Description Jeff Johnston 2013-01-31 21:44:45 UTC
Description of problem:

In F18, the default colors for tooltips have changed in the Adwaita theme.  The old background used to be a light blue and the foreground, black.  Eclipse, both from Fedora and upstream is not somehow recognizing the system colors for tooltip windows and is writing them with black/grey foreground text which makes them impossible to read.  In addition, html text links are defaulted to a dark purple and they are also extremely difficult to read on a black background.

While it is possible to try and fix Fedora Eclipse, it may be difficult to get a fix into upstream at this point as Juno SR2 has just put out RC2 and SR2 releases on Feb 22nd.  I will post an upstream bug to see if it is possible to fix it.

If the changes to the Adwaita theme are intended and desired, is it possible to have an AdWaita-classic theme that Eclipse users can use?  Switching to high contrast mode works, but it is rather ugly looking.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

1. Install the eclipse-cdt package on f18.

2. Start eclipse (eclipse -data /home/YOURID/workspace-test &)

3. Go to menu File->New->Other Project->C/C++->C++ Project

4. Name the project hello and choose Executable->Hello World ANSI C++ Project and choose the Linux gcc toolchain.  Hit Finish.  If asked to switch to C/C++ Perspective, do so.

5. Replace the hello.cpp file contents in the editor with:

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
class A {
	int v;
	int w;
	int x;

int main() {
	int k = 9;
	A *p = new A();
	p->w = 5;
	p->x = 4;
	cout << "!!!Hello World!!!" << k << endl; // prints !!!Hello World!!!
	return 0;

6. Hit the Hammer icon to build the project or click Project->Build Project

7. Open the project up in the left tree view and find the Binaries folder and open it.

8. Right click on the binary and select Debug as...-> Local C/C++ Application

9. Step over lines in the debugger until you get to the line p->x = 4;

10. Hover over p and you will see that the class is shown with the top line selected in blue, but subsequent lines are hidden written in black.

Thanks for the detailed instructions to reproduce.
This was indeed fixed with the fix I mention in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=903352#c4 - attaching a screenshot for reference.

I was waiting for a new GTK2 release before releasing a final 3.6 update for gnome-themes-standard. I'll try to get this moving in the next couple of days.
