I posted this question in the C/C++ forum last week but haven't gotten an answer.

I am using Mars.1 with a recent (latest?) CDT on Fedora 23 Linux. I have a Java project defined that will use C/JNI for media. I am trying to create the C files within the Java project, like typical JNI examples. All of that seems to be supported but, the 'New Source File' dialog doesn't seem to allow me to enter or select a folder and I can't continue until I have done that. I have created a dedicated folder under my Java/project src folder within Eclipse (R-click on the src folder, new/other/C/C++/Source Folder) so the IDE should 'know' about the folder. Then R-click in the folder/new/other/C/C++/Source File to bring up the wizard. There are 2 edit fields, one labeled 'Source folder' and the other 'Source file'. I cannot get the IDE to recognize the source folder no matter what I do. The status field either states that the source folder name is empty or that the folder doesn't exist. I have tried entering the folder name relative to the Java src folder (which is where it is) and absolute. When I use the 'Browse' button, nothing is displayed except a status message 'No entries available'. I have verified that the folder that i created has been created on disk in the desired place. The help that is available on the 'New Source File' dialog doesn't address the 'Source folder' field.

Does anyone know how to create new source files?

Thank you,
Chuck Crisler
