Fixing Nsight Eclipse launch error on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS for Jetson Xavier

In order to get Nsight Eclipse launched without any errors there are two things that need to happen:

  1. Make sure the java-1_8_0-openjdk package is installed on your system
  2. Launch nsight with the following command:
    1. nsight -vm /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/java


Here are a couple sites that helped me to get Nsight Eclipse Edition launched on the Ubuntu 18.04 LTS host machine for Jetson Xavier:
