This issue has been there for a long time and finally thought of posting it. I use Eclipse IDE for development. The IDE looks nice and pretty on Windows and Mac but for some reason ubuntu it looks HUGE. Pics attached.
First I thought may be its the theme. So, I played with gtkrc file of the themes I use but no luck. I am wondering what enforces the tab view? for some reason looks like all menu items are being padded.
I was able to turn down the tree view etc so it looks normal but I am still stuck with large tab and file bar.
