I tried to reproduce what you're doing, though I'm running Ubuntu
Maverick. At this point, I guess I'd ask you what's in eclipse.ini.
First, however, note that to develop in Java (you've chosen the Eclipse
IDE for Java Developers package), you'll want a proper Sun JDK. You'll
see mine wired up in my new Indigo eclipse.ini (see below or
You'll want to pay attention to the -vm switch (whose value is on the
line following it). Get your JDK from java.sun.com, hover over
Downloads, choose Java for Developers under Popular Downloads.
Eclipse isn't failing to start because you don't have a JDK, your host's
JRE should be sufficient, but since you need a JDK to do Java
development, we should get that going from the start and sort out the
trouble (if any) with that set-up.
Hope this is helpful.
