Screenshot of the toolbar issue

Steps to Reproduce:
1. With Ubuntu 16.04, create a new document
2. Insert shape
3. Click on it

Expected Results:
All toolbar foreground and background colors are consistent

Actual Results:
'Line Style', 'Line Width', and 'Area Style/Filling' use a totally different theme than all the other toolbar items.

Hi Luke, what is your version of LibreOffice?

Your screenshot shows that the issue is not the background of the toolbar but the background of some widgets like area color. I reproduce this behavior with LO 5.2 under Ubuntu 16.04 x86-64
Note : with GTK2, LO is not able to paint the background of toolbars.

Best regards. JBF

Yes, you have to use the default GTK3 backend. 

I roll my own builds. The earliest build that I have is 
Build ID: e4d5b5efac71ed2a08dcd09877078a6cf6bde0d2

My most recent build Version:
Build ID: 619d5fceada2df7c7bc915cea51779fd115d0fcd

They are both affected by this bug. Is there anything else you need?

This should be solved with downstream packaging in LibreOffice 1:5.2.1~rc2-0ubuntu1 and the matching update in ubuntu-themes 16.10+16.10.20160908-0ubuntu1.

See: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/1580537

The LibreOffice vendor patch hasnt been upstreamed yet as this is an Ubuntu only issue. Marking this WORKSFORME for now.

If there are no objection to upstream a vendor specific fix, I'll push it to upstream too.

Björn Michaelsen,
This has been closed, but it's still affecting current builds. Could you please push your fix upstream?
Comment 6 Luke 2016-11-14 03:08:35 UTC
git master still has this issue on 16.10, 16.04, 14.04.

No: The vendor patch is _both_ in LibreOffice and in Ubuntu themes. As such it wont work for upstream.
