I'm running a Debian-based Linux and had the same problem with impossibly small menu text when using the Arduino IDE version 1.0.5

The solution for me was to edit the arduino script (/usr/bin/arduino on my system) to get rid of the GTKLookAndFeel.

From this:

Code: [Select]
java -Dswing.defaultlaf=com.sun.java.swing.plaf.gtk.GTKLookAndFeel processing.app.Base "$@"

To this:

Code: [Select]
#java -Dswing.defaultlaf=com.sun.java.swing.plaf.gtk.GTKLookAndFeel processing.app.Base "$@"
java processing.app.Base "$@"

thank you, it's work!
problems in bad GTK+ LookAndFeel theme, we can chenge LAF theme for example to Numbus:
Code: [Select]

JAVA_OPTIONS=("-DAPP_DIR=$APPDIR" "-Dswing.defaultlaf=com.sun.java.swing.plaf.nimbus.NimbusLookAndFeel")

or Motif. Mmm... Cutie...
Code: [Select]

JAVA_OPTIONS=("-DAPP_DIR=$APPDIR" "-Dswing.defaultlaf=com.sun.java.swing.plaf.motif.MotifLookAndFeel")

or remove LAF parameter:
Code: [Select]




This change worked for me. (Linux Manjaro 17.1 with KDE Plasma5)
