Re: [linuxtools-dev] Why does RPM Specfile Editor is not enabled ?

Hi Lidia,

In Eclipse 2020-06 and later (4.16) there is a new option that is on by default that helps users in this case -

I figured out that latest linuxtools requires java 11.
My problem is fixed. I found appropriate versions
       7.7.0 for eclipse v.4.15.0
       6.2.1 for eclipse oxigen 3a

but why does I've been allowed to install latest
and it tells that installation is successful. It's confusing. A less advanced user may not figure this out.

Thank you
Kind Regards

Subject: Why does RPM Specfile Editor is not enabled ?
Hello forks,

I am trying to find out why does the RPM Specfile Editor is not visible after 'org.eclipse.linuxtools.rpm.ui.editor ' plugin installation on a linux system, on both eclipse Eclipse Oxygen.3a (v.4.7.3a) & Eclipse v.4.15.0 (2020-03-05).

I successfully works on windows system, eclipse 2021-03.
But I don't think that eclipse version or OS matters as soon as it passed installation process.

I compared Configuration's tab and
  1.  When it does not work, the option "open with SpeciFile Editor" is not visible - It shows as [Installed] org.eclipse.linuxtools.rpm.ui.editor ( "RPM Specfile Editor" [Installed
  2. When it works, it has [Active] state

    org.eclipse.linuxtools.rpm.ui.editor ( "RPM Specfile Editor" [Active] 

    So, what could prevent a plugin from being Active? What are the dependencies, why it does not work? I am trying to debug the plugin to find out, but maybe you could give me a quicker replay?

Thank you in advance
Kind Regards
