I've installed Eclipse Kepler on Ubuntu 14.04LTS , just unpacked the archive downloaded from the original website to /opt folder, and when I open Eclipse the loading window pops up as expected but then nothing else happens it just hangs on my screen forever.

I've added -vm option to eclipse.ini file to specify the JVM for it to run under, it looks like this:

-startup
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.3.0.v20130327-1440.jar
--launcher.library
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_1.1.200.v20140116-2212
-product
org.eclipse.epp.package.standard.product
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
-showsplash
org.eclipse.platform
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256m
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
--launcher.appendVmargs
-vm
/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk-i386/bin/java

-vmargs
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.6
-XX:MaxPermSize=256m
-Xms40m
-Xmx512m


but nothing has changed ...

I'm so frustrated...Why can't I run Eclipse ??? Please, help anyone...

Are you sure that there is no 32/64 bit mismatch between:

- Linux and Java,
- Java and Eclipse?

I have run Kepler under Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and I'm currently running Luna in the same system without a hitch.

Please wait patiently when starting. The startup splash screen will get a progress bar at the bottom of the image when the startup proceeds. I checked on my MacBook under VMware: The splash screen appeared in 3 s, the progress bar in 17 s, and the workbench in 40 s.

My system is 32 bit, I'm using 32 bit Eclipse version(this time tried to download form Eclipse website) and I've manually installed Java 32 bit though, when I run java -version in Terminal I get

java version "1.7.0"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0-b147)
Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 21.0-b17, mixed mode)

and it doesn't give a hint about bit version of Java... I'm confused about whether it is 64 or 32.

I wait enough for it to load but it just doesn't(

Also I tried to reinstall Ubuntu and still the same problem...

Did you read the installation instructions at
<https://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse/Installation>?

The initialization file looks good. Mine is similar for
Kepler on Kubuntu 12.04 LTS, without the -vm option.

It seems to me that your installation is a bit broken.
Did you download and/or decompress it in Windows?
There is a warning about Windows decompression
utility in the installation page.

Mine is in /usr/local/eclipse, but it should not matter
if it is in /opt/eclipse instead.

Have you tried to start it from command line?
