Let the ride begin…: Eclipse button problem with Kubuntu 9.10

I ran into this issue while installing the Google App Engine… a quick description of the problem is that some buttons in Eclipse were not responding (doing nothing) after I upgraded to Karmic Koala, after checking the log file, network connection settings and some other things that didn’t work I decided to ask the oracle (Google) about it and after a while I found a simple and quick solution here.
Just create an executable file with the following content:



 #!/bin/sh  
 export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1  
 /opt/eclipse-3.5/eclipse  

Now back to coding 😉
