In Windows, WSL2 allows you to run a linux distro (in my case Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS).|
Using the share name \\WSL$\<distr- name>, you can access linux files from Windows.
I have created in WSL2 a directory with sufficient access right. With tools such as Notepad++ (or IntelliJ) (running under Windows) I can then can read and save files via the \\WSL$\<distr- name>\<dir-name> share in Linux/WSL2.
However, Eclipse (20-12) fails. I already can not create a workspace, with the error "Could not launch the product because the specified workplace cannot be created. The specified workspace directory is either invalid or read-only".
If I map the share with a drive letter (which succeeds), I also can not create a workspace (while e.g. Notepad++ can create files).
Why does Eclipse not work with WSL2 networkk shares and for example NotePad++ does?
