SDK look and feel on Linux dark theme

Hello.

 

I am struggling for some time now to change the theme of the SDK shipped with the Vivado 2018.2 but to no avail.

The picture below shows how SDK look if I use any kind of dark theme. The only time SDK looks decent is when I am using Adwaita light theme. So far I have not found any way to change only SDK theme on launch.

 

I don't think it is relevant, but I am using Manjaro 17.1.12 linux on GNOME desktop manager, tho it look the same on i3 window manager.

 

Any help is well apreciated. Thank you.

I like Deep Black theme in the Eclipse if it was for Vitis and SDK as well.

However, most studies have shown that dark characters on a light background are superior to light characters on a dark background (when the refresh rate is fairly high). For example, Bauer and Cavonius (1980) found that participants were 26% more accurate in reading text when they read it with dark characters on a light background.

I remember from the workplace safety courses I've taken that dark text on a light background is healthier for your eyes.

It also depends on the lighting in the environment though.
