I have a fresh Linux mint 19 install.
I installed openjdk8 and eclipse.

I get this error .

An error has occurred. See the log file

The log file contains this error:

1 !SESSION Tue Sep 11 10:54:53 CEST 2018 -----------------------------------------
2 !ENTRY org.eclipse.equinox.launcher 4 0 2018-09-11 10:54:53.283
3 !MESSAGE Exception launching the Eclipse Platform:

I don't know what to do. I tried to install the java jdk from oracle. I even tried to install Netbeans, it is not working either, another error message.

Thank you.

Have you tried it with a copy of eclipse downloaded from The (what looks like) 3.8 version there looks ancient.
