The selected entry in Eclipse content assist is unreadable because of colours

Not sure if it’s still in time but this might help all of you who are having the same problem, as I had:

Create a file ~/.gtkrc-2.0 and add this content to the file:

style "eclipse_fix" 
base[ACTIVE] = shade(0.7, "#4283d3") 

class "GtkTreeView" style "eclipse_fix"

Then just set Unity a new theme (in Configuration > appearance) and set again to the previous theme (Ambiance for instance). That will read the new file created above and the new color will take effect in eclipse.
