Neil - I see both of your posts.
I run digikam 3.4.0 on openSUSE 12.3, but KDE 4.11.1.
I don't know how to tweak Gnome, but here is what I would do in KDE:
1. Open System Settings(which I keep in my desktop folder) - Application 
2. Select Colors , which opens a window with 5 Tabs : Scheme - Options - 
Colors - Inactive - Disabled
3. If you select the Colors Tab, you will find a row where you can tweak 
ToolTips font colors as well as others. Or, on the Scheme Tab, you could 
try some different schemes to see if you find a color combo that works 
better for you.

I assume Gnome has a similar setup/customization interface, I just don't 
know what it is.
If you cannot find it, try the openSUSE Forum- Applications. Lots of 
Gnome users hang out there.

This sounds like a desktop settings issue, not a digikam issue, but who
