I am running Manjaro KDE and today I discovered that my gtk themes aren't working, instead gtk applications tend to have white on white = unreadable. How can I fix this?

I have tried setting the env variable gtk2rc. I have tried deleting .gtkrc-2.0 file.

From white-on-off-white

Go to Kde system settings, then pick Application Style, then pick GNOME Application Style (GTK). For both Select a GTK2 Theme and Select a GTK3 Theme choose HighContrast, then click on Apply.
