I have downloaded and ran the 64-bit linux version of the Fuse IDE 2.1 installer, and installed version FuseIDEEnterprise-2.1.462 to my /opt folder.
I am able to start the instance and run through the Demo in Chapter 3 of the "Fuse IDE: Using Fuse" document which basically involves the following steps to create a simple FUSE IDE project based on a mvn archetype:
To create a Fuse project:
1. Fuse IDE Using Fuse IDE Version 2.1
Select File → New → Fuse Project to open the New Fuse IDE Project wizard
2. Select camel-archetype-spring as the project type inside the wizard. Accepting the defaults for all other options.
3. The wizard generates the project source and pom.xml just fine. I am able to open the java source files, the pom.xml file etc, just fine. The issue occurs when i attempt to open the src/main/resources/META-INF/spring/camel-context.xml file with the FUSE IDE Routes Editor. The routes editor will appear and the route will be displayed visually, but shortly thereafter the screen goes grey and the entire IDE remains unresponsive.
FWIW, the issue happens for all 4 of the project types supported by the Fuse IDE route
Also, I am able to open the camel-context.xml file with the XML Editor without issue.

Eclipse has a view named "Error Log". Can you try to open this, and see if you can find any errors/exceptions etc.
You can find this error log view from the menu, there is a "open view...", where you can find any of the views in Eclipse.
