I'm currently on Ubuntu Mate 15.04 and have installed Eclipse Mars directly from the official website.
My Eclipse version: Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers Version: Mars.1 Release (4.5.1) Build id: 20150924-1200
Unfortunately, when I'm trying to use it, after clicking on some button (for example doing a right click on the C/C++ button in the top right corner) get me to a crash.
I then get a crash report (.log) in my /home file with written :
# # A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment: # # SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00007f9f09801d41, pid=14037, tid=140321501198080 # # JRE version: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (8.0_66-b17) (build 1.8.0_66-b17) # Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (25.66-b17 mixed mode linux-amd64 compressed oops) # Problematic frame: # C [libgdk-3.so.0+0x3dd41] gdk_window_ensure_native+0x31 # # Failed to write core dump.

There are actually about 1500 lines in those log files. From the crash report, the problem comes from Java. I have installed Java 7 and Java 8. Tried to uninstall one to have only one at a time, still crash.
From what I have read, there may be some bugs because of GTK or something like that but I still don't know what to do to fix it. Do you have any idea ?
Thanks forward :)
