Bad view in gedit with dark mode an highlighted lines

I use gnome 3.36.8 and gedit 3.36.2 with dark mode. Here I have enabled the highlighted line. Unfortunately it doesn’t look good with default settings. The text is hard to see on highlighted lines.

Example:

It’s known. For now you’ll have to either pick another source code color scheme in the prefs or disable “current line highlighting”.

Hi,

This is a bug caused by ubuntu cause they decide to change the Stylesheet from underneath the apps, leaving many to break like this. Please file a bug against Yaru or at gedit at launchpad.

FWIW it’s reproducable with fedora too, not only ubuntu.

Fedora doesn’t have a “dark mode”, as doesn’t GNOME. The “dark mode” Ubuntu has is an unsupported hack.

Someone should really add a huge warning on tweaks

The problem is it’s not tweaks, they actually added it into g-c-c and present as “dark mode” instead of a theme.
