Trying to launch Eclipse on ubuntu I get the message:
The Eclipse executable launcher was unable to locate its companion shared library.
Where can I find that and how can it be put in the ini file?
Thanks. Joe Kuhn

Hi Joseph,

You'll have to provide more details like what version of Eclipse you're trying and whether you got it from eclipse.org or Ubuntu directly, etc. How you're trying to launch it would also be helpful.

Thanks,

Andrew

I think the "companion shared library" should be in
eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.<arch >_<versionString
>/eclipse_<aNumber>.so. I don't know why it wouldn't be found there, unless
there was a problem with your download or you're not using the eclipse
executable that came with your download. Or, maybe the library is being
found but is failing to load for some reason? Can you ldd it?

Andrew, My problem is that a jre is not found. I tried -vm with
java_ee_sdk-5_06-linux.bin
and jre is not found.
What is a useable jre and where can I find it? Thanks. Joe Kuhn

Hi,

Could you provide a bit more info?

1. Which Eclipse are you trying to run? Where did you get it?

2. What is the content of your eclipse.ini?

3. How do you start Eclipse (parameters)?

4. If you wish to override the default JRE (-vm parameter), what is the path to that specific JRE (-vm takes that directory as argument). Also, what is the version of that JRE?

5. What is the default JRE?

It seems to me you are trying to use a compressed binary directly
instead of a directory where JRE installed. What about unpacking
(installing) it and using something like this:

-vm /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/

See http://wiki.eclipse.org/FAQ_How_do_I_run_Eclipse for more details.

For some odd reason, my debugger is not working. Everytime I try to debug my code, it says "source not found". How can I fix this?

Can anyone help? I have a project due next week. This is really urgent. Thanks Confused
