[Digikam-users] Tooltip text has changed to pale green. Help!

In addition, I found some issue with the "GTK+" kde graphic component with  
a Gnome/Unity desktop and dark theme.

I get unchangeable white background color if I choose a dark theme in  
Digikam. To fix this I set "Cleanlooks" as Graphic components (composants  
graphiques in french) in Digikam setup (last section "Divers" in french...  
may be "miscellaneous" in english).

Cleanlooks and all others seems to work except "GTK+" option.
