Will do on the next release. I haven't done it until now because of users wanting it previously, but actually now there appear to be more who have problems with it than otherwise.

I think line 23 with backup=('usr/lib/eclipse/eclipse.ini') causes a lot trouble when interacting with other packages. The problem is that when you upgrade, it uses the old eclipse.ini file which references files of the previous eclipse version that no longer exist. This requires some quite annoying manual work to fix it. So, I would like to suggest removing it when possible.

Thank you.

Oh, I know and used IDEA. I'm forced by external factors to use Eclipse (and no one wants to maintain it on Arch) :D

No problem, good continuation and dont forget to switch to IDEA one day, you will love it ;DD It's weird when you switch from eclipse to it at first, but you quickly adopt it for all what it does better than eclipse

@M-M I was running into the same issues and indeed downgrading the webkit2gtk package seemed to resolve it. Thanks!

Hello, I was previously using Eclipse 4.23. I updated to 4.24 and eclipse began to crash. I was looking at core dumps and stack traces and noticed mentions of webkit2gtk...particularly I checked if webkit2gtk had been updated and it did - webkit2gtk-2.36.5-1. I downgraded to the last version webkit2gtk was working fine with eclipse, and now eclipse is not crashing. The version I downgraded to was webkit2gtk-2.36.4-2. Was wondering if anyone else having this issue with the latest version of webkit2gtk.

Does not happen here. Have you tried it on a clean workspace?
