Eclipse subclipse connector error just after 12.04 upgrade


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.
