LiClipse is a lightweight Eclipse for (mainly) Python development. For some people the LiClipse menus won’t work out of the box in Ubuntu. Since I spent quite a bit of time tracking this problem down I might as well make a post about it.
Find your liclipse.desktop file by opening terminal and typing:
sudo find / -name liclipse.desktop
The output of the command on my setup was:
Edit the liclipse.desktop file by typing
sudo -H gedit /home/kire/.local/share/applications/liclipse.desktop
Then replace the line starting with “
with a following line
Exec=env UBUNTU_MENUPROXY= /opt/liclipse/LiClipse
NB! The “
Exec=” line might be very long so don’t be intimidated by deleting this.
Save the file.
