Sorry, the form has been submitted prematurely.

Description of problem:
The color scheme in mate in f18 contains incorrect values. It causes problems with "top" and "mc" (midnight commander).

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

[imlich@pcmlich workspace]$ rpm -q ncurses
[imlich@pcmlich workspace]$ rpm -q gnome-terminal
[imlich@pcmlich workspace]$ rpm -q mate-themes

How reproducible:
- Update from f17 to f18. Install mate. Open gnome-terminal and set gray on white theme. 
- Run "top" or "mc".
- Bold color is black and therefore invisible.

The "white color" is sort of gray. In midnight commander is difficult to distinguish directories (white) and files.

Don't use gnome-terminal. Use mate-terminal. File a bug on gnome-terminal if there is an issue with gnome-terminal.

Hello Dan.

I recently reopened a similar bug filled against mate-themes ...


It's possible this issue is caused by mate's inability to manipulate with gtk3 themes correctly. Using gnome-terminal with mate is a valid combination and the problem needs to be fixed. If you believe that mate-themes is not the right component, then feel free to change it to avoid duplicating this report.

Thank you.

GTK3 themes work fine on MATE. 

Try Nimbus.
