I just installed Eclipse IDE using Ubuntu Software Center and Synaptic, but in both cases it don't shows for example "Java Project" in the wizard (File > New), just shows General and CVS. How can I fix that?

  • I had the same problem. I used Tato's solution: sudo eclipse -clean This worked fine. However, this opens eclipse as root. I think that simply running this in terminal: eclipse -clean would most likely do the trick. – star-labs May 7 '13 at 18:46

It seems you have installed just eclipse-platform. For Java development you need to install:

apt-get install eclipse-jdt
  • Hi! It's already installed @willi – juniorgarcia Jan 4 '13 at 13:38
  • Have tried a fresh workspace? – Willi Jan 4 '13 at 14:17
  • Yes, continue with the same problem – juniorgarcia Jan 4 '13 at 14:34

I run in a terminal sudo eclipse -clean with this I could see the other resources, then close eclipse and run again eclipse normally and let me see the other projects. Maybe this work for others.
