I was wondering if any one has tried running SWT on UNIX? I have tried to
no avail. I have brought over the swt.jar and did a javac -classpath
///swt.jar GUI.java, even putting the jar in my project folder and setting
the classpath. But I keep getting a can not resolve symbol? I am new to
SWT and I do not want to use Swiing, any help would be greatly
appreciated! has any one successfully ran SWT on UNIX??
Thanks in advance

I am not running Eclipse on UNIX, I wanted to run the 3 classes stand
alone. But to no avail. One classes utilizes SWT, and I can not get it
working. Is the SWT jar file all you need to run the GUI's on UNIX????
thanks so much, dieing here.

you need native libraries for unix (gtk or motif) and swt libraries for your
platform
see swt faq on eclipse.org/swt

You need to download the SWT SDK, which contains both the swt.jar file
and the shared libraries appropriate for your platform.

Then go to http://www.eclipse.org/swt/faq.php for tips on launching an
SWT app from the command line (including -Djava.library.path, etc)

SWT requires one or more swt jars (prior to 3.1, for some platforms there is
more than one jar) plus one or more swt C libraries. You must get the
correct jars and libraries for the platform you are running on.

Get the SWT Binary and Source download for your platform (e.g. Solaris GTK):

http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/drops/S-3.2M4- 200512151506/index.php#swt

Put all the jars on the classpath and put the C libraries on the
java.library.path. e.g.:

/users/me./jdk1.5.0_02/bin/java -Djava.library.path=/users/me/swt/ -classpath
/users/me/swt/swt.jar:/users/me/myApp/myApp.jar MyApp

time installing SWT.
Thanks so much every one!!

SunOS 5.8 is branded as Solaris 8.

Solaris 8 did not ship with GTK+, you should use the Motif version.
