Using WindowBuilder on Linux

Just as a reminder (mainly for myself), until Bug 368543 is fixed you have to start Eclipse with a number of parameters to use WindowBuilder.

# Export this parameter
export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1
# Start Eclipse with these flags
./eclipse -Dorg.eclipse.swt.internal.gtk.cairoGraphics=false
-Dorg.eclipse.swt.internal.gtk.useCairo=false
