|Can't create new java project [message #263980]

I've been using Eclipse on Windows and Ubuntu for a while now, and have
just installed it on CentOS. I'm using the PHPEclipse plugin, and have
been successfully working on PHP projects for several months using this
Recently I tried to create a new java project using the wizard and it
doesn't work (clicking "next" after the first wizard step fails to
proceed). The eclipse error log shows a null pointer exception:
(note - a more helpful error message here would be nice, instead of having
to dig through the logs. ... just a thought)
And, (this is key!) When I run it as root, it works just fine, which makes
me think it's a permissions problem.
Eclipse Europa installed in /usr/lib/eclipse with PHPEclipse plugin
Workspace is in my home directory.
Java is Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_06-b02)
OS is CentOS 5
I'm looking forward to any help/suggestions.
Thanks in advance,

Try installing eclipse into ~/eclipse instead of /usr/lib/eclipse, and
everything should work fine. Or, fix the permissions in the eclipse/ dir
such that users can write there (configuration data must be added when
plugins are installed (such as phpeclipse).
I only ever use Eclipse installed in my home dir, and never run into
permission issues. BTW, Eclipse Ganymede SR1 (3.4.1) is out in a couple
weeks. Might be time to upgrade -- and yes, phpeclipse works for 3.4 if
you install from the nightly update site,

It's hard to believe that you are in the Java perspective but you don't
get the New Java Project wizard. I suggest you simply start from a new
install (http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/). 'Eclipse Classic' probably
does the trick for you.
