I've installed Eclipse Mars, and need to install the SVN plugin. When I click menu: Help > Install new software, I select All Available Sites, and normally something happens in the main window, items appearing or activity indicating that it's downloading information.

Now I don't see anything happening. I can click the "select all" button, and then 2116 items are selected. Nothing appears in the window. At first I thought this was a problem with the Dark Theme I used, but changing that to the Classic theme didn't help. Restarting didn't help.

What can I do to install plugins in Eclipse Mars on Ubuntu 14.04?

    Similar thing I'm facing with Mars-v4.5.2 on Ubuntu(16.04LTS x64). – SparKot May 11 '16 at 5:31

The problem here is that Eclipse mars on Ubuntu 16.04 runs so slowly it appears to be hung up. Solution can be found on the Ubuntu SO site...

  • Thanks! I've changed to Netbeans since, but prefer to go back. – SPRBRN Jun 13 '16 at 15:44
