I have installed Eclipse 3.7.2 via PPA and subsequently I have clicked on Add New Software and the link to 64Bit Aptana studio 3.

It found the plugin and installed it correctly.

Now when I startup the Eclipse I get this error:

An internal error has occurred.
No more handlesNative code library failed to load. (java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /home/xxx/.eclipse/org.eclipse.platform_3.7.0_155965261/plugins/com.aptana.swt.webkitbrowser.linux.x86_64_1.0.0.1295409059/os/linux/x86_64/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)

Any idea please?


Seems to be the Java version:

Have you consider using aptana as standalone version? I Use aptana every day and there's no conflict at all with my Ubuntu 12.04.

Consider asking in the official Support page: Aptana | Support

Or see if is that is a current bug.

I hope you find a solution (:

This might be the same problem:

I had same problem with Oracle Java 7 and Eclipse on 32-bit system.

libswt-gtk-3.6-java and libswt-gtk-3.6-jni were already installed. What helped:

cd ~/.swt/lib/linux/x86
ln -s /usr/lib/jni/* .

Maybe this can be done reconfiguring Java alternatives or what.
