Menu missing in Lotus notes 8 and Eclipse in Unity
I downloaded Eclipse Indigo from the Eclipse website and tried to run it on Ubuntu 11.10, but the menus do not show up in the global menu or in the app.
Before anyone marks this a duplicate, I have already seen the other questions and the bug reports on both Launchpad and the Eclipse bugtracker. I have tried the workarounds (unsetting
UBUNTU_MENUPROXY or setting
APPMENU_DISPLAY_BOTH) suggested in each of those threads. None of the suggested workarounds worked and every single thread just suggests the
UBUNTU_MENUPROXY workaround followed by lots of "thanks that worked". I've even tried running Eclipse in environments that don't have a global menu like gnome-shell or the gnome fallback session and it still doesn't show the menu anywhere.
The only thing that works is running Eclipse with
sudo (which is a terrible idea).
This is very frustrating and I am wondering if anyone has any other solutions because this makes Ubuntu pretty much useless for any type of development requiring Eclipse.
