Eclipse-3.5.1 on Fedora 12

There seems to be an incompatibility between Eclipse-3.5.1 and GTK that ships with Fedora 12

Often buttons don't react on mouse click. When the botton is highlighted,hitting enter however works.

$ yum list installed | grep gtk2
gtk2.i686                           2.18.3-21.fc12                      @updates
gtk2-engines.i686                   2.18.4-4.fc12                       @rawhide
gtk2-immodule-xim.i686              2.18.3-21.fc12                      @updates
libcanberra-gtk2.i686               0.22-1.fc12                         @rawhide
pygtk2.i686                         2.16.0-1.fc12                       @rawhide
pygtk2-libglade.i686                2.16.0-1.fc12                       @rawhide
Various other posts in eclipse bugzilla point out that there might be an incompatibility with gtk-2.17.x and above

This issue seems to be fixed in eclipse-3.6M3

I've been using Eclipse 3.5.1 through the F12 Beta without any of the issues you mention. I've not been looking for any such bugs however.

Please monitor https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=538733

Edit: I also don't see icons in pop-up menus. For example the "Show View" menu in the left bottom corner only shows text

I can confirm that behaviour, I installed eclipse 3.5.1 (x86_64) direclty from the Eclipse website. Most notable are the buttons from the "update" and "install new software" windows.

I hope there's a fix for 3.5, many plugins aren't available yet for it, let alone 3.6...

Hit Space Bar

I'm seeing this as well. It's a bit like the mouse-up event isn't landing. Mashing the space bar completes the click though. So if you find the button depressed and not doing anything, just tap the space bar and everything does continue. Not optimal, but I can do work now.

Edit: Better yet (from the BZ):

export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1; ./eclipse
Edit: This also seems to cause the disappearance of various toolbar buttons. The buttons on the Console view are not present and the debug step/continue controls are also gone. Same fix.

I can use the keyboard instead of the mouse.

How to install Java EE environment into the default Fedora Eclipse?

I download Java EE package from the official website, but maybe something wrong with the installed JDKs, it can't import any classes, including java.lang.Object and java.util.* ... I have OpenJDK installed and compile the .java file without any problem. I even tried SUN's JDK, nothing changed... I went to Preference->Java->Installed JDKs, seems that all are normal

Edit: problem solved. I went to the project's property, and found the JRE is not bounded. Now I can working with Eclipse :-)

Actually, the eclipse that I can install with yum work in F12 64bit, only the Eclipse PDT that I downloaded doesn't work correctly.

starting Eclipse with the following command fixed it for me:
> GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=true eclipse

Hab mir einfach einen "Starter" im Panel angelegt der mir Eclipse mit folgendem command staret:

/bin/bash -c 'export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1; /<pathtoeclipsedirectory>/eclipse/eclipse'

Für alle die es gerne über ein Symbol starten würden.

I also have this problem. The above solution works. If you place it in your bashrc, things should work nicely.

edit ~/.bashrc with your favourite editor and add the following
