Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 533967
Cannot use official eclipse downloaded from www.eclipse.org under fedora 12
Last modified: 2009-11-10 01:26:41 EST
Description of problem:
I've downloaded and installed the official eclipse 3.5.1 for jee developer from www.eclipse.org (I know I can also use the fedora package but I'd would like to use the official eclipse version).
I can start eclipse but whenever I run a wizard to create something, for example when I'm trying to create a new Java project, when I click on the "next" button I cannot go on the next page of wizard.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download and install eclipse 3.5.1 for jee developer for linux x86_64 from www.eclipse.org
3.Menu File -> New -> Other... -> Java Project
4 Press Next
The wizard don't steps forward on the next page
The wizard goes on the next page where I can enter the name of the Java project...
The problem is presents in every wizard (for example the wizard to create a new Java class)
The problem is also presents with other swt based java application (for examples Apache Directory Studio version 1.5.0)
The problem is presents if I run the java application with openjdk and also with sun-jvm 1.6.0_16
The problem is not present with the eclipse version packaged by fedora. (yum install eclipse-jdt.x86_64)
There are quite a few bugs filed at bugs.eclipse.org about this. There were changes made in GTK that cause issues with SWT. Please try searching bugs.eclipse.org for things like "[GTK2.18]" or "Ubuntu 9.10".
Try running your eclipse.org download like this:
In any case, this isn't a bug in the Eclipse package in Fedora. Please either close as UPSTREAM or move to the gtk2 component.
I've closed the bug as UPSTREAM and added the reference to eclipse bug https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=287307
As you suggested in order to use eclipse 3.5.1 under f12 I've created the following script (eclipse.sh)
