I got the same error, the reason is Ubuntu also upgraded svn lib files which are incompatible with older subeclipse. There is a simple fix. Uninstall the old subeclipse and install the newest version.
Select Help->Install New Software
Select “What is already installed” link in the lower right area. Uninstall all the packages for the current subversion.
Repeat the same Select Help->Install New Software and install the newest version from http://subclipse.tigris.org/servlets/ProjectProcess?pageID=p4wYuA
I used following update link : Eclipse update site URL: http://subclipse.tigris.org/update_1.8.x
For installation instruction see following.
Create a directory for eclipse.
~ $ mkdir ~/opt
Download eclipse from http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/.
Open terminal and cd to the download directory. Extract files, and move them to ~/opt directory.
~ $ tar -zxvf eclipse-java-indigo-SR1-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz && mv eclipse ~/opt
Create an entry in /usr/bin to launch eclipse.
~ $ sudo nano /usr/bin/eclipse
Copy following lines, save and close the file.
Make it executable
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/eclipse
Type eclipse in terminal to run it.
~ $ eclipse
Create an launcher on desktop:
~ $ nano ~/Desktop/eclipse.desktop
Copy following lines.
Save and close.
First make sure you have Java Installed on your system.
sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jdk
Download Netbeans from http://netbeans.org/index.html .Open terminal and cd to the download location
Start the installer and follow the on screen instruction. On terminal type:
If you get following error in eclipse:
Failed to load JavaHL Library.
These are the errors that were encountered:
no libsvnjavahl-1 in java.library.path
no svnjavahl-1 in java.library.path
no svnjavahl in java.library.path
java.library.path = /usr/lib/jni/
Close eclipse and run following command on terminal.
sudo apt-get install libsvn-java
Edit eclipse.ini file.
sudo nano /usr/lib/eclipse/eclipse.ini
Add following two lines after -vmargs
save and close
If you are still getting the same error, this is because Ubuntu 11.10 in lagging in JavaHL version. If you install from Ubuntu 11.10 repository , it installs 1.6.x, although the newer version is 1.7.x . Simple solution would be to uninstall subversion 1.8.x from eclipse and install version 1.6.x.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/thunderbird-stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install thunderbird
I was really annoyed the wired scroll bar in Ubuntu and Mint, specially, when using eclipse. Found this quick fix. What it does it tell X11 to not to use overlayscroollbars.
Edit following file: /etc/X11/Xsession.d/80overlayscrollbars
sudo nano /etc/X11/Xsession.d/80overlayscrollbars
Copy following line. Save and Exit.
Log off and Login back. You should see traditional scroll bar.
Install eclipse on Ubuntu. Open terminal and type:
sudo apt-get install eclipse
Two useful directories are:
Default plugin directory is:
Copy all the required plugins in this directory. If for some reason, plugins are not loaded, you might need to change permistion of the dropins directory. Try:
sudo chown -R user_name /usr/share/eclipse/dropins
Open terminal and type:
sudo apt-get install gnome-session-fallback
