When I upgraded from Ubuntu 12.04 to 14.04 Aptana Studio 3 doesn't work any more. When I try to open it after a few minutes it just closes, but when I open it in the terminal I got this error massage.

A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:

 SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0xa144786d, pid=3011, tid=3076155136

JRE version: OpenJDK Runtime Environment (7.0_51-b31) (build 1.7.0_51-b31)
Java VM: OpenJDK Client VM (24.51-b03 mixed mode, sharing linux-x86 )
 Problematic frame:
 C  []  soup_session_feature_detach+0x1d

 Failed to write core dump. Core dumps have been disabled. To enable core dumping, try "ulimit -c unlimited" before starting Java again

 An error report file with more information is saved as:

 If you would like to submit a bug report, please include 
 instructions on how to reproduce the bug and visit:
 The crash happened outside the Java Virtual Machine in native code.
 See problematic frame for where to report the bug.

I tried to reinstall that frame using Synaptic, but it doesn't work. After that, I uninstall Aptana Studio. I installed it by this manual . I have used this manual before upgrade and after upgrade.

I had the same problem after upgrading to UBUNTU 14.04. For a workaround I added the following line to the end of "AptanaStudio3.ini" file (in your case it should be at '/opt/Aptana_Studio_3/AptanaStudio3.ini')


That worked for me (at least for the past hour since it used to close after few minutes), I hope it solves your problem as well.

After trying a lot of thinks, this worked for me (Ubuntu 14.04 + java 7 oracle): In a terminal:

ulimit -c unlimited

And it worked (until now)

-- never mind this didnt work after all --

I read somewhere that theres a problem with OpenJDK and its best to use OracleJDK. You can try remove OpenJDK first as i did or just go ahead and install OracleJDK.

These lines seem to fix it for me.

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
