I have just installed VL 5.9 SOHO and noticed the font was invisible on several apps. I changed the Font colour for Konqueror and that seemed to work, then Opera as well, but this problem keeps re-emerging. IE: When I right click the main panel, then hit configure the window pops up fine. However when I run my mouse over the window on the left (Arrangement, Hiding, Menus etc.) they light up then disappear completely when I move the mouse away. Minimizing the window, then bringing it back brings the font back, but again moving the mouse over them again causes them to vanish. Help would be much appreciated. I have searched everywhere for a speedy and reliable KDE environment (forget Kubuntu or Suse) and VL seems to fit the bill - except for this showstopper.
