Identifying the GTK version your Eclipse IDE is using

To identify which GKT version your Eclipse IDE under Linux is using go to Help -> About -> Installation Details and select the Configuration tab. Look there for
org.eclipse.swt.internal.gtk.version property. You can also use the “Copy to Clipboard” button so that you can copy the details into a text editor to search for it.

In my case it shows: org.eclipse.swt.internal.gtk.version=3.12.2 which obviously means that I’m using GKT3.

Thanks to Alexander Kurtakov for the tip.

    This is only true for Eclipse 4.5+ (Mars). I do not see org.eclipse.swt.internal.gtk.version property displayed in my Eclipse 4.4.2 (Luna SR2). Mars Milestone 5 (4.5.0M5) does have this and shows org.eclipse.swt.internal.gtk.version=2.24.23 on a CentOS 6.6 machine.
