iReport Eclipse Plugin on Linux

I am trying to run the iReport 1.0 plugin for eclipse on Suse Linux 10.1.

 

I have successfully downloaded it and installed it into Eclipse 3.2.1. I have also downloaded and successfully run iReport 1.2.7 stand-alone, so it has successfully created the .ireport directory in my home directory. However, when I try to run the eclipse ireport via the wizard I get the error dialog:

 

Cannot find iReport home directory. Please run iReport at least once and retry.

 

Does the plugin work on Linux?

I have the same issue with the 1.0 plugin on Ubuntu Linux. I ran the standalone iReport 1.3.0, and it created /home/jdavis/.ireport/, but the eclipse plugin cannot find this directory.

 

Cannot find iReport home directory. Please run iReport at least once and retry.

 

I think this plugin does not work on Linux.

I solved this problem.

 

I edit my .bashrc file to have this line

export IREPORT_HOME=/path/to/where/iReport/is/installed

 

and restarted eclipse.

 

However, now when I launch iReport from eclipse, it hangs for a while, then displays the error:

 

iReport is taking too much time to start... retry later.

iReport standalone works great on my system.
