Dolphin + Xubuntu: white text with white background when select folder

Hi,

normally i use kubuntu 16.04, but kde/plasma something is a little bit strange. so i installed xubuntu 16.04 and dolphin (for me the best file manager on linux). when i select a folder in folder view all is ok, the text is white with blue border. but when i move the mouse over the selected folder i can't see the text anymore. the text is white and the border also. this only happens in dolphin (as i can say). in an other forum i've read that this has something to do with the "glowing" effect in kde?

i've tried different color themes, but the problem is still there. is also installed kde systemsettings but there is nothing where i can disable glowing or change the color. can i edit this by changing something in xfce files?

Re: Dolphin + Xubuntu: white text with white background when select folder

whats the output of

env|grep QT_

if the platformtheme is set to GTK+ then there is your issue.


$ aptitude why gnome   
Unable to find a reason to install gnome.

Re: Dolphin + Xubuntu: white text with white background when select folder

is the issue fixed if you run it with?

QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=fusion dolphin

also the QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE is probably set either in /etc/environment, /etc/X11/Xsession.d/$SOMEFILE, ~/.profile or ~./xprofile

you can also use a matchin but native qt theme like breeze: https://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?pid=44721#p44721
