Unable to run Eclipse with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Hi,

I installed Oracle Java JDK 7 succesfully from the Terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java -y
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer


Then I used Ubuntu Software Center to install Eclipse IDE. When I double-click on Eclipse I get dependency errors.

I would like to compile and run Java programs.

See attached error message and the associated log file.

What do I need to do?

Thank you for your help.

You need to install libswt-gtk of some kind. Possibly libswt-gtk-3-java

But, just to make it easier, I paste it here:

I already have libswt-gtk-3-jni_3.7.2-2_i386.deb installed.

This is a 64-bit AMD laptop. Is this the right package for a 64-bit laptop?

Why don't you set what it is complaining . Elsewhere , I found that this works:
Add this line
  -Djava.library.path=/usr/lib/jni/
in  /etc/eclipse.ini

Yes, if it's installed, that's the correct place. It's currently looking in the wrong place

Yes, this is it. If I install a version of Eclipse INTENDED for Oracle Java, it will just work.

Based on your statement I found this, and the install fully worked, and I could run Eclipse:

You can run eclipse jar file with any JVM, but one in ubuntu package is pre-configured to use system JDK/JRE
