I updated the package for the 4.17 (2020-09) release. Please note that the minimum JRE version required for running Eclipse is now 11 (Source).

@HVLife Then this is related to your project, and you have to build it with JDK8 in Eclipse. But you still have to use Java 11 or newer for running Eclipse itself.

Thanks for fast reply, I'm using stm32cubemx to program stm32. It Appears when I'm trying to list pins, just after mcu selection.

Could it be that this is a problem specific to a project you are developing in Eclipse that you have here? How do you get the error? I could not reproduce your error by just running Eclipse (tried JRE 11 and 14).

HVLife commented on 2020-09-26 13:34 (UTC)

Inconsistency detected by dl-lookup.c: 105: check_match: Assertion `version->filename == NULL || ! _dl_name_match_p (version->filename, map)' failed! Appears, few minutes after application starts. I found solution (use java 8) but now i can't use that version of java. What can i do?

I should create an update script for this :D use updpkgsums see ; )

flortsch commented on 2020-03-19 20:00 (UTC)

Sry for that, I fixed it. Maybe, I should create an update script for this :D

Checksum verification fails for eclipse.desktop, please update it in PKGBUILD.

flortsch commented on 2020-01-08 02:07 (UTC)

I took maintainership of this package as eddy_hunter gave it up. I pushed a commit where I changed the dependency from java-environment to java-runtime as suggested by tinywrkb, because Eclipse only requires a JRE for execution and installing a JDK is only necessary if you use this package to set up a Java IDE. Maybe, JDKs and other language compilers/tools should be listed as optional dependencies with a reference to corresponding Eclipse plugins (like JDT or CDT). Or, we echo a message after installation informing the user that he has to install the corresponding compilers/tools on its own when installing Eclipse plugins that require them.

tinywrkb commented on 2019-10-07 19:26 (UTC)

Why depend on java-environment and not java-runtime?

Janfel commented on 2019-07-27 15:51 (UTC)

Please add the package "eclipse-common" to the conflicting packages, or make it a dependency by removing the files provided by "eclipse-common" from your package.

flortsch commented on 2018-06-30 10:42 (UTC)

The eclipse.desktop file is still using the old 4.7 version string.

cleanrock commented on 2017-10-29 02:43 (UTC)

I did not see the 4.7.1a update when using pacaur, perhaps it is better to step pkgrel for minor updates like this.

flortsch commented on 2017-07-01 18:00 (UTC)

Just updated to the recent version and saw that there is an install script which manually calls gtk-update-icon-cache. With the latest Gnome package guidelines, you could omit this call by depending on the gtk-update-icon-cache package which automatically updates the icon cache via pacman hooks. See

What I mean is to use webkit2gtk instead of deprecated webkitgtk2 like the official eclipse-common package does. This allows to use Eclipse with gtk3 and without having to install gtk2.

eddy_hunter commented on 2017-02-10 15:53 (UTC)

Updated package to reflect the suggested changes, apologies for the delay

flortsch commented on 2017-01-29 16:19 (UTC)

Could this PKGBUILD be changed to use webkit2gtk instead of libwebkit (webkitgtk2)? The new eclipse-common package in the official repo now also uses the newer webkit2gtk package.

stativ commented on 2017-01-02 14:06 (UTC)

Could you please change the installation directory from /usr/share/eclipse to /usr/lib/eclipse? The eclipse packages from extra use the /usr/lib directory since eclipse 4.5.0. Many plugins found in AUR are already adapted to /usr/lib, making them unusable with eclipse-platform without tweaking.

eddy_hunter commented on 2016-06-25 09:23 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up, I've updated eclipse.desktop. I couldn't find an .svg icon for Neon anywhere and the other Eclipse packages (-java, -cpp, etc) don't even use one, so I took it away and added the 256x256 .png instead.

flortsch commented on 2016-06-24 18:55 (UTC)

Hey, the version string in eclipse.desktop should be adopted to 4.6. Also a more recent eclipse icon could be used for this package. Nevertheless nice work.

eddy_hunter commented on 2015-07-22 08:18 (UTC)

Updated to Mars, gtk3 is now used by default, to force gtk2 use SWT_GTK3=0

eddy_hunter commented on 2015-04-12 13:33 (UTC)

Updated to Luna, fixed a problem with 32-bit MD5 sum.

abadcafe commented on 2014-08-16 19:34 (UTC)

eclipse support gtk3 now, just add SWT_GTK3=1 into

abadcafe commented on 2012-12-14 17:12 (UTC)

eclipse needs not java-runtime, just java-runtime-headless is satisfied. libwebkit is also redundant.

lahwaacz commented on 2012-10-06 14:04 (UTC)

Fixed PKGBUILD (bad icon symlink), v4.2.1:

lahwaacz commented on 2012-10-01 17:16 (UTC)

PKGBUILD for 4.2.1 version:

Modified PKGBUILD for 4.2 version:

lahwaacz commented on 2012-07-15 11:58 (UTC)

Why does it depend on java-environment? I use eclipse-platform and eclipse-cdt without java-environment and everything works fine.

Shanto commented on 2011-05-19 12:25 (UTC)

Switched to libwebkit.

Shanto commented on 2011-04-11 23:59 (UTC)

It's weird but none of those workarounds worked on my setup (eclipse 3.6.2 with lots of PHP/DLTK/Web plugins). So, I decided to go for local xulrunner copy as the last option.

commented on 2011-04-11 01:27 (UTC)

Alternative workaround, add this to eclipse.ini: -Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.UseWebKitGTK=true Another alternative if don't have libwebkit installed, add the following: -Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.XULRunnerPath==/usr/lib/xulrunner-2.0/ Ref:

Shanto commented on 2011-04-10 06:09 (UTC)

Added internal xulrunner-1.9.2 because xulrunner-2.0.0 which comes with firefox-4.0 breaks the internal browser.

Shanto commented on 2011-04-10 02:26 (UTC)

Done (updating mirror link). Thanks!

commented on 2011-04-05 07:28 (UTC)

please use link below. it can auto choose 'best' mirror.${pkgver}-${_pkgbuild}/eclipse-platform-${pkgver}-linux-gtk.tar.gz

Shanto commented on 2011-04-03 20:09 (UTC)

Updated to 3.6.2 (201102101200)
