I'm not sure what you're seeing, but I may have had a similar
problem with Scribus 1.3.9. I could see a cream-colored box where
the tooltip was, but the text in the tooltip box was just about the
same color so I couldn't read it. The solution for me was to run
qtconfig and on the first screen at GUI Style, Select GUI Style,
choose Desktop Settings (Default). Save the settings. When I
restarted Scribus, the problem was gone and I can see the tooltips.
For the Scribus Preferences theme, I have the dropdown blank.

You may have to translate qtconfig to whatever in your distro is the
same thing. If you haven't tried this, see what happens. I would
advise leaving palettes, etc., in qtconfig alone.
