Default GTK Apps Don't Work Well Under KDE

I am facing problems with GTK apps such as Gedit, Firefox or Chrome.
When I try to copy content, the selected content becomes transparent. I
am running Kubuntu 12.04.


Suggestions.

I would go to System Settings; Application Settings; Colors

Each of the choices results in different application appearances. I suspect that a set of colors appears produces results that depend on your systems hardware. Why else would some of these be set to produce foreground and background combinations that are unreadable.



Let me know if this helps.

Thanks. Checked. The color for 'selected' text is set to 'white' and
the 'background' for selected text is set to grey. Somehow GTK apps
are not taking 'background' color.



Also in Nautilus, when I select any item it is not highlighted, same
problem there as well. Interesting no such problem if I use KDE
under Fedora.

What color scheme are you using? Can we assume you have Ubuntu installed
alongside Kubunu? I cannot reproduce this, looking to match your color
selections. If you are running Ubuntu as well, you may want to check out the
color settings there as well and see if adjusting there helps any.

Default color scheme, but I tried Oxygen and everything else available.

No, I only have Kubuntu installed.
