Description Jens Petersen 2007-09-19 21:32:39 EDT
Description of problem:
The Nodoka theme seems to contrast the current selection badly in
unfocused GtkTreeView widgets.  When a GtkTreeView widget is made
insensitive the highlighting is also a bit strange.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install scim and run im-chooser, or install gtk2-devel and run gtk-demo
2. press Tab or click to move focus around window
3. in im-chooser disable input methods

Actual results:
2. Quite unclear unhighlighting of current selection in TreeView when unfocused.
3. Text of current selection does not fade.

Expected results:
2. Clear distinction between current selection in TreeView and other entries.
3. last selection text should also appear lighter

Additional info:
I wonder if this should be a F8Blocker.

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2007-09-19 23:30:44 EDT
I can attach screenshots for the insensitive case too if you want.
Comment 4 Martin Sourada 2007-09-20 00:32:03 EDT
Thanks for the screenshots, when I read the description I thought at first, that
the text contrast badly with the background... :)

It seems Clearlooks does not make differences between selection in focused
window and in unfocused window (i.e. both are blue), in Nodoka we do it by
making the selection grey if in unfocused widget. What solution to this bug
would you prefer?

a) usage of darker grey
b) leave it blue for unfocused widgets as well

Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2007-09-20 00:59:15 EDT
Darker grey sounds good to me, thanks.

Here is a screenshot of the insensitive widget too.
Comment 7 Martin Sourada 2007-09-20 17:08:55 EDT
Hi, I fixed the treeview issue in gtk-nodoka-engine-0.6-2.fc8. Please check, if
it's what you wanted (if not, reopen the bug). About the insensitive case I am
not quite sure - it does not seem wierd to me. If you insist on it, please open
a separate bug about it (one bug for one issue seems good to me).

Thanks :)
Comment 8 Jens Petersen 2007-09-24 00:37:59 EDT
IMHO it is still not dark enough, could you please make it darker grey.

This is how it looks in latest package. If you are OK with this one, I'll close
this bug again. Thanks.
