I am working on the 5.3 Linux edition and may be able to work around the blue color issue. GTK3, which was introduced with 18.04 has caused some other issues. One of the main ones is RTL display of Hebrew texts. They made a change in GTK3 that the platform Bible Analyzer uses (wxWidgets/wxPython) does not yet support. They are aware of the issue.

I am not having any color issues, but am having bigger issues and no response from Tim on a resolution. I am pushed to delve deeper into original language study, to know and understand what God is saying in His word.
1. Tim has indicated (correct me if I am mistaken Tim) there is not enough interest to take BA deeper in Greek and Hebrew. He has also indicated there probably will not be any further Greek and Hebrew tools coming forth.
2. With Ubuntu 18.04 as the base, BA will not display Hebrew right-to-left. Tim says it is an Ubuntu issue in the display code. Ubuntu (so far) does not agree. XIPHOS displays Hebrew right-to-left beautifully. So I question whether it is really an Ubuntu issue or if Tim needs to rewrite BA code to use a different set of modules to display code. This issue is the same in all distros based on Ubuntu 18.04. And I do not want to revert to earlier distros that are not based on Ubuntu 18.04!
3. There have been no Linux BA updates for a LONG time.
These are all major points that affect my using BA, so I have returned to theWord running in Wine where everything just works! If Tim can address these issues AND take BA forward as a Linux Bible program then maybe I will revisit BA. But until then I am being productive using theWord, and that is very important to me!
