My favorable method for installing is always apt-get. Fortunately, eclipse is now included in apt-get repository. However, when I installed it with apt-get, it works fine for programming languages such as C/C++; but when I try to install Android Developer SDK, it gives an error for missing org.eclipse.ui.

I found several questions about this error, but no solution for apt-get install . The only solution is to install classic eclipse from source. I believe there should be a solution to install org.eclipse.ui with apt-get install.

I installed with these comments sudo apt-get install eclipse, sudo apt-get install eclipse-jdt, sudo apt-get install eclipse-cdt ... what plugin should I install? I did not find any document for installing eclipse plugins with apt-get – All Feb 24 '12 at 19:04
run sudo aptitude and search for everything eclipse. On top of this you can install plugins directly while running Eclipse, via Help->Install New Software – Karlson Feb 24 '12 at 19:11

You will need to install all of the following packages and dependencies:


Once that was done I was able to install Android SDK without any issues through Eclipse. I am running on openjdk.
