Problems with Eclipse buttons in Ubuntu 9.10

Just found this post which deals with the exact same problem that I have been fighting with…

After upgrading to Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) some buttons no longer work in Eclipse 3.5. Clicking has no effect but keyboard shortcuts still work.

Create a script to start eclipse with the following export…

#!/bin/sh
export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1
/opt/eclipse-3.5/eclipse

… and remember to change the path to where your eclipse is located.
