Oracle SQL Developer 4.0.1 crashes

Does anyone use Oracle 11gXE / SQL Developer 4.0.1? If so would you mind sharing which distro you use?
I haven't had any luck with SQL Developer and I'm about ready to set my laptop on fire and chuck it out my window.
Specs - Linux Mint 16. Oracle 11gXE. Oracle SQL Developer 4.0.1. Java SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8) also tried (build 1.7).
When I run SQL Developer, the splash screen comes up with the progress bar which shows a bunch of things loading then just at the very end the splash screen disappears and I receive 'a fatal error is detected by Java runtime environment' in the terminal.
The esoteric error that was thrown in a temp file is ridiculous. It's probably 20 pages long so I won't post it here or even begin a futile attempt to decipher it.
Now that I'm done ranting, again, please let me know what distro you use if you're currently running SQL Developer 4.0.1.

Thanks for helping me resolve this @thatjeffsmith. Cheers

Here are the steps that I used with Jeff's help.
1. Make a note of the location of your file. Mine was installed in /opt/sqldeveloper however yours may have been installed in a different directory.
2. Open the terminal. Type in the following command to edit your file.
sudo gedit /opt/sqldeveloper/
3. Add these two lines directly below the #!bin/bash line, then save
