Problems starting Eclipse

November 10, 2010

While trying to install a plugin, i’ve made some mess which resulted in Eclipse not starting, giving the following error in the log file:

!SESSION Tue Nov 09 15:18:43 CET 2010 ------------------------------------------
!ENTRY org.eclipse.equinox.launcher 4 0 2010-11-09 15:18:43.233
!MESSAGE Exception launching the Eclipse Platform:

That’s what happen when you force the removal of some files 🙂

I solved the problem purging libequinox-osgi-java and reinstalling Eclipse. Try with:

sudo apt-get remove --purge libequinox-osgi-java
sudo apt-get install eclipse
