I've been using eclipse 4.2 (not from packages) without a single hiccup for months already. Now, all of the sudden, eclipse started to misbehave. Can't go into some of the config frames. If I go into configuration->Java->Debug, I see an error like this:
I'm using openJDK as my JDK:
Unable to create the selected preference page
An error occurred while automatically activating
bundle org.eclipse.jdt.debug.ui (146).
I just tried chaning my java home to use jdk 1.5 from oracle but it made no change at all:
$ which java
$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_24"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.11.4) (6b24-1.11.4-1ubuntu0.12.04.1)
OpenJDK Server VM (build 20.0-b12, mixed mode)
I even created a whole new user and started eclipse from there with the same results. This last tip makes me think that there was probably a software upgrade yesterday that broke this thing. You have any idea what's going on? Do you have any idea how I could get verbose output from eclipse about what's going on? I tried running with --debug, also with --clean, also added -Xdebug to eclipse.ini.... none of them did anything.
$ export JAVA_HOME=~/Descargas/java/jdk1.5.0_22/
Thanks in advance.
