I’ve just installed the latest Eclipse 3.0RC1 on my Gentoo Linux PC
and apart from other plugins I also installed EclipseColorer
0.6.0 plugins. However each time I selected the
Colorer preferences, I received the error dialog in the
picture. Try as I might, I couldn’t get it to work. Only, when I finally
straceed a Eclipse startup, that I found a hint what
causes the problem.
I used this command for tracing:
strace -f -o /tmp/trace -e trace=open /opt/eclipse/eclipse
And a "
grep colore /tmp/trace" showed me this
open("/opt/eclipse/plugins/net.sf.colorer_0.6.0/colorer.jar", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = 6 open("/opt/eclipse/plugins/net.sf.colorer_0.6.0/os/linux/x86/libnet_sf_colorer.so", O_RDONLY) = 6 open("opt/eclipse/plugins/net.sf.colorer_0.6.0/colorer/catalog.xml", ^ O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory) open("/root/.colorer5catalog", O_RDONLY) = 6 open("/usr/share/colorer/catalog.xml", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory) open("/usr/local/share/colorer/catalog.xml", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory) ...
There’s a missing "/" before the
opt" in the third line and this is, what’s
causing the problem. Once I changed my working directory to
"/" it worked perfectly. In the end I symlinked
colorer-directory from inside the Eclipse
colorer-plugin directory to
