I am currently using Eclipse 3.4 on an Ubuntu 9.04 machine. I can only run eclipse as root and not as a normal user. The error I get when I use it as a normal user is :

/home/user/eclipse/configuration/org.eclipse.osgi/bundles/247/data/listener_1925729951/artifacts.xml (No such file or directory)
    at Method)


The only two plugins installed are : 1) Subversion 1.6 2) WASCE 2.1 Adapter (Application Server)

However it works fine when ran as root

Any solution ?

I'd check the permissions of the plugin files in the eclipse folder (wherever you installed it). Perhaps your user account doesn't have access.

Thank you. I had installed Subversion as root and that caused the problem. – Manish Mathai Dec 25 '09 at 8:37
