Hi,
I am running an updated Ubuntu 10.10 desktop. I cannot run Eclipse.

The program 'Eclipse' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
(Details: serial 10174 error_code 8 request_code 153 minor_code 4)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

progname=Eclipse; RGBA=on

All my other programs work fine.

Advice:

1) Download Eclipse from http://eclipse.org; do NOT get it from Ubuntu
Software Center.
2) Download a full Sun JDK.
3) Ensure the bittedness of the JDK matches that of the Eclipse you
downloaded (i.e.: don't mix 32-bit and 64-bit software).
4) Point eclipse/eclipse.ini to JDK as per instructions in
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse.ini.
5) Come back here and ask questions.

Darren,

I don't see anything really alarming. I hope an Indigo guy comes along.
(I've so far not moved up from Helios.) Note that weekends are a little
slow in this forum.

Best,

Russ

Thanks Russ. And FWIW, I couldn't run Helios either and why I upgraded. Perhaps its a problem with Ubuntu update and I will try there too.
This has appeared as late because I was running Eclipse fine a couple months ago.

I can't think of much in Eclipse that's related in any way to Ubuntu
updates. It's a huge mistake to get Eclipse, the JDK, etc. out of Ubuntu
repositories. As long as stuff is running generally on your host
(letting Ubuntu Update maintain the base software), there should really
be no obstacle to downloading Eclipse and running it.

I run 10.10 at work, 10.4 on two machines at home and W7Pro on a third.
All run Eclipse perfectly.

Hi Russel,

Unfortunately I have to disagree. After my Ubuntu 11.04 automatically upgraded
itself, I've got the same problem as Darren has. Before the Ubuntu-update Eclipse was
running fine and after, not so much Smile

I've installed sun-java6-jdk, sun-java6-jre, sun-java6-plugin from the repository and
I've installed Eclipse Helios from eclipse.org. Both installations were
working fine. I'm pretty sure Ubuntu has something to do with it.

I don't know what they are doing at canonical but this update also broke other
software (like LibreOffice, Vuescan).

As soon as I figure out what the problem is I'll let you know.

Cheers, Frank
