Hi DaniWeb,

I've just tried to install eclipse on my linux laptop. I have oracle java 7 installed, but I am getting an error (see below). Can anyone point me in the right direction to get Eclipse installed? I don't know what to do next.

BTW, I'm using "linux Peppermint", this should be very similar to Linux Mint.

Thanks in advance,

logfile url is wrong

There is nothing wrong with the URL.

Need more details; can you post the URL where you downloaded Eclipse from? A few things you can check for:

  • Check whether you have a 32 or 64 bit OS
  • Ensure that the correct version of Java is installed
  • Ensure that you are downloading the correct version of Eclipse (x86 vs x86-64)

Thanks for the reply s.o.s.

  • I am using 32-bit os. (IBM x40 thinkpad)
  • Typing "java -version" into the terminal gives me:

    java version "1.7.0_13"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_13-b20)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 23.7-b01, mixed mode)
    
  • I thnk the version of Eclipse is x86 because, I installed it from Synaptic Package Manager (not from a url).

The next step should be checking if the libs exist or not. Try out the suggestion in the following thread (i.e. creating a symlink for the missing directory assuming you have the libswt files). If it still doesn't work, clean remove Eclipse using your package manager and try the installation again.
