  • What command are you running, exactly? (You can edit your question to provide this information.) – Eliah Kagan Jul 13 '12 at 3:23

Credit to Ubuntu Forums:

sudo mount -o remount,exec /tmp

aptitude search swt-gtk based on the search result, I would presume that installing libswt-gtk-3-java would fix your problem.

If not try the -jni or -gcj version. I believe one of those should fix your stack trace.
