I recently moved from Eclipse Indigo to Juno.

I installed the IDE in my Ubuntu 12.04 by downloading the archive from here. Then I created an entry in the unity launcher for Juno as I done before for Indigo. Here is what I wrote in ~/.local/share/applications/eclipse-juno.desktop:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Eclipse Juno
Comment=Eclipse Integrated Developmentm Environment
Exec=~/.eclipse-juno/eclipse -vmargs -Duser.name="my name" 

When I run eclipse from the unity launcher, eclipse does not see environment variables that I set in ~/.bascrc. Instead, if I run eclipse from shell, it can see all the env variables.

How can I fix the problem?

Thanks a lot.

Do you have any solution for that, yet? –  Christian Nov 7 '13 at 7:26
No, I'm sorry. Currently I changed both the OS(13.04) and Eclipse(Kepler) version and the problem does not appear anymore. –  hara Nov 21 '13 at 8:39
