Thanks for the reply. I checked systemsettings. The colors do not match.
MAy be it is not pulling the colors from the KDE settings. However I am

Thanks for your detailed report. Function argument hints were recently
fixed to use the system-wide settings for tooltip foreground and background
colors. Thus, I suspect the problem is in a bad setting for tooltip colors.
Go to the KDE system settings (should be available by running
'systemsettings' in a console), open page Common Appearance and
Behavior->Application Appearance->Colors->Colors, and check the settings
for Tooltip Background / Text.

Please let us know, whether these match or do not match the color of the
argument hints in RKWard.
