Hi

I've been trying to get Eclipse 4.3 Kepler running on my 64-bit Linux Mint 16. I have OpenJDK 7.

java -version

java version "1.7.0_55"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.4.7) (7u55-2.4.7-1ubuntu1~0.13.10.1)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.51-b03, mixed mode)

Eclipse file

eclipse-standard-kepler-SR2-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz

On startup Eclipse displays the splash screen which after a few seconds goes blank and nothing happens. Eclipse creates .eclipse directory but no workspace.

Contents of .eclipse directory:

org.eclipse.platform_3.8_155965261 org.eclipse.platform_4.3.2_1473617060_linux_gtk_x86_64

I have specified in the eclipse.ini file that it uses openJDK 7.

-vm
/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/java

When I use

eclipse -clean -consoleLog -debug

last two lines are

Time to load bundles: 5
Starting application: 5051

After which the splash screen goes blank and stays on indefinitely. When I force quit it with Ctrl-C I get an error message which differs from time to time for example

Eclipse: Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server :0.

or

[xcb] Unknown sequence number while processing queue
[xcb] Most likely this is a multi-threaded client and XInitThreads has not been called
[xcb] Aborting, sorry about that.
java: ../../src/xcb_io.c:274: poll_for_event: Assertion `!xcb_xlib_threads_sequence_lost' failed.

or sometimes I get no error message at all.

I have tried googling for solutions and using Oracle's JDK 8 instead of OpenJDK but haven't managed to get it working.

Check the link below

But in my case when i do eclipse -clean -consolelog - debug Eclipse opens up in debug mode i think.
