[resolved] background coloring off on Linux

I am running Data Integration 5.2.1.r95165 on Ubuntu 12.04.
There are two issue I'm having with colors:
(1) on the Component tab, the background for non-selected tabs (Advanced Settings, Dynamic Settings, View, Documentation) is dark gray, making it almost impossible to read the text.
(2) When an alert or warning icon shows up on a component, mousing over the alert icon displays a completely black dialog, hiding any text that may be there.
I've gone to Window > Preferences >> General >> Appearance >> Colors and Fonts. I changed every dark color to a light color, but these two items were completely unaffected.
Is there some other place to change these colors?

Hi etech,
Could you go to your Ubuntu 12.04.Appearance> Theme> Colors and then change the system back-group from black into other colors? In my opinion, it is the problem of system.
My environment is Ubuntu 10, which maybe different with Ubuntu 12.04,however, I think it should be in Appearance.
