Comment 87 for bug 618587

One can get this to work.

This seems to work correctly on my set up (I am using Kubuntu 12.04 with the KDE version of appmenu (which uses the same library as Unity as far as I know).

After a clean install for Eclipse 3.8, this does not work, but after changing the eclipse.ini to my default settings, it started working. Unfortunately, I do now know which setting fixes the issue.

Here is my Eclipse.ini:

-startup
