How to run Eclipse?


I recently upgraded from FC3 to FC4. I heard that FC4 would include Eclipse, but I can't find it!
In /usr/share/eclipse/ there are only three directories: "configuration" and "features" are empty, "plugins" contains (in subdirectories):
./org.eclipse.jdt.core_3.1.0:
about.html
jdtCompilerAdapter.jar
jdtcore.jar
.options
plugin.properties
plugin.xml

I also can't find an Eclipse entry in the KMenu under "Programming".

Can you help me?

Thx, max

Are you certain that it was installed, it probably was included in fc4 but it probably wasn't a default app. If you did a custom install, it will give you the option to pick which software that you would want to be installed. Im think that you can also use Yum. I hope that helps.

Hi Thug,

thanx for the hint, I could install it using the FC4 DVD.
But when I started it using the KMenu, I got

I am having this exact same problem after installing eclipse via the RPM's. Were you able to find a solution to this error?

Thank you.

I am having exact same problem

I have same problem. I don't know if I missed something in the install, but I did install practically everything under "Development". File which this error claims to be missing is also in the directory that is specified in the error. Same file is also under /usr/lib64 but not under /usr/lib. That should be fine since i have x86_64 architecture (??). Same problem happened when I installed new Eclipse from eclipse.org build specifically for x86_64. I also installed new J2EE from java.sun.com. I also redirected most java related links in /etc/alternatives to new Java SDK location and. Java itself seems to be running ok. I also have installed every package with yumex that starts with gtk.

I never had this kind of problems with i386 Fedora. It seems that x86_64 distro is _far_ from working. Any ideas how to solve this problem would be appreciated.

I believe Eclipse is a portable application. This means you can put the Eclipse folder anywhere you want and it will run. If you link to it you will need to link to the folder location where you have installed it. So if you move the folder you will have to create a new symlink. All of the runtime files must be in this folder. If I am not mistaken GTK and SDK must also be installed on your system....At least this is what worked for me.

Hi,

Yes that was the case with 32bit version, but now I have tried to run eclipse on 64 bit AMD and it didn't work that way. I tried 3.1.1 version that comes with Fedora and I tried 3.1.2 version downloaded from eclipse.org. Every time it gives same error:
eclipse.buildId=M20050929-0840
java.version=1.5.0_02
java.vendor=Sun Microsystems Inc.
BootLoader constants: OS=linux, ARCH=x86_64, WS=gtk, NL=en_US
Command-line arguments: -os linux -ws gtk -arch x86_64

!ENTRY org.eclipse.osgi 2006-02-18 15:14:19.450

Well I can't understand what is the problem, when that file is in fact in that very directory and also in /usr/lib64/!!!

I got frustrated and downloaded 32bit version which works out-of-the-tarball (in very same 64bit system). Clearly this is a bug either in 64bit eclipse or in 64bit Fedora.

Ok. This was clearly user stupidy error. I had installed i586 jdk from Sun cause I didn't scroll down to download page and didn't notice 64bit version there...

So when I installed 64bit JDK everything works as it should.... well you live and learn...
