bug while running simple tutorial example

Questions and comments related to the Pentaho Kettle and Spoon plugins

I am trying to get the hpcc plugin for Spoon to work in linux environment using Ubuntu 14.04. I am following the steps as specified in the "Simple Tutorials" example in the documentation. I keep getting a bug while double clicking on any of the modules under the hpcc systems plugin. Following is the stack trace of the same:

An unexpected error occurred in Spoon:
java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.pentaho.di.ui.job.dialog.JobDialog.setShellImage(Lorg/eclipse/swt/widgets/Shell;Lorg/pentaho/di/job/entry/JobEntryInterface;)V

It seems it is a bug in the setShellImage function or may be there is some configuration I am missing. Can you advise me here on how to resolve the issue?

Please let me know if you need any more information regarding this error message, I have been following the documentation given through ... ntegration. I can't set any attributes in the "Global variable" module as a double click or edit the properties option throws the error specified above.

What version of pentaho are you using the plugins with? It looks like a compatibility issue. The function (org.pentaho.di.ui.job.dialog.JobDialog.setShellImage) is there to set the icon for the popup window for the plugin. It looks like that function doesn't exist in that version of pentaho.
