I use Ubuntu 7.10 and there is a problem with Eclipse (3.2 and 3.3). When I'm in Project Explorer view or Navigator view, I cannot expand/collapse folder with right/left arrow keys. I have to use the space bar for that. Has anyone else faced this issue? Is there any solution for this?
In some cases on Linux, the Eclipse key definitions conflict with the GUI desktop (gnome, kde or whatever) key definitions. In most cases, Eclipse loses.
There are times when I suspect that there's a few key definitions that just weren't defined properly in Eclipse, too, but I've never made a serious study of the matter. Most of the popular keystrokes work.
