[Bug 1515829] Re: Gimp tooltip text color is white on white


A work around to this problem is explained in the following link:

The problem seems to be some incompatibility as explained in that page, as per quote below:
"When utilizing a desktop environment other than GNOME, or when using a non-default theme in GNOME-shell itself, you may often encounter incompatibilities which are mostly reflected through native GTK apps such as GIMP, Nautilus, Totem, etc…"

The solution explained there about modifying file "~/.gtkrc-2.0" worked
for me.
