Description Hamid 2017-05-16 00:50:56 UTC

Using GTK3 Breeze:Dark, elements on dialog boxes are not themed to show focus except for textboxes where you input strings - they are shown with blue borders. Because of that moving among elements with tab key is not possible.

I am using KDE Plasma 5.9.4

I went in KDE settings, Application style, GTK app. style and changed to Breeze-Dark.

A screenshot would be helpful.

Is this a gtk3 or kde4 backend issue?

Yep, sorry, it is seen when launching with SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk3

Screenshot shows situation where focus is in the tab and I can switch tabs with arrow keys. There is no indicator, nothing to distinguish from the situation where I am focused somewhere else.

If I run gtk3-demo under the default Adwita and go to combo boxes and run that, then click on the string ids and tab to never and shift tab back to string ids I get focus rects in the native gtk3 widgets.

If I then switch to Breeze Dark I get no focus rects, so as far as I can see the bug isn't ours. Perhaps in the theme itself
