Thanks for the logs! Sorry, it was my bad. I didn’t see the attached log the first time (I just missed it). I can’t see anything obvious right now. Your installation is a pretty standard one. I also work with a similar installation every day (including the use of git repositories) and icons look always just fine to me. We will keep investigating this issue.
One thought I have is: The images definitions are stored in a file under your home directory at
<user home>/.webclipse/replacement-images.json, is there any chance that directory gets reset by software you have in your system?July 9, 2019 at 4:10 pm #617594
I can’t think of anything that would be doing that. The timestamp on that file (<home>/.webclipse/replacement-images.json) is March 9th, 2019, so I don’t think it is getting reset.July 16, 2019 at 11:18 am #617950
I have a screenshot (attached) of the issue showing up on another installation, on another machine, with another operating system:
This is on an Amazon Workspaces Linux machine — the output of
Linux a-3qo5tec3wnuxz 4.14.123-111.109.amzn2.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Jun 10 19:37:57 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
The eclipse is jee 2019-06, no additional plugins added other than DevStyle and CodeMix
It looks like eGit (part of the JEE package) may be interfering with DevStyle. The change in color background on things ignored in Git is particularly jarring in the “Dark Gray (Darkest Dark)” theme.

I just made a new discovery — if I turn off the default workspace, I don’t get the issue. In other words, if the DevStyle workspace dialog appears, I don’t get the issue. If I set a default workspace so the workspace dialog does NOT appear, then I DO get the issue.

That’s actually a great lead Alan. Thank you so much for the help investigating it. Then there might be an initialization issue. I will try to replicate right now at my end and see.

Alan, a quick question. Where did you turn off the default workspace from? From
Preferences > General > Startup > WorkspacePage or somewhere else?July 16, 2019 at 11:38 am #617958
Yes, that is where I turned off the defaultJuly 16, 2019 at 11:40 am #617959
Thanks, Alan! I was able to replicate the issue by doing that. We’ll keep investigating and hopefully get a fix soon.
Cheers!July 16, 2019 at 1:41 pm #617969
Alan, we already figured out the issue and we’ve got a fix for our next release. Would you be so kind of trying it out for us? Just to make sure it solves your issues.
To do so:
0. Shut down eclipse.
1. Download and extract the attached
2. Copy over the jar file into your
eclipse/plugins/directory and make sure you override the other one with the same name.
3. Start eclipse and make sure the icons are correctly replaced and the white background color in eclipse explorer is also gone.
Please let me know the results.
NOTE: I was not able to replicate the white background color but the fix will potentially work for that issue as well.

I’m afraid that does not fix it for me.
1. placed com.genuitec.eclipse.startup_184.108.40.206906171242.jar into <eclipse base>/eclipse/plugins
2. there was no existing com.genuitec…jar to replace — only an org.eclipse.equinox…jar
3. starting eclipse after setting a default workspace still shows the same issue
4. I tested on both OSes
icons still revert to the standard eclipse icons if there is a default workspaceJuly 16, 2019 at 6:15 pm #617985
Alan, if there was no existing jar with the same name the patch won’t work. If you installed Eclipse using the Eclipse Installer (oomph), the plugins folder is located in a shared directory defined by oomph.
If you are using a downloaded package (no eclipse installer) the location you mentioned is the right one but DevStyle might not be up to date. Can you check if you have more than one jar with name
com.genuitec.eclipse.startup*?July 17, 2019 at 9:41 am #618017
Alan, if you are using the oomph installer the default location for the plugins folder is

That works, on both machines – thanks!July 17, 2019 at 11:13 am #618025
Awesome! Was the white background issue solved too?July 17, 2019 at 12:32 pm #618028
Yes, it was. thanks!
