Eclipse UI theming issue

I had some issues with the theming of eclipse juno on linux. I’m running with a dark GTK theme, and the tabs were all light, and blurry even though i told eclipse to use GTK theme in the preferences. I finally found this bug ticket over at

The suggestion is to remove all *.css files used for styling. It worked for me:

rm eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.platform_4.2.1.v201209141800/css/*.css
