I am having a weird problem with Eclipse documentation tooltips. When I startup Eclipse the tooltip works as expected:

But after I press the down button the tooltip turns black:

and stays like that for the rest of the session.

I am using Eclipse Galileo and Ubuntu 11.04 with the classic desktop.

EDIT: I am only experiencing this problem in PHP Development Tools. The tooltips work in Java and Python projects.

The answer from Arkaduysz's works if you correct the second line. the gksu would try to change root's settings I think.:


sudo apt-get install gnome-color-chooser 

run it:


Go to "Specific" tab, check and setup background/foreground colors in tooltip box. Apply & Close.

To fix the color issue in the eclipse package explorer (white font on light grey back), choose "global" tab, and check standard > inputfield > selected and set it to black.
