When I click CTRL+F to find a string in Eclipse Oxygen.2 (4.7.2), the code in the background gets grayed out. I asked on StackOverflow and learned that this is most likely an Ubuntu feature.

As I step through the text with Find, I want to see the found text.

How can I keep the background window from being "grayed out" while the dialog is open?

Note that other dialogs do the same: For example, If I choose Help->Install New Software, the background is grayed out.

How can the graying-out be limited via theming or via Ubuntu preferences so that it only works on modal dialogs, but is avoided on non-modal dialogs?

On Ubuntu 18.10 (GNOME Shell, using gdm, $DESKTOP_SESSION is ubuntu) enter image description here

  • The question is, can the graying-out be limited via theming or via Ubuntu preferences to modal/blocking dialogs, but avoided on non-modal/non-blocking dialogs? – howlger Jan 24 '19 at 8:12
  • In KDE this is very easy to do on a per application basis; it's not entirely clear to me what your DM is but extensions.gnome.org/extension/891/windows-blur-effects allows changing background effects, but it sounds like it doesn't remove all blur. – pbhj Jan 24 '19 at 14:11

    This is now no longer a problem with Version: 2019-09 R (4.13.0) & ubuntu 19.10. – NWS Nov 20 '19 at 21:23
