== Eclipse crashes with xulrunner 2.x==
+
== Javadoc section out of date ==
Hi, just installed latest eclipse. It crashed all the time, so I did a bit research:
 
  
http://www.eclipse.org/swt/faq.php#browserlinux
+
The section on javadoc is datedOpenjdk is the default install now, and the wiki references Sun. The default eclipse install points to the Oracle download location for javadoc. Not sure if this works with openjdk yet.
Eclipse 3.6.x and newer:
 
  Mozilla 1.4 GTK2 - 1.7.x GTK2
 
XULRunner 1.8.x - 1.9.2.x
 
WebKitGTK+ 1.2.0 and newer
 
 
 
Here the solution:
 
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=115543
 
since gnome3 the webkit library name changed from libwebkit-1.0.so to libwebkitgtk-1.0.so, so I did
 
# cd /usr/lib
 
# ln -s libwebkitgtk-1.0.so libwebkit-1.0.so.2
 
and
 
-Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.UseWebKitGTK=true
 
works again
 
 
 
Can u add this to the wiki? -- [[User:Der harm|Der harm]] 20:16, 6 May 2011 (EDT)
 
 
 
:No; please read [https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=46887 FIX/FILE BUGS don't IGNORE]. -- [[User:Pointone|pointone]] 22:54, 6 May 2011 (EDT)
 
::Well this workaround [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Eclipse&curid=3647&diff=141228&oldid=138316 has just been added]: what now? I'm not against it, although it could be explained much better and report a link to the forum thread. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 05:43, 14 May 2011 (EDT)
 
:::That workaround does not involve symlinking different so versions, which was my main objection. Users should never be told to do that. -- [[User:Pointone|pointone]] 14:38, 16 May 2011 (EDT)
 
::::Ah that makes sense, I've understood now. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 15:02, 16 May 2011 (EDT)
 
 
 
==Sun JDK==
 
[[Eclipse#Using_Sun_JDK_in_place_of_OpenJDK|This section]] was added in 2009: I would replace it with a link to [[Java]], agree?
 
 
 
Is [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Eclipse&diff=next&oldid=69653 this trick still needed]? If not I'll remove it. (Or move it to [[Java]]?)

==Use plugins manager as root==
 
After upgrading to Eclipse 3.7 from 3.6.2 I apparently lost all my user-installed plugins, because they get stored in ~/.eclipse/[version-dependent-folder]. I would recommend to manage plugins as root user with:
 
 
 
gksu eclipse
 
 
 
This installs them safely in /usr/share/eclipse/plugins/.
 
 
 
Does somebody think this can be dangerous in any way and I shouldn't add it as a warning? I can't think of an alternative except using official/AUR packages.

Javadoc section out of date

The section on javadoc is dated. Openjdk is the default install now, and the wiki references Sun. The default eclipse install points to the Oracle download location for javadoc. Not sure if this works with openjdk yet.
