comment I can't install update because I need more space
try removing linux-image-3.2.0-37-generic like this: dpkg -r linux-image-3.2.0-37-generic, then run apt-get -f install. now you should be able to update again. remember to deselect the kernel upgrade.

comment Gnome uses qt for rendering
eclipse uses SWT which is pretty dependent on the underlying user library. Even though SWT has Motif support, I don't think you can use it, and it wouldn't gain you much since Motif isn't Qt either.

@Kyle: you can try viewing it from the root user. if that works, you can try mounting with a different umask to allow non-owners to access the directory too
