Unreadable IDE default theme in 3.10 Ubuntu


#1

The new dark theme in SuperCollider 3.10 IDE is unreadable in the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. I cannot even navigate to the preferences in order to change the theme. Any suggestions?

Hi,

You can get yourself back to a usable IDE easily. You should have a config file at ~/.config/SuperCollider/sc_ide_conf.yaml. Rename it to sc_ide_conf.yaml.backup or whatever you like. Afterwards, when you open the IDE again, you will see a new config file in that location which will have the IDE’s default configuration. You should be able to use the IDE again.

Cheers,
Patrick

thanks for the report. just filed an issue for this: https://github.com/supercollider/supercollider/issues/4218

this issue crops up if you have been using the same theme since 3.6 or before. in 3.7 the editor theme system underwent a minor makeover but still imported old themes. these old themes have some weird formatting which is not being correctly handled in 3.10.
