I am trying to install Eclipse Mars on my ArchLinux, but the application won't start. I use gnome as my desktop environement.

So I tried to launch it in console:

eclipse -debug -consolelog

the log stop after this lines:

org.eclipse.m2e.logback.configuration: The org.eclipse.m2e.logback.configuration bundle was activated before the state location was initialized.  Will retry after the state location is initialized.
Starting application: 1954

My cpu run at background(30%) and it took 1G of nemory, but no application showed

I tried to download Eclipse Mars from the website but I had the same problem. I tried it with eclipse Luna and that worked, but I need to use eclipse Mars.

How can I start Eclipse Mars on ArchLinux?

  • Does eclipse -clean work? You might need to run it as root if you have plugins installed by root. – ams Nov 18 '15 at 13:03

  • I installed eclipse from the Arch repository and it works fine. – ams Nov 19 '15 at 17:49

Ok, I found the problem. This didn't come form Eclipse Mars.

I used Gnome on wayland like desktop environement. I used that because my touchpad didn't work on Gnome. I folow instruction form this website To solve the touchpad problem:

I installed xf86-input-libinput drivers.

So, now I use Gnome and that's work. Thank for your help Thomas Dickey
