Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I am using sun's java 1.7.5 and installed through sudo apt-get install eclipse-cdt.

I uninstalled/reinstalled eclipse and keep on having the same error message below

I looked on the forum and tried copying the symlinks from jni to home, changing the alternative java to open jdk and reinstalled eclipse but cannot launch eclipse.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
