Bug#537300: shiki-wise-theme: broken selection


tag 537300 = wontfix

I took a look at the screenshots, I think you're referring to the
selected background color in general. That can be changed in Appearance
Preferences to any shade - In this case, the selected background color
for all Shiki themes is always the LightBaseColor for all the
gnome-colors icons. The wise variant is particularly tricky, as that is
the darkest and dullest shade of green I could use as LightBaseColor for
the icons, that would also look good with the colored widgets of Shiki.
I find the green/white combination perfectly readable in my 1680x1050
15in. laptop display with small 8pt fonts, as the lightness value is at
least lower than Clearlooks's stock blue. However, if necessary - an
exception can be made. A slightly darker shade of green might still
retain consistency with the icons, although if you find the current
shade unreadable, a slightly darker shade may not help. I would suggest
to simply set the "Selected Items' text color" to black in Appearance
Preferences in this case. The theme fully supports this setting, and it
wouldn't create any inconsistencies.
