Description Marcelo Ruiz 2013-02-11 14:10:02 UTC
Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install Boje Theme in Ubuntu/Mint: 
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:upubuntu-com/gtk3 
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install boje-theme
2. Open Calc and change the background color of a cell to yellow (or another color).
3. Save the document.
4. Close Calc.
5. Set the desktop theme to boje-turquoise (for example).
6. Open Calc.
7. Open the saved document.
8. Verify the cell background color.

Current behavior:
The cell color is actually set to the correct color, but it is not shown when a dark theme is used. 

Expected behavior:
The cell background should be shown.

By the way: I have installed LibreOffice 4.0.3 and it is not listed in the website dropbox. So I need to select another version so I can submit the bug report.

Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: rc

Created attachment 74635 [details]
cells of different colors

Attached sample .ods file with some cells changed to yellow and pink.
Comment 2 Brenda Granados 2013-02-11 18:25:32 UTC
I confirmed this on Ubuntu 12.04 using Libre Office 4.0.

The cell colors are not visible using the Boje theme, but any default Ubuntu theme is okay. I also tried changing a cell color while using the Boje theme, and it still did not show. If you right click on a cell that you know has a different background, and choose Format Cell, it still shows the different color (pink or yellow in the attachment) is selected.

I updated the status of this to NEW. I set the priority to Minor, because there is no loss of data, and this problem exists with a select theme on Ubuntu.
Comment 4 Marcelo Ruiz 2013-02-11 22:41:30 UTC
An additional note: This is a problem I reported in the first version of LibreOffice. It does happen with several dark themes, Boje is just an example (Delorean-dark, FlatStudio Dark, Mediterranean Dark, Moonrise, OMG-Dark, and so on), so it is not limited to Boje.

I found a solution here: http://en.libreofficeforum.org/node/4612

Unchecking a bow in:
Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Accessibility > Automatically detect high-contrast mode of the operating system

It works for me (Libre Office

This feature of adapting to dark themes has been removed. Setting to WFM.
If for somehow you are still seeing this, feel free to set back to NEW.

Yes, the automatic adaptation was removed. Right now I can't find the report where the decision was made.
