Eclipse Platform

Version: 3.8.1
Build id: debbuild

64-bit KDE Neon with Eclipse from the distro repos.

Followed the instructions to add the plug-in from the Web site. It says it is enabled, but when I goto Window->Preferences->General->Appearance and expand it, there is nothing showing for color theme plug-in. Just

Colors and Fonts

Label Decorations

Does this plug-in not supprt 3.8.1 on 64-bit Linux or is the menu option hidden under something else?

You can make it work. Install the plugin in Eclipse using Marketplace (Help -> Eclipse Market place -> search Color Theme and click on the install of the select item of the results.

Now, download these xml files from my google drive ( h t t p s :// (dot) com/folderview?id=0B-AMLyxKCEq-YjVPeFpkT1AtYXM&usp=sharing ). On Eclipse go to Windows -> Preference -> Appearance -> Color Theme. In the bottom of the screen click on the ""IMPORT THEME"" and navigate to the files downloaded. Once you do that, select any of the imported themes and it will work.

I also shared many of those XML files with my name and the original XML theme name.

I really like the plug in but it has not been available for a while. When is it going to be available again?

Your plug-in is awesome, I love it. Unfortunately it does not support Oscript - programming language of Opentext Content Server IDE Plug-In for Eclipse.

Please it add, It would be so great!

Eclipse color theme plugin settings are not saved in last few milestones versions of eclipse (Luna, Mars RC.. ), including latest official Mars. Where is actually problem? In Eclipse or plugin?

Installation was so easy, did it by dragging. Went to Window→Preferences→General→Appereance->Color Theme and selected a new theme. On apply or restart, the editor screen blips and comes back to the same theme I have. Any idea how can I get it working ?
