Is this still an issue with the Plasma 5.3 packages in Chromodoris?

Haven't checked yet, sorry.

ximion claimed this task.

Assuming that this issue is fixed - Plasma has been updated to 5.3 meanwhile anyway.
If the issue persists, please reopen this task.

I confirm the issue still persists with Plasma 5.3 after installing Chromodoris (RC2).

Looks like this is an upstream bug in KDE with wrong icon inheritance...

I can reproduce the bug, the other UI elements are not colored correctly.... Strange.

Following the discussion of upstream bug, these steps solved the problem for me:

System Settings - Appearance - Desktop Theme -> change theme to "Breeze dark" -> Apply
System Settings - Desktop Effects -> switch off "Background contrast" and "Blur" -> Apply
System Settings - Desktop Effects -> switch back on "Background contrast" and "Blur" or hit "Defaults" -> Apply
(in the last step, only switching back on "Blur" is mandatory)

As expected I get a solid dark panel with dark kickoff, white clock and white K-menu-icon.

It unfortunately is too late to fix this for chromodoris, but we will have it fixed with dasyatis, or maybe provide an update via the updates repository.
