This is upstream bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/deja-dup/+bug/929128

Which is really GTK+_bug https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=670018

But this was worked around in deja-dup 22.0.  You should really use the latest stable version, 22.1!

Three months without any response?
Comment 6 Chris Smart 2012-09-13 17:43:05 EDT
This is only a problem for me if I use Adwaita GTK+ theme. Switching to another theme such as Elementary or one that's contrasted the text is readable.

Although Michael wrote in upstream ticket:
"Turns out this is a bug in light-themes, not GTK+. Adwaita does the right thing. See https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=670018 for a test program and reproduction steps."

Rawhide has the same problem as it's only a minor release.

I did a test build of latest stable 22.1 from 2012-04-16 and the problem no-longer exists. We might need to do a new major version bump for f17.

Comment 11 Fedora End Of Life 2013-07-04 03:01:50 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '17'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Bug Reporter:  Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you 
would still like  to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version  of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 12 Fedora End Of Life 2013-08-01 14:45:00 EDT
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
