I have recently downloaded eclipse-SDK-I20180217-1500-linux-gtk-x86_64 (Photon) and I am having trouble getting Windowbuilder to display widgets on the palette.

I also have an installation of Oxygen 2, with a working Windowbuilder instance.

Using identical source code in Oxygen and Photon, I see the fully populated palette in Oxygen, but an empty palette in Photon.

I have tried everything I can think of - including reading the documentation - but nothing has worked.

Any pointers would be gratefully received.

Cheers, Doug

Oxygen and Photon are more like release versions, they tell us nothing about which features are installed. Does your Photon installation include the same WindowBuilder features as the Oxygen installation?

Thanks for your reply Nitin.

I have installed more options in the Oxygen version, so the two installations are not identical. Attached is a tar.gz containing the configuration details of each installation, in case that helps. As far as I can tell, I have installed in the Photon installation all the software needed by WindowBuilder, but I would be delighted if you could point out something I have missed.

Cheers,
Doug

It looks like you have more in your Photon install. I don't really know anything about WindowBuilder, so I'll request this be moved to its forum.

After reinstalling Oxygen and Photon a few times, I have lost track of what is installed where, so I regret any confusion. Thank you very much for your help. I am looking forward to seeing what the WIndowbuilder forum can tell me.

After battling this problem for days, I finally downloaded Oxygen3 and it worked straight out of the box. Thus, I have solved my problem, but I'm still curious as to why Windowbuilder in Photon refused to display any widgets.

Some hint of what's going on.
