QuickTip: Springsource Tool Suite 2.2.1 on Ubuntu 9.10 – Import doesn’t work

Today while working with latest STS on Ubuntu 9.10 I observed that it simply doesn’t work properly. While importing projects, nothing happened. Later I found out that it has to do with a bug on Eclipse 3.5 for which a workaround is available on Ubuntu and it works fine.

Set the following environment variable before you run STS.


export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1

Details of the bug are available here.

    I installed STS on Ubuntu 9.10; it created 4 folders in the specified destination folder – STS, Roo, tc Server and dm Server. How do I start STS – I cannot locate the underlying eclipse program?

    Thanks.

    If you go to STS folder you’ll find STS executable. You can execute the same to run STS.
