[Solved]The Eclipse executable launcher was unable to locate its companion shared library| Ubuntu|Windows 10





Eclipse IDE (Integrated Development Environment) is used to develop the code with packages, libraries.

After installation completed, I am trying to open Eclipse IDE but I got below error because jars have different versions. So need to upgrade the versions. Here we provide the solution for two jars information if it is there we need to remove it then upgrade the other one.

Error:

The Eclipse executable launcher was unable to locate its companion shared library in Ubuntu:

Solution:

Step 1: Goto Eclipse Library path: /usr/lib/eclipse






Step 2: Here eclipse.ini showing short cut so here we can’t change permissions. Follow the below steps to get clarity on this

root@sreekanth-Inspiron-5537:/home/sreekanth# cd /usr/lib/
root@sreekanth-Inspiron-5537:/usr/lib# chmod 777 eclipse/
root@sreekanth-Inspiron-5537:/usr/lib# cd eclipse/
root@sreekanth-Inspiron-5537:/usr/lib/eclipse# ls -ltr
total 84
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 40335 May 7 2015 artifacts.xml
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 May 7 2015 eclipse.ini -> /etc/eclipse.ini
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 20136 May 7 2015 eclipse
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Feb 15 21:55 features
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Feb 15 21:55 configuration
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Feb 15 21:55 p2
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Feb 15 21:55 plugins
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Feb 15 21:55 dropins
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Feb 15 21:55 buildscripts

Step 3: Then go to “/etc/eclipse.ini”, change permission to this file. Need to modification on this file. If you find two jar file information then remove it. If one jar file information is there to check existence: jar file information like below:

-startup
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.3.0.v20120522-1813.jar
and
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_64_1.1.200.dist

Upgraded replaced these files with newer versions
Step 4: After completion of the above steps then restart the machine. Then working fine.

The Eclipse executable launcher was unable to locate its companion shared library in Windows 10

First, we need to check the Java version if it is 1.7 or above then it is fine. Otherwise, we need to upgrade the version

Step 1: Unzip the Eclipse zip file then change the permission for ECLIPSE.INI file

Step 2: If you find two jar file information then remove it. If one jar file information is there to check the existence.
Upgraded replaced these files with newer versions like the above steps(UBUNTU).
