Hello,

I can't find anything on the internet, so I hope I'll get the answer here.

I am using Archlinux with Linux 4.2.3-1 and recently updated to gtk3 3.18.2-1. I was developing on Eclipse Mars 1 Version 4.5.1. So pretty much on the edge of stable I think. I recently started developing with a wildfly Server. After updating my OS, Eclipse failed and wasn't able to be executed properly.

  • Properties Pane couldn't be opened
  • Eclipse can't add Servers (hangs)
  • Significant Marketplace-performance problems

So I have now purged GTK3 with all it's dependencies..... (so alot of my everyday applications). Nevertheless I've GTK2 installed where Eclipse runs flawlessly. So my question is: Can Eclipse be configured to use GTK2 on purpose?

Greetings Timo.

Timo,

You can add the following before the VM args in the eclipse.ini

--launcher.GTK_version
