I run Eclipse Indigo on Ubuntu 12.04. In order to start developing Android apps, I read that you should install Sun Java rather than OpenJava.
I removed OpenJava and installed Sun Java and altered the .ini file in Eclipse to point to my Java vm.
However, Eclipse won't launch. I get this error file:

I haven't used eclipse for a while and am unsure if this error is linked to the changes I met, or are unrelated. Any help from you Eclipse experts out there would be appreciated!

Did you install a 32-bit -r 64-bit Java? Is your GTK+ also 64-bit?
