I downloaded Eclipse from Eclipse page and extracted it in Downloads directory. When I run Eclipse as normal user then application behaves strange:
$ ./eclipse Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"
- Eclipse can't resolve symbols in source code and marks them as invalid
- GUI looks like in other KDE applications
- when I quit program, then there is some error about write protection
Problems occurred while trying to save the state of the workbench. Could not write metadata for '/ab'. /home/user/workspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.resources/.projects/ab/.markers (Permission denied)
I encountered some other problems like write problems during update.
However when I run Eclipse as super user:
$ sudo ./eclipse
then everything works as it should and GUI looks different (GTK is loaded or what? I don't know).
I tried to give 777 permission to all files in Eclipse directory but it didn't work. And I didn't install Eclipse anywhere, just downloaded and extracted. I tried also to download Eclipse with apt-get but there was the same problem. How to make Eclipse work correct?
I use Kubuntu 11.10.
