I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 and latest Eclipse Neon. When I hover some code, I got my tooltip background black and my text orange. I found it here I must change colors at OS level. Here I saw how to edit colors at OS level. However it didn't work. Even changing Ubuntu Theme, changing tooltip color on Eclipse. I'm using Ambiance right now.


(Duplicate of https://stackoverflow.com/posts/40360725/)

I have verified that

export SWT_GTK3=0

is a viable, albeit suboptimal, workaround in Ubuntu 16.10 and Eclipse 4.6.1 when the desktop appearance uses the BlueMenta themes, with no additional tweaks required.

Tweaking the gtk-3.0 css files didn't work for me.

Other users have had better luck with the scripts in this project
