Eclipse on Linux

Hi,
In linux if I bring up the eclipse I dont see the eclipse icon in the eclipse title bar. Is this because of gtk limitation?
If I connect to the same linux machine from my windows machine (reflection windowing client) then I can see that icon.
In windows I can see the eclipse icon on the title bar after eclipse cames UP.

Eclipse available at:
http://www.eclipse.org/

I tried ECLIPSE CLASSIC in both windows and linux. Any idea of what happening will be great help.

Thank you,
Ganeshraj.S

Re: Eclipse on Linux

GaneshrajS,

You haven't provided nearly enough information for anyone to usefully reply.

1) What Linux?

2) Which eclipse--provided by the distro or built?

3) What evironment are you trying to use it in?

I'm also of the opinion this is a cosmetic only issue (likely driven by your evironment) and not related to Eclipse.

It's not at all clear why you might be reporting this in an HP forum.

Re: Eclipse on Linux

could also be because of your theme in linux. some themes don't display an application icon, others do. try some other windows like terminals, small editor, calculator etc. to see if they have an icon. perhaps you only noticed it now while using eclipse, but in fact it has always been like that.

Shalom,

Eclipse web site that you note has instructions for what pre-requisites are required. Older RPM based versions were clear with requirements.

Now its delivered by tar file.

I do not believe this is gtk problem.

Please specify exactly:
Distribution of Linux
Version of eclipse
What error messages appear in the window you are starting eclipse in.
