Can't get eclipse to work on Debian


Hi,
I want eclipse on my laptop that is running Debian 4.0 2.6.22amd64,
when I download the IDE for linux nothing happens when I try to start it.

Do anyone know what I need to do to make it work?

It says:

error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I found libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 in my /usr/lib but eclipse doesn't find it

execute eclipse as an argument to the command ldd. Using this will show you where it is looking for its shared libraries. i.e.

ldd eclipse
