System Workbench for STM32

Menu is Unresponsive

I’m running Ubuntu 16.04 with Unity. In System Workbench, nothing happens when I click any of the options on the menu bar at the very top of my screen. Everything on the icon bar works fine, but the menu at the top of my screen is completely unresponsive. I rebooted and the situation persists. I tested another version of Eclipse on my machine and its menu works fine. I reinstalled System Workbench and nothing changed. I have the latest version which I downloaded today.

Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone have an idea of how to fix this?

Hi jjp72,
I’ve noticed something similar on my Ubuntu 16.04, either nothing happen or dialogs were displayed after a huge delay...
Knowing that past versions of Eclipse had issues with GTK3 I’ve put the following lines to my eclipse.ini (before the -vmargs) to resolve this weird behavior.


This should also work by defining the variable SWT_GTK3=0 in System Workbench environment.

Yeah, I sure wish Atollic would defuse that landmine for all of us Linux users.


This is an Eclipse bug, and Atollic is not involved in any way in System Workbench for Linux... There is full explanation of th eproblem, and its solution, in this FAQQuestion. We can just hope the Eclipse team will solve this in a future, not too distant, release...
