Back when I ran under Lucid, I was using some brownish theme (under
Gnome), which came by default and had this self-same problem. I solved
it by switching my theme to ClearLooks. I know this all changed somewhat
when Unity came out, but I remember fixing it after I began to use that
as well (I put Unity behind me and run Mint/Cinnamon).
You might Google ClearLooks or just change the theme you use to a
Also, in Help -> Eclipse Marketplace, there's a plug-in called Eclipse
Color Theme (as I recall) that might be even easier to implement
especially if you don't want to muck with your system-wide desktop.
Best of luck.
