Eclipse menu does not appear in Ubuntu 14.04

Tested with Ubuntu 14.04, Eclipse Kepler SR2

Eclipse itself works fine but menus File, Edit etc. does not open and cut off.

To fix this, open eclipse.desktop file for edit. It's located at


or at /usr/share/applications/eclipse.desktop

Find the line Exec=… and replace the whole line with

Exec = env UBUNTU_MENUPROXY = /opt/eclipse/eclipse

replace /opt/eclipse/eclipse with a path to your Eclipse.
