So, I'm using a system with Fedora 20 installed, running a KDE 4.14.7 desktop. (I don't have root access so please no complaints about why I don't just upgrade my distro.)
I have just installed Eclipse Mars.1 (in my home directory), and it runs fine, but - the tooltips I get (e.g. hover line error descriptions) appear as black-on-black (!)
I've seen some similar complaints online, from several years ago, about this problem on Ubuntu systems, but that's not me... also, note that I'm not root, so I can't change any KDE or GTK system-wide defaults, only personal settings.
What can I do?
- I've seen suggestions to use "gnome-color-chooser" and fiddle with its settings, but I don't have that.
- I've tried changing the KDE tooltip background, no effect.
- I've tried the Eclipse Color Theme add-on, and with some themes the background is dark gray, or the foreground color is dark gray; but I still can't edit just that (and dark gray on black is not good enough either).
- None of these suggestions have worked either.
