RE: [eclipse-dev] I Do not succeed in running Eclipse on Linux Red Hat 7.1

Eclipse on motif requires Open Motif.  It does not currently work with lesstif.

The necessary motif libraries are shipped with eclipse and are located in the root of the eclipse installation.  To use them, just set your LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to the eclipse root before launching eclipse.  The error you have reported is most likely because you are running lesstif which I believe is what is shipped with Red Hat 7.1.

There are many posts on this topic in the Eclipse newsgroup.

And that a Motif clone (eg LessTif) can do the job if one doesnt have a
Motif license ?
I am currently investigating how to install LessTif.  Any advice very
Many thanks, Wout Perquin
