Anyone ELSE have menu items disappear after updating Eclipse?? [message #890041] Wed, 20 June 2012 18:43 Go to next message

Environment: Fedora 17 x86

Since I could never seem to figure out which one(s) caused the issue, I removed all installed Eclipse (Juno), and the .eclipse and workspace folders


yum install eclipse
started eclipse w/o any options
Help > Install New Software
Selected Juno (i.e. http-colon-whackwhack-download.eclipse.org/releases/juno "You cannot use links until you have posted more than 25 messages." Confused . GRR)
Twirled down General Purpose Tools
Selected Marketplace Client
Took all defaults and allowed Eclipse to restart
Checked and Marketplace Client appears

index.php/fa/10371/0/


Help > Check for Updates

"The operation cannot be completed. See the details." which when I check shows:

Cannot complete the install because of a conflicting dependency.
Software being installed: Eclipse Project SDK 4.2.0.v20120528-1648-7T7oDFDPz-3FepdYjG7rhL5Ywq5z-XcjOE8GHugLEIX2y (org.eclipse.sdk.feature.group 4.2.0.v20120528-1648-7T7oDFDPz-3FepdYjG7rhL5Ywq5z-XcjOE8GHugLEIX2y)
Software currently installed: Eclipse Platform 3.7.0.I20120503-1800 (org.eclipse.platform.ide 3.7.0.I20120503-1800)
Only one of the following can be installed at once:
Eclipse Workbench Model 0.10.1.v20120523-1955 (org.eclipse.e4.ui.model.workbench 0.10.1.v20120523-1955)
Eclipse Workbench Model 0.10.0.v20120416-1607 (org.eclipse.e4.ui.model.workbench 0.10.0.v20120416-1607)

blah blah blah


I started near the top of the list provided and installed "Eclipse e4 Rich Client Platform Developer Resources" allowing Eclipse to restart

Note that Eclipse CVS Client will not install, citing insufficient privileges, but saving that possibly for a later post.


Now the error "The operation cannot be completed..." did not appear. Well that's a relief (sort of)...

Next I chose to install "Eclipse Java Development Tools" and...

index.php/fa/10372/0/
Note - no Marketplace


Anyone able to offer some insight on how to get the Marketplace Client back on the menu???

SenseiC bows out

For anyone interested, after my previous post I then applied all remaining updates, restarted Eclipse, removed the Marketplace Client, restarted Eclipse, reinstalled the Marketplace Client, restarted Eclipse... and it still does not appear on the Help Menu. Actually I knew this would happen, but after the "controlled" re-installation of Eclipse for the original post I figured I at least should try the remove/re-install again.

SenseiC bows out
But wait... if you order within the next 10 minutes... [message #890052 is a reply to message #890046] Wed, 20 June 2012 19:54 Go to previous messageGo to next message

Added C++ Development Tools... MercurialEclipse... and the Erlang IDE (with appropriate restarts, of course)...

Went to create a new project:

index.php/fa/10374/0/ versus index.php/fa/10375/0/

Note no Java, no C++, no Mercurial, no Erlang, for that matter basically a whole "lotta" nothing.

SenseiC bows out.

You have an old build. Try Juno RC4 and install your stuff on it. http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/drops4/S-4.2RC4-201206081400/

Will do, though won't have time to do that for several hours.

Thanks for such a timely response... of course I had (wrongly) assumed that running the updates, etc., would have taken care of anything like that and since this got installed with yum directly from Fedora... I'll have to use care I suspect to get that to install properly...

May just remove the whole mess and reinstall to /opt

SenseiC bows out.
The governor just called and pardoned you :-) [message #890092 is a reply to message #890061] Thu, 21 June 2012 04:50 Go to previous messageGo to next message

Spot-on!

Of course installing a tarball yields a distinctly different "installation" than the RPM install from Fedora... but I'd rather have "different" than broken! Very Happy
Oh I'm sorry... the Governor must realized he dialed the wrong number. [message #894618 is a reply to message #890092] Mon, 09 July 2012 20:17 Go to previous message

Well I wanted to post to simply keep the issue alive...

Started taking the more direct approach of downloading the tarball from the Eclipse.org downloads and installing that way using the basic process as described in the article at www.if-not-true-then-false.com/2010/linux-install-eclipse-on-fedora-centos-red-hat-rhel/

Well from time to time things (Marketplace in particular) seem to have a habit if "disapppearing" from my Juno4's Help > menu. I just downloaded the tarball again (though no differences between what I had installed already), whacked the /opt/eclise tree and my ~/.eclipse tree, restored the tarball with the -C /opt as shown above, but after having "the problem" reoccur, I figured I would try to carefully document my steps hoping that the issue arises out of something I have done (or failed to do):

tarball info: 156356823 Jul 9 14:35 eclipse-cpp-juno-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz

So before starting, I used rm -Rf .eclipse and after launching Eclipse I specified a non-existent directory for my workspace (which it created). Given that I did the following:

Version: 4.2.0
Build id: I20120503-1800

Help > Install New Software

Work with: Juno - http://download.eclipse.org/releases/juno

Made sure I had the "Hide items that are already installed" checkbox checked

Twirled the General Purpose Tools down
Checked Marketplace Client

and clicked on Next
Clicked on Next
Accepted the ELUA and clicked Finish

Restarted Eclipse and there I found Eclipse Marketplace


Again Help > Install New Software using Juno - http://download.eclipse.org/releases/juno

Selected Eclipse Java Development Tools

Clicked Next
Accepted the EULA and clicked Finish

Restarted Eclipse


The Welcome screen no longer shows the Marketplace Client and it no longer appeears under Help >

But it DOES appear if I use about Eclipse and look at the Installation Details


So I tried the "Revert" feature (which I didn't realize existed) and PRESTO! Marketplace reappeared.

BTW I downloaded the tarball from www.eclipse.org/downloads/download.php?file=/technology/epp/downloads/release/juno/R/eclipse-cpp-juno-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz

And if anyone's curious:

# uname -a
Linux infosec-lab.localdomain 3.4.4-5.fc17.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Jul 5 20:20:59 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
