I am running Eclipse Indigo on 64 bit Kubunu Linux.|
I start with the version that is installed by the package manager
using root access,
but most of the time I run Eclipse as non-root, including installing updates.
I tried installing updates and after I restarted
my Java perspective went away.
I tried to get the Marketplace client to appear by manually installing it
and it also did not appear.
I tried running Eclipse from the command-line and there was no output.
I have looked for a log in my home directory and not found one.
I have tried eclipse -clean. No difference.
The only perspectives I have now are <Java> (which is not the Java perspectiv)
eclipse -consolelog -debug
Start VM: /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/bin/java
Shared configuration location:
file:/home/marwolf/.options not found
Time to load bundles: 3
Starting application: 2699
Application Started: 7771
I have repeatedly tried moving ~/.eclipse and workspace and starting again
which fixes things temporarily but of course I have to reinstall everything.
This has happened multiple times and I would really like to figure out
how to fix it or avoid it.
How do I determine what the problem is?

If you have read-only access to your Eclipse installation, installing new software should work alright but some update-operations are actually supposed to fail, since this setup is intended for cases where an admin forces you to use a specific version / configuration of Eclipse. So, yes, looking for errors in the workspace log might give hints on the failed update.|
If lock-down of a specific Eclipse version is not intended installation as root is actually questionable. There should be no need to install as root. So if you want the exact version that is packaged for Ubuntu, you may prefer to stick to that version. If, OTOH, you want to update at your own pace, you will be better off directly downloading and installing from Eclipse.org using your regular user account.
