Highlights on Menus: text = white, background = grey


Hi all,

For a while now I have had a problem with my menus, these problems occur with gnome menus, xfce menus and programs. (GTK issue? ... i'm not sure)

Basically when I open a menu it looks normal:
Black text on greyish background.
When I move the mouse over an item of a menu that item, as expected, it gets highlighted.
However the highlighting is:
White text on a whiteish background. (almost impossible to read.)

So it basically makes all my menus look ugly and I have to move the mouse to read all the menu items. I _think_ this first occurred when playing about with window themes in gnome. Changed to one of them, the from that point on, no matter what theme I use it's always the same problem.
If anyone knows how to fix this I would love to hear it.

Talking Fixed

The problem was with my GTK settings - so i renamed all my ~/.gtk* files to back them up.
Now I can read my menus, hurrah.
