    After installation, make sure you have xulrunner-2.0 and all the libswt-*-3.6* packages (both the -java and -jni).

    go into /usr/lib/eclipse/debian-swt and run the following

    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/jni/libswt-*

    Now you should be able to run eclipse 3.6 Helios without any problem
    Nuh-uh (sorry).
    I've installed xulrunner-2.0 and the libswt packages, and I've symlinked as you said. However, Eclipse still won't start - here's the bug report.

    Just to update - the new 3.7 (Indigo) release seems to work fine in Oneiric.

    I just got it running. There's a possible type in the above directions.
    I used the repository mentioned, installed xulrunner-2.0 and the swt libs. Then (as root) I did:
    cd /usr/lib/eclipse/debian-swt
    ln -s ../../jni/libswt* .
    (This is effectively equivalent
    ln -s /usr/lib/jni/libswt* .
    unless you nfs export your drive, which I do sometimes.)

    That period makes all the difference! I did run eclipse as root the first time, but I don't know if that's necessary or not.
    Probably someone should fix the .deb package so it has those dependencies. I'm not going to do it though! Oh well. Android Development Kit here I come!

    That's all fine and dandy but on my system there is no usr/lib/eclipse folder

    Interestingly enough however, from within the software centre selecting eclipse, on the install screen there is an option to select version.
