I'm using Eclipse 4.2 with Linux/GTK. How do I disable the CSS theme at
all ? I want to have the old SWT behaviour back, where the colors are
picked from the operating system defaults and not from a file that has
nothing to do with the OS.
The classic theme selection picks the Windows XP theme even under Linux
(someone got confused about the operating systems ?).
I tried to change that theme and after speding an hour trying to
understand where the files are located, I found that it can be tweaked
to some degree only, the defaults can't be picked from the OS, you have
to set something anyway (for example the tabs background colors).
I also tried to remove all theme extensions from the platform plugin,
but this won't work either.
Seems that CSS is mandatory and there is no way to get rid of it. Hope
it is not true.
Any suggestion ?

You can not disable CSS rendering in 4.2 . Your best bet is to switch to classic theme and restart Eclipse.
That's not quite true: the modelled UI is independent of the CSS support. The original poster could uninstall the CSS support -- except that it's specified in the org.eclipse.e4.rcp feature and so can't be uninstalled.
The original poster should be able to create a bundle to define a "null" theme that has an empty file. It'll require a restart to take effect though.
