Eclipse wsdl editor hangs on Arch Linux

Hi,

I have been facing this problem for some time now. I have Arch Linux + Openbox on which I have Eclipse JEE installed which I use for Java/JEE Development and runs on Oracle JDK 7. This problem I am facing for quite long time now. When I open wsdl file in eclipse and try to switch mode from design (graphical view ) to source (text view) or vice versa, Eclipse hangs.

To be very sure , I tried
Oracle JDK 6 and 7
Various Eclipse version (Indigo, and Juno) downloaded from eclipse site.
I also tried AUR package of Eclipse jee. https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/eclipse-jee/
My own Arch Linux + OpenBox installation.
I also tried other Arch variant distros which uses Openbox for example ArchBang http://bbs.archbang.org/viewtopic.php?id=3745
I also discussed this on eclipse forum. http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/t/448653/
Yesterday I tried one more Arch variant distro Manjora. But problem remains same.

I have not faced this problem on other distros which use Openbox. So I think problem is not with OpenBox. I think there is some bug in Arch Linux which is making eclipse to hang one opens wsdl file. Should I file bug?

Re: Eclipse wsdl editor hangs on Arch Linux

A little late, but I have experienced this problem too and I found that after doing a "downgrade" of gtk2 to 2.24.10-3, it starts to work again. The command was:

[root@localhost]# pacman -U gtk2-2.24.10-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz 
loading packages...
warning: downgrading package gtk2 (2.24.14-1 => 2.24.10-3)

looking for inter-conflicts...

Targets (1): gtk2-2.24.10-3

(1/1) upgrading gtk2               

I have uploaded the package here: gtk2-2.24.10-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz in case it helps somebody.

I was having the same issue and the above solution by neowinx seems to have solved it! Thanks for posting your solution, I've been looking for a fix for a couple weeks before coming across this. How did you determine the GTK2 was the issue? Thanks again!

Re: Eclipse wsdl editor hangs on Arch Linux

I had this problem with the wsdl editor freezing too. I used the vm arg workaround: -Dorg.eclipse.swt.internal.gtk.disablePrinting
