I could not even get Eclipse to run, as the application crashed with only the log file telling me some type of problem with the SWT-GTK java code. I checked with the Synaptics Software Manager, only to be puzzled why the currently installed libraries were not working.

Eventually I found the workaround from Googling for users with the same problem:


I was having a very similar error in 12.04:
java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: Could not load SWT library. Reasons:
no swt-gtk-3740 in java.library.path

Duane's work around worked for me also, with the following minor variation since I have a 32 bit machine:
$ cp /usr/lib/jni/libswt-* ~/.swt/lib/linux/x86

End Quote

This solution worked for me on my own 32-bit machine and Eclipse came up fully functional.
