Black-background & grey text textbox when change folder name

Postby tridephysique on Mon Feb 03, 2014 8:39 pm

On linuxmint cinnamon 16, when changing folder's (and/or file's) name, the text box under the folder has a black background and a grey text. This make the text nearly invisible when I start typing the new name. I cannot change folder's name when I cannot see it. I tried to change themes but it doesn't help.
How can I solve it, please?
Thanks.

I tried this but it seems the problem is independent from these setting; I tried installing many controls but it doesn't help.

Since changing Controls did not make the background white and the text black or make the text more visible, I changed to the default theme - MintX. Do you know the exact theme that solves the problem?

I am not aware of any theme that has that problem, that is why I asked you which theme it was.

You can install other themes besides Mint-X which I know do not have that problem
