Running Mint RC1; installed with no problems and have bumped into only one thing that has me completely stumped: I normally pull down the stock Eclipse JEE install for 32-bit Linux from eclipse.org and stand it up under /opt/eclipse. Under Mint RC1, portions of the Eclipse UI don't seem to respond to the mouse. The problems render it nearly impossible to use. Two of many examples:
1. Try to set the default font for the basic text for structured text editors under preferences. If you click the corresponding entries in the preferences panel to find that font and then click the "Edit" button on the right side of the preferences panel... nothing. Double click the font entry, however, and a font selection dialog comes up.
2. Configure an additional software install URL: click the "Add" button on the right side of the preferences panel, and the window for the site title and URL pop up. Fill in those fields and click the button to save it... nothing. Tab to that same save button so that it has focus and hit enter. It works and adds. With the new site selected in the list of sites, click the button to test that site... nothing. With that test button having focus, hit enter... it tests the connection.
I didn't experience these problems with Ubuntu 9.10 on this same box earlier this week when I installed this same version of Eclipse. These same kinds of problems make it impossible for me to then go install new Eclipse plugins from the site I just added.
I am pulling down the Eclipse install via Synaptic to see if I bump into the same problems there, but this one has me completely stumped...
Can anyone else confirm this or provide any insight?
Following up: the Eclipse installed via Synaptic does not exhibit this same behavior, but also does not include all of the various plugins that come with the stock Eclipse JEE. I'd love some insight as to what this is.
More follow-up: Apparently some people /have/ experienced this under Ubuntu 9.10 (see http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php? ... clipse.org
); invoking it as
solved the problem.
