Odd Display of WindowBuilder (Ubuntu 11.10, Eclipse 4.2, Compiz) [message #778344] Thu, 12 January 2012 13:39 Go to next message

I installed WindowBuilder in the latest integration build of Eclipse 4.2.

As I tried to open a SWT application in SWT Designer, Eclipse prompted me something about Compiz and if it can render it into a separate Window. Unfortunately I did not note done the exact text.

The palette of WindowBuilder is rendered strangely, see attached screenshot.

I currently don't know if the issue is created by the Compiz Window manager, Eclipse 4.2 or Ubuntu 11.10.

WindowBuilder runs fine in Eclipse 3.7 but here I also didn't get the Compiz popup.

Is there a way to turn this Compiz rendering off to check if that solves the issue?

Thanks. Looks like it has been confirmed as an SWT issue.

Yes. Workaround is available:

If you add the following line to the end of the
eclipse.ini file before launching 4.2, things will draw properly:

-Dorg.eclipse.swt.internal.gtk.useCairo=false
