I have the following problem when starting the application:

!ENTRY org.eclipse.osgi 4 0 2012-06-23 10:00:26.666
!MESSAGE Application error
java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: Could not load SWT library. Reasons:

I've looked at some forums and others and say that I have no java for 64 bit but for 32. but I think the fault is not there.

root@marta-VirtualBox:/home/marta# update-alternatives --list java

-- fich: jre-7u5-linux-x64.tar.gz

root@marta-VirtualBox:/home/marta# echo $JAVA_HOME

Someone can help me.

Thank you very much in advance.

Looks like a question for the SWT team [1]

The obvious thing to check (you didn't mention): does the swt library exist at the given location? I'm surprised to see the .swt path, on my box those are located in places like eclipse/configuration/org.eclipse.osgi/bundles/721/2/.cp/ - you don't seem to have write permissions in that area?
