    Default Some issues on dark color schemes (KDE) with 4.1 (Build 20575)

    Today I downloaded the new 4.1 (Build 20575) version of Beyond Compare and I'm impressed. The new Qt design integrates better than the old one.

    Nevertheless, I have the "issue", that some parts of the UI are not using system colors. You can see this very clear when using dark color schemes. I included a screenshot. As you can see, most of the widgets use the system colors, but some don't. They keep staying light/gray and don't follow the configured system color scheme.

    EDIT: I added a seconed screenshot about my used color configuration as it should look like...

    By the way: I work almost every day with Beyond Compare and I wondered the last weeks about a new version, and voilá, yesterday this update came up! Great work! BC4 is still the most powerful tool for comparison works.

    Meanwhile, I changed to a somewhat not so dark theme and can use BC4 with it.

    But for other users it may be a real issue if there is no way to configure it right with a dark color scheme...

    Thanks for the feedback. Do you have a download link for the theme you are currently using? Which OS are you currently using with KDE, and which version?

    I am using Kubuntu 12.04.5 actually with KDE 4.14.2

    You can use any dark color scheme from kde-look.org. Normally you can install these via system settings. As an example you maybe can use the "Wonton Soup" color scheme which should be pre-installed (as far as I know).

    Thanks. I found that one in the Colors section (not Theme). I'll open a tracker to investigate.

    Is there anything new in BC with dark color schemes?

    Hello,

    Not at this time. This is still an open tracker that we're investigating.

    For other users seeing this thread, the issue is to follow system configurations for KDE color settings. We do have some Dark themes for download for other scenarios, here: http://www.scootersoftware.com/downl...=kb_morecolors
