Menu colors for Ardour2 are not visible

I have built Ardour2 from the latest cvs (

The color scheme being used does not show the menu items, although they are there when you click on the area.

Is there a file anyone can point me to to remedy this?

I forgot to mention, I have two computers at FC4 running CCRMA kernels.

The following version have readable menus on my computers:

  • Ardour .99

  • Ardour2 alpha 1

  • Ardour2 alpha 2

This part of Ardour2 is going through changes right now.
