| Q: Which GTK version do I need to run SWT?
| * Eclipse/SWT 3.8.x: GTK+ 2.6.0 and its dependencies
Per the subject-line, GTK+ 3.18.9 is newer than 2.6.0, so, unless I've misread or misunderstood the FAQ topic cited, I don't understand why I need a newer version.
Apart from that, the version of GTK+, GTK+ 3.18.9, is not something I have any control over. If Zoom (with its bidirectional AV) and many apps couldn't run on HP ThinPro, then I'd willingly accept that I was being unrealistic in expecting a modern app to run on such an antique. But that isn't the case.
HP ThinPro 7.1.0 Build 18 Service Pack 8 is the latest (last updated a couple of months ago). Whilst one might wish for HP to update to a later base than Ubuntu 16.04LTS, if they thought it was preventing Customers from running contemporary apps, I'd imagine that they'd have re-based it. I'm surprised and disappointed that Eclipse is unusual in not being able to run on HP ThinPro 7.1.0/Ubuntu 16.04.
