    Default Eclipse in Linux?

    Hi,
    I am trying to migrate to Linux lately, after my Office applications, I downloaded Eclipse and started to use it.
    I realized one thing, it doesn't suggest me anything like it did in Windows. Actually this could be good for me, but I want it to suggest me stuff

    What am I missing here? A plugin? Another package?
    PS. I am a Linux noob.

    I don't think this has much to do with Linux, more just eclipse setup in general.

    You have to specify where that information is (I assume you're talking about autocomplete and javadoc info). Let me see if I can figure out where that is...

    Try going to your project explorer, where it says "JRE System Library". Under that should be rt.jar. Right click that, go to properties. In that window, go to Javadoc Location. I use the Javadoc URL of Java Platform SE 6. Try that, because I could be wrong.

    Thank you for your answer.
    I did what you said, but there was already the JavaDoc6 link.

    But I have been looking deeper into this and it appears autocomplete and javadoc didn't appear because of my workspace. I had to create another workspace and import my old projects into the new workspace again. That solved the problem.
