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
2) Download the required Eclipse from the official site by link
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.
