Thread: Can't Create a New Project in Eclipse

    Exclamation Can't Create a New Project in Eclipse

    I was following the help file tutorial for creating a New Java Project using the Eclipse IDE, but neither the finish, the next buttons do anything when I click them... Does anyone know why this is happening, and how can I fix this completely unacceptable issue?

    Just see if pressing "Spacebar" works instead of mouse clicks in those cases. (You may have to bring the focus to that button by pressing tab keys before that).

    Or you can start Eclipse from a script that includes the line

    GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=true

    before calling Eclipse.

    Thanks GregBrannon & please_try_again, that appears to have solved the problem...

    May I ask what the function of the "GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS" variable is? I'm rather new to Linux, but I'm quite interested in learning its internal functions.
