Eclipse – the environment for developing modular cross-platform applications.
I’ll describe the procedure for installing Eclipse in Ubuntu:
1) Install Java via the Application Center in Ubuntu by typing “OpenJDK Java 7” or by link apt://openjdk-7-jre
2) Download the required Eclipse from the official site eclipse.org
3) Unpack the downloaded archive from Eclipse to the /opt/ directory.
Operations can be performed in the terminal, the terminal is opened by the key combination Ctrl+Alt+T.
For example, go to the root user rights, go to the /opt/ directory, download the archive, unpack it:
sudo -i cd /opt/ wget http://LINK_TO_ARCHIVE sudo tar -zxvf eclipse-*.tar.gz
4) The last step is to add an Eclipse launch label via the terminal.
For example, through the nano editor (Ctrl+X to exit and y/n to save or cancel):
The contents of the eclipse.desktop startup shortcut:
[Desktop Entry] Name=Eclipse 4 Type=Application Exec=/opt/eclipse/eclipse Terminal=false Icon=/opt/eclipse/icon.xpm Comment=Integrated Development Environment NoDisplay=false Categories=Development;IDE; Name[en]=Eclipse
Done, Eclipse can be run through the created shortcut.
