[Solved] Weird error message while attempting to run Eclipse


Hi guys. I recently compiled Eclipse from source using a Slackbuild-script from slackbuild.org, which I've done 50 or so times before and never encountered an error. At least, until today.

After Eclipse had been compiled, packaged and installed successfully - I ran ldconfig and attempted to run eclipse as a local user (not root) and got the following error message:

Code:
vegard@arthedain ~ $  eclipse

I tested the package on another computer running Slackware, and I was able to run Eclipse without problems...

Does anyone know what I could do to fix this problem? I've tried googling for an answer, but that didn't actually make me any wiser. As the error-message implies, there seems to be a problem with libgtk-x11-2.0.so. Which library contains this file? When I scanned through my installed packages, I only found libgtkhtml-2.11.0. When I check the slack-desc of that package, it says it only being used by the GIMP Help Browser...

Thanks.

/usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so is a symbolic link to /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.1000.13. libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.1000.13 is located in the "gtk+2-2.10.13-i486-1" package, as shown by the command `grep libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.1000.13 /var/log/packages/*`. I can't provide you with much help, however. Check to see that /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so exists and is a symlink to /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.1000.13 (also make sure that /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.1000.13 exists as a real file). The permissions on /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.1000.13 are:
Code:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 3406572 2007-06-13 22:45 /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.1000.13*
I can't really help beyond that (I've never used Eclipse), but hopefully it'll be as simple as (re)installing the gtk+2-2.10.13-i486-1 package (obtainable on the Slackware DVD in the "l" series packages or from a mirror).

Hi T3Slider, and thanks for replying.

I also found out that /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so was a symlink to /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.1000.13 - and also checked that both files existed and had the same permissions as the file you posted.

Furthermore, I reinstalled gtk+2-2.10.13-i486-1 as you suggested - but that didn't help me very much. After the package was reinstalled, I ran ldconfig and restarted the machine, just to be sure. However, when I attempted to run Eclipse after the reboot, I got the same error-message.

I've now managed to fix the problem. I had to run the command "xhost +localhost" as root, and afterwards I managed to run Eclipse without problems..

v3gard, I think your `xhost +localhost` "solution" is probably a pretty big security risk (search the forums). I can't help you further because of my ignorance on the issue, but hopefully someone more knowledgeable will chime in. I'm just saying that if I were you (which I'm not) I would look for a better solution.

Looks to me more like a problem with your X setup, eclipse is getting denied from connecting to your X server. Are you using XDM as your login manager? You could try using a different one (ie KDM) or even just starting x with 'startx'. Are you doing something strange like logging in as one user then running eclipse as a different user?

While I'm no expert on X security, I wouldn't think 'xhost + localhost' is much of a security risk as it only allows connections coming from your computer. Anyone logged into your computer would have access to your x screen, but if you are the only user that's not much of a big deal.

I had this same problem and hint was the last post about logging in as different user .... my terminal was running as root and i was logged on as a user .... when i exited root and ran native user it fired right up!!!

Excellent tip! That was my exact problem, Eclipse normally works fine on my machine, but I opened a terminal window while having root access then everything went haywire. Appreciate the help
