mysql-workbench blinding color

Postby xieu90 » Sat Mar 08, 2014 7:18 am

I installed workbench some days ago, today i tried to use it and i was shocked when it opened.
there are text in white area and i almost couldnt read it at all. are there any way to change color of this program?
I tried edit/preferences/appearance and edited color of preset or even deleted all of them but no effect

I'm having the same problem on linux mint debian 64bit cinnamon, have you had any luck finding a solution? I installed workbench from synaptic package manager first and then tried the ubuntu version from the mysql website but both caused the same problem. Is anyone running workbench on LMDE without this problem?

A Google search shows this to be an age old problem. Posts a year ago suggested colour selection would be an option. The Oracle site said V6.1 would have a high contrast color scheme conforming to Windows specs. I just downloaded latest version 6.1.4 and installed to replace 6.08. Same problem and no configuartion options :x
