Its really hard to explain in the subject field but take a look at the picture.

Basically, the tooltips in Eclipse show up as big black blobs. I thought it was Java and rolled it back, didnt help.

I also have noticed this in other areas, eg: Inside Pidgin where it displays "You have new mail!" is all blacked out.

I have to post a picture from my phone because I cant get a screen shot of it for whatever reason.

Any help would be great. Thanks!

Fixed:

System -> Preferences -> Appearance -> Themes Tab -> Customize -> Colors Tab -> Tooltip setting

Changed it from black to white

Thank you! This has been bugging me for days and I finally decided to look into it.

I needed to restart Eclipse for the changes to take effect.

No problem :D. It was bugging the hell out of me too when I upgraded to 10.04. I thought it may have been the new nVidia driver which otherwise was working for me perfectly.

Thanks for this post! I thought first that it would be a problem with Java! [-(
