I use Mr Grim's Themes and they are dark also. occasionally it happens and i cant see text on a dark background ,but rarely
to get round this i right click and highlight the text as if to copy and paste, this enables me to see it temporarily its not a fix but a workaround and as i prefer to have a dark theme its livable with

I cannot find a theme that will make it look like it should and still have the same taskbar and so forth... all of them seem to be custom themes that change your taskbar and all your icons??
