In Eclipse, I'm trying to set a breakpoint, but only getting a 'set bookmark name' popup

Hi Not sure if this is due to mixing Eclipse with ROS, but while trying to set a breakpoint by double clicking in the left border of the editor on a line in my C++ code I keep getting a popup menu for setting a bookmark name. Right mouse clicking in the left border displays a menu to add a bookmark or a task. This occurs both in the C/C++ and Debug perspectives.

I am able to run the program in Eclipse to completion, I would just like to get use to using the debugging facilities before moving on to more complicated stuff.

I have Eclipse v 4.4.1, running on Ubuntu 12.04. and it is setup (through the use of catkin) to develop ROS (hydro) apps as described at

Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks...

Nothing to do with ROS.

In going back to my development, when I started a debug session, in the upper right hand corner of the debug perspective there is a breakpoints view - this showed that the breakpoints I tried to set actually did get set, even though I didn't get the popup window I was expecting. So, it doesn't work as shown in the tutorials I've seen but it does allow breakpoints. I am considering this solved.
