Eclipse does not start up [Linux] [message #1138746] Tue, 15 October 2013 09:46 Go to next message

my Eclipse installation crashes immediately after the start on Fedora 19.

The error log complains about a missing EclipseStarter class.

I have already tried to cleanly reinstall Eclipse as well as OpenJDK 1.7; I switched the alternatives for the Java installation and tried to run Eclipse letting -vm point to the dedicated javaws -- but all without success so far.

Maybe somebody has an idea for me?

Cheers and Thanks,

Don't use "javaw" when something's wrong. Instead, use the "java" binary and start Eclipse with the -consoleLog switch. How was this Eclipse installed?
