I am facing a problem with installing plugins in Eclipse on Ubuntu 12.04.
I am using the "Install New Software" feature under the help menu in Eclipse. No matter what update site I provide in the "work with" text box, Eclipse simply gets stuck on pending. There is no error message or error window that pops up.
What have I tried so far :
- I have tried downloading different versions of eclipse but the problem seems to persist across all the versions.
- I have tried the Direct and Native Active Providers in the Window->Preferences->General->Network Connections window. (I have proxy settings configured in Ubuntu which get used in eclipse when using the Native Active provider)
- I was only able to get rid of the problem by connecting to another network through VPN and then choosing the Direct Active provider.
Connecting to another network through VPN seems to be a workaround. Is there a solution that will let me install plugins in eclipse through the "Install New Software" feature without the need to connect to another network?
