The Eclipse LogCat window is not empty, but empty


I am debugging an android app on a device and the LogCat window is blank, but not empty. What I mean by that is there is a scroll bar that looks like stuff is being added to the window, and I can indeed click on a line in the window and it highlights green. Just there is no text, or the text is white.

I really suspect Eclipse colors, but how can I check to see if it is actually a color issue (white on white)?

Yes, I can scroll the blank area.

If you're running on Ubuntu and you're using Eclipse Luna, you should take a look at this:

There are a number of issues with GTK and Eclipse Luna that cause problems, including (for me at least) the one you describe. The recommended solution at the link is to set some environment variables prior to the launch of Eclipse:

export SWT_GTK3=0
