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
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 ://drive.google (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!

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 ?

I really like this app. It makes it easier to see my code. Favorite is a dark theme, which is RecognEyes. As previous reviewer mentioned, you need to tweak the colors a bit in the Window->Preferences->General->Editor->TextEditors->Annotations -> Write Occurences / Occurences -> Change to Text from Highlighted to Box, or simply change the color to Bright Blue.

I really appreciate that this helps reduce the strain on my eyes. However, I do wish that it would apply a theme to Eclipse as a whole instead of just the editor windows.
Submitted by Ehsan Azar on Wed, 2013-04-10 18:02
I started by a theme offered in the website, but had to change few things to make it right for C (dark theme).
Among few things needed to change the tooltip, Annotation (Make it box instead of highlight) , and inactive highlight color. Then I wanted to publish it in the website, but realized they do not get tweaked.

While I appreciate the work and benefit Color Theme represents, I just looked into adding into Eclipse 3.8. It requires 100 MB additional bloat. Really? Thanks, but I'll pass.

When i installed this plugin, changing tabs gets slower, about 2 seconds to load tab. Really irritating...

The plugin allows to change color scheme only in editor window.
The rest still hurt my eyes (Navigator, Package Explorer, consoles etc)
