Just installed Darkest dark theme, and it looks great. one small problem.
When I start eclipse my “package explorer” has white background instead of black (pics)
I can fix the “package explorer” go in to eclipse -> preferences -> Appearance and push “apply”, then the background loads in black. But next time i start eclipse it is white again.
i have it installed on 2 computeres with the same result
Eclipse IDE for Java Developers
Version: Oxygen.3a Release (4.7.3a)
Build id: 20180405-1200
os: Windows 10June 4, 2018 at 2:42 pm #589985
@denieru, Can you try the following?
1. Go to Preferences > DevStyle > Color Themes
2. Check “Force Colors”
3. Apply and Close
Let me know if that does the trick.

Sorry that dosen’t work. checking the “force colors” option on, then “apply” and then “apply and close”, the background is still white. When i go to the “force colors” option again after, the “force colors” is unchecked again. it’s the same if I restart eclipse right after the option changeJune 4, 2018 at 5:04 pm #590035
Thanks for trying that out, “Force colors” is a one time application, it being unchecked afterwards is expected (we don’t want to keep forcing colors every time).
It’s also possible that a third party plugin is forcing a preference in for the project explorer background, do you have any other outstanding plugin installed?June 5, 2018 at 10:46 am #590093
Your welcome 🙂
Here is a list of what i have installed on eclipse ad this moment.
If there is something more specific you want, I’ve be happy to helpJune 7, 2018 at 6:04 pm #590388
For me it’s the Package Explorer view (only when it is placed on the top left of the left-most screen, i.e. the first view generated). When I minimize and restore the view (i.e. not the containing window), the style is applied (even with the force colors enabled). When I moved the Package Explorer view to a different location, the style is applied on startup. Hopefully this helps raise visibility to the issue. By the way, I also have a similar list of plugins as denieru.June 7, 2018 at 6:10 pm #590390June 8, 2018 at 9:40 am #590524
I installed the eclipse photon and changed theme to the dark. Background is dark.
But when I installed devstyle and changed theme on the darkest, I got a white background in some form fields.
In Oxygen.3a (3.4.7) is all right.
I use Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
