Black selection in evince

I am using evince in xfce4. Evince has a weird behavior, the color of the selection is completely black and in some pdf files the selection does not follow the text structure either.

A picture is worth more than one hundred words...

Do anyone has a similar problem? How can I have a more friendly color?

Re: Black selection in evince

Try to set the GTK3 theme to Adwaita and see if it is any better. My evince always gives me blue selection with white text.

Re: Black selection in evince

I installed gnome-themes-standard and tried Adwaita and now it works fine. So it is indeed a theme problem, unfortunately it seems almost all the themes have this problem...
Oh well, Adwaita looks nice.

I keep the thread unsolved as I hope we can find a more general solution.
