Hi there, a Linux newbie here. My university recently asked us all to switch to Ubuntu for our programming courses and to use Eclipse as the IDE. So I recently installed Eclipse for C++ however, the program fails to launch. I'm providing the following info and maybe you can guide me on what to do.


The log is also in the downloads.

You're using Java 11 to run Eclipse 4.7.3, which was released in early 2018. While it's possible to run that on Java 9 and 10 with some work, you'll need the 2018-12 release, or newer, to run under Java 11 (which was released in late 2018). I'd suggest the current, supported, release 2019-12 unless you have a strong reason to avoid it.
