When I executed eclipse for the first time after a normal installation, I got an error pointing to the attached log file.

The installation of the package `libxtst` fix it.

Additional info:
* ArchLinux x86_64
* eclipse 3.7.2-2

Steps to reproduce:

# pacman -S eclipse
$ eclipse

Steps to fix it:

# pacman -S libxtst
This task depends upon

Can't load library: /home/guide42/.swt/lib/linux/x86_64/
/home/guide42/.swt/lib/linux/x86_64/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

That does not look like the libraries from the Arch packages...

Same thing happened for me on ArchLinux x86. Fixed worked, thanks.
It's intuitive to install the package of the missing library filename, but you can never be sure.
