Been using ZK Studio with Eclipse for some years without problems.

As soon as I install it in Eclipse NEON (or even MARS) with Ubuntu 16.04, I do a restart (as suggested after an install of a plugin), it works, but next start of Eclipse fails. Only way to start Eclipse is with a new workspace. But then it will fail again on next restart.

There are many Google hits regarding Eclipse problems with GTK 3 and Ubuntu 16.04 but any suggestions in those posts do not help.

Anyone got Eclipse with ZK Studio working on Ubuntu 16.04?

If I remove ZK Studio, Eclipse works fine.

Creating a shell script with an export to tell Eclipse to use GTK2 like below:

export SWT_GTK3=0

/home/bob/eclipse/jee-neon/eclipse/eclipse

seems to fix the problem.

Thanks.

I recently upgraded to ubuntu 16.04 with eclipse (mars haven't tried neon since) and encountered a similar sounding error: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=492371

In order to fix this I had to start eclipse with an additional environment variable: as described in this comment: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=492371#c30

I hope this helps in your case too ... once I upgrade to neon I'll check if this still works as before.

Under windows I haven't encountered this problem yet.

Hello Bobzk,

I did a search in stack overflow and found this solution:

  1. Go to Window>Preferences>General>Appearance.
  2. Change "GTK" Theme for any other theme you like.

Can you try it out?

Best Regards,

Darksu

Hi Darksu,

You sure that is for Ubuntu/Xubuntu 16.04? Can you point me to the stack overflow page you are quoting. I would like to see exactly what they are saying. There is no GTK or NO GTK theme option that I can see.

Thanks,

Bobzk
