Description Tony Martin 2015-10-14 06:51:06 UTC
The MonoDevelop GUI does not respect the system GTK+ theme, and therefore is often difficult to read.  I have read elsewhere that MonoDevelop has the GUI colour scheme hard-coded and does not honour the system theme.  Is this true and is it likely to be rectified?  It may seem like a small thing, but one spends a lot of time in an IDE.
