Bug Description

Since upgrade of ubuntu from 13.04 to 13.10 a self installed installation of Eclipse Kepler still shows the menu bar,
but clicking on it does not show the menu.
This makes Eclipse useless since there are common actions that can not be activated otherwise.

I found a workaround at askubuntu.com, http://askubuntu.com/a/363237/128851.

I start eclipse from the shell with
"UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0 ~/opt/eclipse/eclipse"
which repairs the menu for me.

Eclipse Java EE IDE for Web Developers.

Hi, I marked this as being a unity-gtk-module bug. The eclipse package in universe also suffers the same problems with integration in the global menu bar, but is already blacklisted in the module and has its menus in window as well.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. This particular bug has already been reported and is a duplicate of bug 1208019, so it is being marked as such.

William: Thanks for looking into this. Btw, the eclipse package in Ubuntu is also affected by this issue, comment #36 in bug 1208019 wonders if it might not be picked up by the blacklist.
