I have the openjdk-7-jdk installed, the

java -version 
java version "1.6.0_27"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.12.6) (6b27-1.12.6-1ubuntu0.12.04.2)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.0-b12, mixed mode)

I have tried to download eclipse indigo directly from the eclipse site and unzip it, when I try to open eclipse, it stay in the opening state, the blue rectangle stay there forever and no error message at all. I try to install eclipse indigo also from terminal, the same situation there. What is wrong with it? Really need some help here. Even the ubuntu is newly installed.

More info, the editions of eclipse I tried are eclipse-java-indigo-SR2-linux-gtk-x86_64 and scala-SDK-3.0.1-vfinal-2.10-linux.gtk.x86_64

Run eclipse from the terminal and post the output in your question. Also, I noticed that your java -version shows Java 1.6.0, meaning Java 6. My one shows 1.7.0_40 (Java 7) –  minerz029 Oct 15 '13 at 9:37
    
I tried to run eclipse from the terminal, and the output is as I described, it stayed in the opening state, the blue rectangle stay there forever and no error message at all. And about the java version, I use "sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk" in the terminal to install java 7. Do you mean now the problem is my java version is too low. @minerz029 –  jiang Oct 16 '13 at 19:16
    
It is working now after i did sudo apt-get update. And there was a error log file generated in my home folder I just noticed. Thanks anyway for the help@minerz029 –  jiang Oct 19 '13 at 8:09
