Eclipse, proxies and Kubuntu 10.04

It was not a nice realisation that it took a while to get Eclipse to work on Kubuntu 10.04 and a company proxy. The package that comes from the Ubuntu repository didn't want to install cdt (C++ Development Toolkit) because of some issues with components that should have been installed automatically. I couldn't resolve that, so I downloaded the C/C++ version of Eclipse from the eclipse.org website.

But this version didn't like the proxy. It just wouldn't connect until I found an explanation.

So, in effect you need to add the following line to the eclipse.ini file and after that things should work:

-Dorg.eclipse.ecf.provider.filetransfer.excludeContributors=org.eclipse.ecf.provider.filetransfer.httpclient
