That screenshot has no image selected... And that grays out the whole right 
sidebar for me, with no text for , except the tab labels...
After all, the right sidebar is mostly displaying information concerning the 
*current* image, which doesn't exist in your screenshot (the *only* one I've 
seen from you, btw.)

Concerning the tab labels, have you checked in Digikam settings, "Views" 
section, if you have custom fonts active: the first two tabs ("Icons" and 
"treeviews") allow using either the system font or a custom font.

Thing is, now I know you are also using OpenSUSE, I can try to reproduce the 
problem. *Try* is the key here: I cannot get a combination where the labels 
become unreadable. But I'm using the Digikam 6.1.0 from OpenSUSE Leap 15.0, 
KDE:Extra repo, so *not* the appimage version.

And as Maik explained rather early in this thread, the appimage versions only 
have one style engine (Fusion), which seems to be a fairly limited one 
(understandable, as you want to keep an appimage reasonably compact). Perhaps 
that explains the problems you see.

Good luck
