Ugly Eclipse appearance

Hi,
I don't know why my Eclipse appearance is very ugly:

I can't see anything...

However for example netbeans looks great:

Can i do something with it?

Please help me, because Eclipse is probably better IDE than netbeans

Re: Ugly Eclipse appearance

try using a different theme -- one that isn't too dark and see if it makes any difference

Re: Ugly Eclipse appearance

I can't change theme... Where is option to do this?

If it is important - i am using openbox as my WM.

Re: Ugly Eclipse appearance

Inxible's referring to your GTK2 theme.

Re: Ugly Eclipse appearance

Eclipse is not very good with dark themes. Sad but true... Try running at least eclipse with different GTK theme.

Just found this and it might be helpful:
https://github.com/Prototik/Eclipse-Juno-Dark - dark theme
http://marketplace.eclipse.org/content/ … rome-theme - plugin to edit theme. I was not able to install it. Perhaps, you'll have more luck with it.

Re: Ugly Eclipse appearance

Thanks very much, but I have a different question(becouse I have to change codeblocks apperance too).
How can I run this command :

GTK2_RC_FILES=$GTK2_RC_FILES:/somewhere_1/gtkrc /somewhere_2/eclipse

from right-click menu?
Bacause if I wrote in this way I have an error:

Failed to execute child process GTK2_RC_FILES=$GTK2_RC_FILES:/home/xorgx3/.gtkrc(no such file or directory).

From terminal it's working.
