READ THIS FIRST

Things have changed since this script was written. There is now a better way to install latest version of Eclipse IDE in Ubuntu, called umake ubuntu-make. In short, you only need one command to install (and also remove) Eclipse now:

umake ide eclipse

You still can use this project for other distributions of Linux and non-standard situations.

Eclipse Installer

Simple installation script for Eclipse (Linux only). Based on this comment http://askubuntu.com/questions/26632/how-to-install-eclipse/219974#219974 from maggotbrain (thank you!)

Just download the .tar.gz distribution of Eclipse (hope it works with any version).

In case of problems feel free to create an issue.

INSTALL

Just clone the repo:

git clone https://github.com/bepcyc/eclipse_installer

RUN

Chmod if you need it:

chmod +x eclipse_installer.sh

Put downloaded .tar.gz file into the same directory as script. Run the script:

./eclipse_installer.sh

or

./eclipse_installer.sh --quiet

If you don't want it to be verbose.

Run the Eclipse:

/usr/bin/eclipse -clean &

Enjoy!
