  1. Hi there, thanks for the themes. Just a quick question, the syntax highlighting in your themes only work for Java, since when I open files in C++ or Python, I get black foreground fonts. So what's the quickest way to incorporate other languages also to the theme?

  2. Hi Amir,

    The problem with other languages is that they have different syntax rules. So The specific Java syntax coloring rules don't carry over exactly the same. The file 'org.eclipse.jdt.ui.prefs' can be renamed to 'org.eclipse.cdt.ui.prefs' at best for C/C++. If you open up the files you'll see a bunch of java_* specific settings; maybe Eclipse will have better cross language support in future releases.

    PHP, and other languages in general, can't import these files correctly. The best one can do is go manually and set the colors (For example the Zenburn color scheme: http://victorgavin.co.uk/zenburn) for their language of choice. From there you can export org.eclipse.*dt.ui.prefs file and org.eclipse.ui.editors.prefs for others to use.

    For more information see my 2nd comment regarding C/C++. Hopefully the Eclipse developers will fix some of these problems (although again is difficult to support a unified theme export for many languages)

  17. Thanks for posting these themes :)

    They inspired me to start with an Eclipse plugin to manage color themes. Right now it supports the plain text and Java editors and the themes Inkpot and Zenburn:

    http://github.com/fhd/eclipse-color-theme

    I'm currently adding support for more editors, probably at least XML, HTML, CSS, JavaScript and C++.

    Close Eclipse, delete org.eclipse.jdt.ui.prefs and org.eclipse.ui.editors.prefs, open Eclipse. It will revert back to the original theme.

  23. Sorry to ask this question, but it seems I'm having problem installing your theme in my eclipse. I'm a linux user, specifically, ubuntu 10.10. Can you make a guide on how can i install it? i really want to use your theme. I tried locating the files in /usr/lib/eclipse but i can't find the files to be replace or overwrite.
