View Full Version : Eclipse problems compiling

March 12th, 2009, 12:48 AM
Whenever I use eclipse (in addition to the sluggish startup) I notice that I can't run any programs. Whenever I write something and save, then it autobuilds, the run command produces my program... but nothing works, not even the exit button. I've tried the same programs with javac and java and they work fine.
Does anyone know someway to fix this?

Which version of eclipse are you using?
The version in the repositories is very old.
eclipse uses its own compiler so there could be minor differences to javac
The other thing is that some versions of Java have issues with compiz in Linux, so try turning off desktop effects and see if that helps.
