I am encountering a issue when installing the Eclim. It is not able to detect the location of the Eclipse. At the installation screen, I select the Eclipse home folder, but the Eclim installer has an error with the message:

Invalid eclipse home (no 'plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_*.jar' found)

I have installed my Eclipse using the new Eclipse installer. And my Eclim is version 2.5.0, downloaded from here.

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!


According to this GitHub issue this is a known issue.

It looks like the easiest solution is to download the .tar.gz version you need from here: https://eclipse.org/downloads/


I had the same issue. In the new eclipse installer click the top right icon for settings and uncheck the bundle pool checkbox. It should work.
