Debian 8 x64 and Wickr Messenger.


Hello.
I want install "Wickr" messenger on Debian 8 x64 but it showed me an error about "libsqlcipher" package. I installed this package and then "Wickr" messenger but when I open my "wickr" I can't see any options and texts because all of them are white .

Any idea?

Thank you.

I think it has to do with your system font configuration. I use Wickr too, and the text on my window is black.

My Font configuration is :

$ cat /etc/fonts/fonts.conf
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<!-- /etc/fonts/fonts.conf file to configure system font access -->
<fontconfig>

<!--
DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE.
IT WILL BE REPLACED WHEN FONTCONFIG IS UPDATED.
LOCAL CHANGES BELONG IN 'local.conf'.

The intent of this standard configuration file is to be adequate for
most environments. If you have a reasonably normal environment and
have found problems with this configuration, they are probably
things that others will also want fixed. Please submit any
problems to the fontconfig bugzilla system located at fontconfig.org

Note that the normal 'make install' procedure for fontconfig is to
replace any existing fonts.conf file with the new version. Place
any local customizations in local.conf which this file references.

What DE do you use? I'm guessing GNOME or something like it?

Alright, then this should be a fairly easy fix.

Right click on the desktop, and click Change Desktop Background.
In the Appearance Preferences window, click the Theme tab.
Near the bottom of the window, click Customize.
Click the Colors tab.
Make sure that under Windows that the text color is black.

If you need help, refer to the attachments.

a user named "hack3rcon" is likely to use a dark theme.
tried a light theme, to make the white letters dark?

How do you mean? Can you post a screenshot?

Also, a shade of gray might be a good choice if you want to stick with the black theme.
