Updated to version 4.1.1.

@4javier, added suggested fix to desktop file for Gnome desktops.

Because that's the wm_class set in the source for the main window. It's not just a gnome thing, wm_class is a property belonging to freedesktop specification.

@4javier, why is the ending 4 needed? I'm curious about it.

I'll be glad to fix it. I don't use Gnome and I just want to know...

4javier commented on 2019-01-14 14:22

It doesn't work because you forgot the 4 at the end

"StartupWMClass=Spring Tool Suite 4"

Anyway, I don't think that's a correction so critical to deserve a new release on its own. Many people (not me) would be pissed off to re-download and rebuild an heavy pkg like this just for this issue. Keep it for the next source update. Thanks for your attention. :)

@4javier, I just update the .desktop file.

Please, try it out and let me know if anything else needs to be changed.

Thank you!

Please add this line to the .desktop file StartupWMClass=Spring Tool Suite 4 otherwise gnome will not show STS icon into the dash.

@Stramaz, you don't need to install your plugins under /opt. The best way to get plugins installed is by using the "Help --> Install New Software..." and "Help --> Eclipse Marketplace..." options. These install your plugins in your workspace directory under the .metadata (hidden) directory.

I hope it helps!

Hello, maybe e stupid question, anyway... isn't it possible to install updates on the same folder (ie: /opt/sts-4.x.RELEASE)? Otherwise I need to reinstall all plugins on every update of STS... I see also that the previous version folder has been emptied, so useless (if I'd want to run the older one). I'm missing something? Thanks
