Raw Therapee (4.2) looks bad when I activate the dark theme in "Tweak Tool", with "bad" I mean, white controls, unreadable text, dark background with dark fonts...

Steps to reproduce it:

  • Fresh installation of Ubuntu Gnome 16.04.1 x64
  • Installation of Raw Therapee.
  • Activation of dark theme.

Probably the issue affects other programs but I've not checked it.


After search for a while in Google I figured out that the problem is related with gtk, gtk2 to be more precise.

We just need to install gtk2-engines

$ sudo apt install gtk2-engines

And that's it. Restart Raw Therapee and everything is it should be.

I hope this can help to somebody with similar problems.
