This seems to be a fairly common issue but I could not find any help regarding Ubuntu 12.10 version.

I'm a rookie at Ubuntu but I think that the solutions for the older versions could not be used at Quantal Quetzal.

Am I missing something?

Got it using GNOME Color Chooser!

in Eclipse, go to Window > Preferences. A new window will open. There open the General detail discloser, then open Appearance, click on Colors and Fonts and voila! Change it to your liking.

I'm on a Mac right now, but the window is the same (and please consider this is Android Developer Tools, a eclipse based IDE): !

(of course, under OSX, its under Eclipse > Preferences, right next to the Apple logo, to get to the same window) – Daniel Monteiro Feb 6 '13 at 0:19
I tried that and unfortunately it did not work but I've solved the problema with GNOME Color Chooser program. :) – fredzvt Feb 6 '13 at 11:46
Weird! But to know you got it working. Also good to know you decided to give Ubuntu a shot, old buddy! – Daniel Monteiro Feb 8 '13 at 14:43
I'm giving Linux and Java a shot! :) – fredzvt Feb 8 '13 at 18:54
