Question Fedora and Eclipse-No Application Window Decorations

I am running Fedora Core 5 using the Fluxbox WM, and have Java 1.5 installed. When I start Eclipse ( which came with my distro ), it starts fine, but the application window is not there., What I mean is I see Eclipse, but it does not have a title bar, maximize or minimize or close "icons", and I cannot resize the window.

Any clue as to what I can do to fix?

It sounds like you're using rpm installed eclipse (and likely running on gcj). My advice is first check what happens with Sun's java and upsteam eclipse (just untar it in your home dir) to see if it's a gcj bug or bug with the Fedora build (though this is unlikely). If the problem persists it's likely some kind of eclipse bug (probably swt related).

That is IT

Yep. That was it. After installing the new Eclipse 3.2 last Friday at work, I tried installing it at home since it was so much better than previous versions. The version I downloaded installed and ran without a hitch!

Thank you for your help.


eclipse, fedora, fluxbox
