2 Months ago I updated my SamsungNC110 to Fedora 25.
At first look Eclipse Mars seemed to work fine.

Yesterday I had to create a new project and then it showed that when I try to create a new java-project, the dialog in which I can enter a project-name, remains blank.
After switching to Eclipse Luna, creating the project and swithing back to Mars again, I tried to edit the project properties.
In the left column I can click on all the items but the content the screen does not change.

I tried reinstalling Mars (with eclipse-installer) but that didn't help.

Is this a known problem?

It's likely a GTK issue. Does resizing the dialog(s) help to make it/themrepaint? Perhaps try adding this before the -vmargs section of the eclipse.ini to force Eclipse to use GTK 2 instead of the default GTK 3:
If that makes it work, then it's yet another GTK 3 issue...

May be a stuupid question: Mars is already out-of-service, and we've just about releasing last supported Neon release. Why in the hell are you trying to use Mars and not Neon? There were LOT of GTK 3 fixes in Neon.
