I had replied to your prior post before reading this one so sorry if
it comes across a little weird. I did find the link to the specific
persona/theme if you want to check it out:

So, I wonder why LO is not using the persona/theme menu colors.
Since LO's menu text color is black, you will have to use the
lighter colored themes.

You have to define it during the submission process.  You give it
a name, define the header and footer images, and you define the
text and accent colors for menu text.

I do not know of any way to change the menu text in a persona if
the designer chose the wrong color for the user.

I try to use either a white color for dark backgrounds or black
for the light background.  Maybe later, I will make some
backgrounds that will look good with some colored text.  I test
my persona/theme designs with Firefox before I submit them.  I do
not know of a way to do that with LibreOffice, but maybe later.

Of course, if you can get a hold of the designer, you could let
them know that a specific theme and its menu text color did not
work for your system.

My "light" reptile skin worked well with my systems, and
another's but a user on this list stated it was not "working for
them".  SO, I decided to make a really dark version of the same
theme and using white text instead of black.

Sorry this does not help you.  For me there are a lot of themes
out there that seemed to have dark images and dark text, or
others where the text color was not standing out enough to use.

Well, I could make it much darker, but then I would have to
use White text.

It looks good on my Ubuntu's LCD monitor, and my Win7

So decide, dark background and white text or light
background with the default black text.

OR you could go and make a theme yourself and submit it to
Firefox and get it approved.  Then use that one.

Hi :) I guess it depends somewhat on how your monitor is
set-up. I have 2 that are both supposedly 'correct' but
one is a lot darker than the other.  I put "correct" in
single quotes because i think both those monitors are a
bit wonky and wouldn't be good for editing images.
Regards from Tom :)

I really like how my "LibreOffice Reptile Skin 1"
Persona design works out on LibreOffice 4.0.0.
Seriously? It's so bright that it's unusable.
