Allowing running as root is not a proper solution. Why does this fail?
Comment 2 Hough.CR 2011-06-27 07:38:38 UTC
I have no idea. Running as root wasn't meant to be a solution it was just one thing I tested to see what might be wrong. I'm absolutely stumped.
Comment 3 Hough.CR 2011-07-18 08:25:49 UTC
If X is started by root then any other user starting eclipse will fail with the errors listed above. At a guess GDK can't use another's resources. This is a wild guess though as I'm not at all familiar with GDK. As a workaround, don't startx as root or edit /usr/bin/eclipse-x.x. Perhaps someone who knows GDK can tell if this is intentional behavior or not. The root check really needs to be expanded or removed.

Closing as this version is ancient and the package has been removed from the tree. If the package ever returns and this issue persists, please reopen.
