The selection is unreadable

The text looks odd

Turning off Global Dark Theme in Ubuntu GNOME 15.10 makes selected item in the Software Center unreadable. Similar things happen in the Extensions page of GNOME Tweak Tool. I have tried disabling all the extensions.

EDIT: I just tried this on Kali Linux 2.0 which was also running GNOME3 and the issue in the Tweak Tool seems to be absent there. I thus think it is most likely an issue with my specific display.

The one regarding the Software Center remains.

  • have you got a copy of a light theme in you local home folder ~/.themes - maybe that is conflicting. – fossfreedom Jan 12 '16 at 9:19
  • I'll check that. – Ashhar Hasan Jan 12 '16 at 9:21

You could try this, and enter this from the terminal:

 dconf replace -f /org/compiz
 unity --reset-icon &disown
 sudo dkms-reconfigure unity

and it might work fine this way.
