I have another solution which worked for me: create or edit /etc/eclipse.ini
Paste inside: -vmargs -Djava.library.path=/usr/lib/jni exit make sure the file is readable: sudo chmod 755 /etc/eclipse.ini worked for me perfectly! btw. I use java-7-oracle on Ubuntu12.04 __ This is the maintainer address of Debian's Java team <http://lists.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/pkg-java-maintainers>.
