Kismet asks you the first time it starts up if you can see the text. If you answer yes, it will configure itself accordingly.

You can either remove ~/.kismet/kismet_ui.conf and let it start again, or manually edit the colors in that file.

> The more serious problem I am having is that I can't select buttons (for example, if I get a Yes/No dialogue box, I can't use the arrows to select between the options, all I can do it hit return to select whatever Kismet has selected by default.)

That's because you use 'tab' not arrows (since some widgets need the arrow key, it can't be used to move between widgets)

> I also have to go into the menu to do things, instead of being able to use the hotkeys.

The hotkeys are the highlighted letters on the menu, you use them like normal menu shortcuts (ie, ~-K-Q to quit). The old mystery letters that everyone complained about are gone, now they complain that it uses documented keys.
