    Eclipse Indigo (Java) crashes at start up

    I am using ubuntu 12.04 x64 edition. Yesterday I installed Eclipse through Ubuntu Software Center. After being successfully installed, I can't start it, cause it fails showing a fatal error message. Then I checked the log file which looks like this.
    Code:

    Do I need to install additional package? Or I need to set some environmental variables for those missing libraries. I used Eclipse before on both windows and earlier versions of ubuntu, never seen any such thing. Or should I download the binary from Eclipse site?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Eclipse Indigo (Java) crashes at start up

    Ahh, solved, I was not looking at the right place. How ever, looks like the paths were odd. So the following command worked for me.
    Code:
    ln -s /usr/lib/jni/libswt-* ~/.swt/lib/linux/x86_64/
    for 32 bit version, the last part will be only x86

    I found this solution on stackoverflow
