I'm on linux, and if I try running the zip file, eclipse runs slower than molasses rolling uphill in the winter Sad . I switch to the Oomph installer, and EUREKA! It works quickly again Smile . Unfortunately, the excitment was short lived. The next time I tried to use eclipse (`~/eclipse/cpp-mars/eclipse/eclipse`), it was slow again Confused . I tried to see what arguments the installer was using, but it appeared to just run `eclipse -vmargs -Duser.dir=/home/kenkron/eclipse/cpp-mars/eclipse`(which, run from terminal, was no better).

I'm using Ubuntu, 64 bit, java 8, Mars C++, etc., but it has to be something with the startup options, right? I mean, otherwise, why would eclipse work every time I reinstall and run from Oomph?

I'm attaching the workspace .log, if that helps

Most likely this is the result of the Oomph installer using GTK2
(because the eclipse-inst.ini specifies that option) and the processes
it launches inheriting that flag. Try adding these two lines before
the -vmargs in the installation's eclipse.ini:

--launcher.GTK_version
2

You, my friend, are a true hero! I put those lines in the .ini file, and it works perfectly.

...
-vm
/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/jre/bin
--launcher.GTK_version
2
-vmargs
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.7
-Declipse.p2.max.threads=10
...
