Ziga, I've seen this problem before but I can't remember what causes it. Can you
send me the output of: 'ls -l /usr/share/eclipse/configuration'? That directory
should only have config.ini. If it has other stuff, it's safe to delete
everything but config.ini.

Comment 3 Ziga Mahkovec 2005-05-11 09:04:03 UTC
config.ini was the only file in /usr/share/eclipse/configuration.

However, I reinstalled all eclipse packages from scratch and it works fine now
(I had tried this before, but I left out libswt3-gtk2).  I must have messed up
my installation somehow, sorry for the confusion.
