Large part/test of X window black


I was toying around with some themes for KDE, untill i found out that some of my windows gets "blacked out", but what makes this really a problem is that text gets black, on black background aswell

I think this pic of VMWare describes my problem better:


I can tell you i have the same problems with amule and bittornado. All i know is that these applications i installed afterwards. Other programs such as Gaim and Kmess dont have the same problems though.

I've tried using the system configuration in KDE to set colors/themes/font to defaults, but it didnt help.

I am using Mepis 6.0, using ubuntu and Debian package system...

Any suggestions appreciated

SOLVED - can be closed!
