I use a dark color scheme for my desktop. I have the menu bar background color set to black, while the menu titles are supposed to be white. This set up works pretty well for almost all of my programs except for anything in the OpenOffice suite. The menu titles seem to be black and are not visible against the black background.

Is there any way to change to color scheme for the OpenOffice programs to match that of my gnome color profile?

Also, some of the menu items show up as green while others are white (like they're supposed to be). I don't like the green at all. Is there a way to make them all white?

It should do this anyway. Are you using the official OOo version?

The green items in the screenshot are disabled items, and are shown in a different colour to show that they are disabled. Do you really want them to be the same colour, and hence having no way to tell which items are disabled?

Yea, I'm using the latest OOO from the Ubuntu Software center. I've tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it already but that did nothing.

That could be part of the problem. The third-party versions of OOo in Linux distribution repositories are notoriously buggy. It might be worth getting rid of this version and installing the official one from [url]openoffice.org[/url].

That fixed it. I downloaded the OOO suite from the official site and the color template works now.

Thanks Ed.
