I wish there was a better way to do this.
I added a number of personas to the FF system, but LO did not [back 
then] take the text color option correctly from the FF persona 
settings.  Yes the font color is really important for the darker 
backgrounds.  Also, the icons in the toolbars might have problems with 
darker backgrounds, or at least it did when I created them when LO first 
started to use personas.

It would be nice to have a "persona editor" built in to the 
personalization option[s] so you can choose the background image[s] and 
the font color within LO and not have to do the "hard coding" in the 
setup file[s].

The Font Colour option is currently broken when displaying the STARTUP
CENTER screen. This is fixed in 4.3. However you can bypass this problem by
reloading the Personas.

I have found that defaulting the Font Colour to RED #ff0000 gives a more
flexible look that suits more Personas than plain BLACK #000000.  In that
case you can reload a Personas stored on you own system without the need to
restart LibO. Simply use a default header name, in my case Header.jpg for
the Personas, overwrite or rename the exisiting Personas in the folder and
do the following

Remove the Personas TOOLS > OPTIONS > PERSONALIZATION > Plain Look > OK 
Reload   the Personas TOOLS > OPTIONS > PERSONALIZATION > Own Theme > OK

You can use an image editor such as GIMP to create the Personas, save it
into the /Gallery/Personas folder and you have a basic in-house Personas
management system. Works for me..Peter
