Question Installing eclipse with alternate java location


My eclipse wont start due to it not finding java in a certain path. I was wondering if there is any way to change where it looks, or as im assuming, change the path variable to include the java directory.

Thanks

there are several variables it might be looking for like
JAVA_HOME
SDK_HOME
and so on
it may be helpful to export the JAVA_HOME in your .bashrc like

JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/java
export JAVA_HOME

then
source ./.bashrc

to make the changes available for bash
