Eclipse fails to start up in Ubuntu after installing Oracle Java

Problem: Eclipse fails to start, with message –

java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: Could not load SWT library. Reasons:
	no swt-gtk-3740 in java.library.path
	no swt-gtk in java.library.path

Reason: Tries to find these libraries in the corresponding location for OpenJDK.

In terminal,sudo gedit/etc/eclipse.ini
Append line (VM args section being last): -Djava.library.path=/usr/lib/jni
Save close the file.
Eclipse should launch successfully now.
