    Eclipse 3.4/Ganymede hangs loading workbench

    I have been working with Eclipse 3.4/Ganymede for maybe two months now. Now suddenly I'm experiencing some problems with it. Probably installed a little too much software?

    If start Eclipse I can select a workspace then it starts loading. It stops on "loading workbench". If I run from terminal and hit cntrl-c it shows the information below.

    I have seen another post here with subject "java unusable on Ubuntu". I hope it is not that bad, I just want to run Eclipse and dome some development work.

    Any ideas on how I can fix this?
    Thanks and Regards,

    Java is absolutely not "unusable on Ubuntu" and you shouldn't start believing things like that after reading one thread by some random person on Internet.

    Eclipse 3.4 works just fine on Ubuntu with Sun Java 6 or OpenJDK Java 6. Make sure you are not using GCJ Java (GNU Java, which is a very slow and incomplete implementation of Java 1.4).

    If you have multiple versions of Java installed, you can select which one you want to use by default using the following command:
    sudo update-alternatives --config java
    You could also try starting Eclipse from the command line with the "-clean" option, or as a last resort you can delete the ~/.eclipse directory (which will delete all your Eclipse configuration settings and Eclipse software updates you downloaded!).

    Re: Eclipse 3.4/Ganymede hangs loading workbench

    Even on Eclipse 3.3/Europa the problem is same. It hangs loading workbench. The IDE failed to start only i had my internet connection on. That means when there is ppp0 on eclipse hanged. When i did "sudo poff -a" and loaded eclipse again it loaded as if nothing had happened. So i think the problem might be eclipse trying to search something silently. I think eclipse is searching for javadoc(not sure might be.) which i could not install on the computer because it failed from synaptic. I even removed sun-java6-jre, jdk and installed sun-java-5jre. I am waiting for Ubuntu 8.10. I might have messed up by installing many software. Something like dbus (update). But before that i will try to remove gcj as it might be the one. Any ways if you get any help please reply

    Re: Eclipse 3.4/Ganymede hangs loading workbench

    Hi, i have the same problem. I'm using jdk 1.6u7 and eclipse ganymede for Java EE. When the splash disappear it shows a blank gray dialog.

    @razorxpress: I tried to disconnect all network connections but it didn't work.

    Any solutions found? I'm stuck here and need help...

    I was also having a terrible time getting Ganymede going on my install of ubuntu 8.04. Long hangs while workbench was loading and random crashes. Went and used synaptic package manager to remove gij and my older version of jkd, then install the openjdk and now everything is good to go! Thanks for the help.

    Re: Eclipse 3.4/Ganymede hangs loading workbench

    I hate to resurrect an old post... but I'm at a loss here...

    Eclipse 3.4, Ubuntu 8.10, Sun Java 6 -

    java - version:
    java version "1.6.0_10"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_10-b33)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 11.0-b15, mixed mode, sharing)

    I launch eclipse, and it goes through the splash... looks like it's loading and then I get a dialog box with nothing in it... and it just sits. No output onto the command line, nothing... just sits there. I have to manually kill it.

    I've checked and re-checked Java paths and various installed JREs. I have no idea what is going on here... If I could at least get an error, I'd be happy...

    It seems to be the same problem that anezch mentioned in his post...

    Anyone come across this??? Any ideas even???

    Are you starting eclipse from a terminal? If not start from a terminal and see if it prints out its stack trace to the terminal and post it here.

    Make sure if you are running 64bit java that you are running 64bit eclipse or vice versa for 32 bit.

    Re: Eclipse 3.4/Ganymede hangs loading workbench

    I've checked and re-checked the java versions, I have 32bit Java installed and 32bit eclipse. I even downloaded a different version from Eclipse, I started with Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers, and then switched to Eclipse IDE for Java Developers - hoping that would make a difference... and still the same result.

    I've tried making Open-JDK the default java on the system and still the same result.

    I'm pretty sure that something with my system is causing this, to many people download eclipse for this to be a real bug that has not been addressed yet.

    A minor miracle occurred just now... Up to this point, I have been getting nothing on the command line after issuing a CTR+C to kill Eclipse. Although, I just hit CTR+C this time and I actually got a backtrace...

    Honestly, it doesnt make that much sense to me... Hopefully its helpful. Thanks...


    After spending much time playing with variables, I was able to find a solution...

    I uninstalled xulrunner 1.9.1 - apparently Epiphany requires this version, I don't use epiphany and don't really remember installing it... probably via some meta-package.

    At any rate... it works fine now.

    For future reference though, launching eclipse with these parameters helped narrow it down:

    eclipse -debug -consolelog

    prints all stderr to the console...

    Re: Eclipse 3.4/Ganymede hangs loading workbench

    Yeah this Xulrunner thing can happen alot after people installed Firefox 3. A quick fix is usually to set MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME from a script that starts eclipse.

    eg - adding:
    MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=/usr/lib/firefox (or where ever you have it)

    This is a setting eclipse will use on startup before any other method to find out the system's default browser. One of the other methods seems to cause a few problems.

    Glad you got it fixed.
