Every time I try to open Eclipse in Ubuntu 12.04 I get an Unsatisfied Link Error and it will not open. I have recently installed the java JDK and Android SDK, could this be the problem? I followed this tutorial.

Here is the log info:

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and removing the ~/.eclipse directory but it still doesn't work

on Ubuntu 12.04 32 bit. I change the command to:

ln -s /usr/lib/jni/libswt-* ~/.swt/lib/linux/x86/

And on Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit use:

ln -s /usr/lib/jni/libswt-* ~/.swt/lib/linux/x86_64/
