Hello Everyone!
I just installed Eclipse Kepler (Build id: 20140224-0627) on a freshly installed Lubuntu 14.04 (64bit, 3.13.0-24-generic kernel).
My problem is that I can't get the templates to work. I created a new Java project, class file etc. and typed "sysout" and hit <Ctrl>+<Space>. From what I've understood (I have never used templates before) Eclipse should now automatically convert this to "System.out.println("")" but it doesn't do anything except underline the word with an error message saying "sysout cannot be resolved to be a variable".
I don't know if it's related but the Code Assist completion generally doesn't work before the first dot ("."); If I type "Syst" and hit <Ctrl>+<Space>, nothing happens. Just as soon as I type "System." all the suggestions pop up.
I have absolutely no clue how to fix this and I couldn't find a solution on the web, but maybe someone of you has an idea what to try...

Do you see that template on the Java>Editor>Templates preference page?

Yes, I do. I also tried it with other pre-installed and selfmade templates with the same "result".

SOLVED:
The problem was a really stupid one: Together with the new Lubuntu version came a new preinstalled tool to quickly switch keyboard layouts/languages. And the sortcut to do this was Ctrl+Space. So I could get the Content Assist to work perfectly again by disabling this tool.
