I'm running Mint 14 with MATE and the latest version of Eclipse Juno downloaded from eclipse.org (SR1). The trouble is eclipse is nearly unusably ugly with the Mint-X theme in MATE. See the attached screenshot for an example. The trouble seems to be the backgrounds of buttons (grey) is different from other nearby colors, so things end up looking broken. I've played with the theme settings in eclipse (GTK, Classic, Default) but this doesn't help much.
I previously used Mint 13 with MATE, and I used the Mint-Z theme specifically because eclipse looked much better with it. Unfortunately it looks like Mint-Z is dead in Mint 14, so this is no longer an option.
Has anybody found a good way around this?
