I installed downloaded and extracted `Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers` from https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/ (The Linux x86_64 version). When I try to run the eclipse binary, I get a popup:

Quote:

An error has occurred. See the log file
/home/josh/Downloads/eclipse-cpp/eclipse/configuration/1638583987805.log.


That log file is attached.

I followed the advice in the sticky and modified the eclipse.ini file to point to an Oracle JDK 11 binary. It is attached.

How can I fix this? I'll note that I'm on Ubuntu 20.04. Eclipse IDE for Java Developers works out of the box. All I have to do is download the tarball, extract it, and run it.

You must have edited the eclipse.ini for it to contain
-vm
/usr/local/bin/java11-oracle
I thought the C/C++ package came packaged with a JRE. Does the folder /usr/local/bin/java11-oracle contain the java executable file? This should point at a folder with the executable...

I suggest that you delete the Eclipse installation, download the Eclipse installer for Linux and use it to install the main system. Remember to update the installer before using it.

Check that your Ubuntu installation has the build-essential Linux package installed.

So it's fixed. As it turns out, I somehow managed to get an old download link (no idea where from).
