I just installed the Eclipse IDE, but there seems to be an error when I execute Eclipse.exe.

Here's the log file:

!SESSION Wed Nov 28 18:42:12 IST 2018 ------------------------------------------
!ENTRY org.eclipse.equinox.launcher 4 0 2018-11-28 18:42:12.757
!MESSAGE Exception launching the Eclipse Platform:

what should I do?

  • I don't see an error. Why do you execute Eclipse.exe ? Are you using Windows? Start with eclipse – abu_bua Nov 28 '18 at 16:20
  • What version of Eclipse? What version of Java? – greg-449 Nov 29 '18 at 8:47
  • Sorry for the late reply. I'm using Ubuntu 18.04. I downloaded eclipse using the "sudo apt-get eclipse" command. I think I used the wrong phrase when I wrote I "execute eclipse". I meant that I simply launched the eclipse application. But there does seem to be an error. – Apekshik Panigrahi Dec 1 '18 at 13:37
