i know this comes up a lot and there are lots of responses to it already but
i've looked through them and i'm still stumped (old unix C++ programmer here)

I am getting the error in the first SWT tutorial

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: Could not load SWT library. Reasons:
no swt-win32-4332 in java.library.path
no swt-win32 in java.library.path
Can't load library: C:\Users\Alyssa\.swt\lib\win32\x86_64\swt-win32-4332.dll
Can't load library: C:\Users\Alyssa\.swt\lib\win32\x86_64\swt-win32.dll

So either the path is wrong or the file is miising. What i have found so far.
The swt files are in .../eclipse/plug-in directory but they are har files i don't see any *.dll files. I've searched the disk and the file swt-win32.dll doesn't seem to exist on the disk anywhere.

I copy all the *swt* files from the plug in directory to the path above in the
error msg and no change. I didn't try yet to set the path variable to the
plug in directory but since the *.dll files are not there i don't see how that would help.

Where are the swt-win32.dll files?

If you're on a 64-bit system, make sure you're using a 64-bit JRE and a 64-bit Eclipse.

You can extract them from the org.eclipse.swt.* jar file and copy them in to place.

I have the same issue.

I'm using a default Ubuntu 64bit install (fresh since a week or so ago). I have confirmed my Java version in the terminal...

java version "1.7.0_25"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.3.10) (7u25-2.3.10-1ubuntu0.13.04.2)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.7-b01, mixed mode)

... and I have installed Eclipse Kepler 64bit together with the x86_64 archive of SWT, which I've followed the instructions for regarding how to use it within my Eclipse project.

Is there some overriding reason why this is not a nice, straightforward process?

None of the guides or tutorials cover this eventuality.
