I can't lock eclipse to Unity Dock or Docky because it is saved in my home, I would like to extract the binary to the bin so I can lock it there. The problem is, when I install it from software center or terminal, it just shows up with an error(can't pull it up because it isn't installed). Also, I get funky compiler errors, it is showing almost every single line has a problem in it. They are compiler errors I have never seen before, I tried using the openJDK 6, 7, the Oracle JDK 7, and yet none of them work.

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I suggest you install using the Software Center and post the compilation errors you are seeing; trying to install into /usr/bin manually sounds like no fun. There are instructions for doing a user install here: help.ubuntu.com/community/EclipseIDE#User_installation –  David Edwards May 29 '12 at 13:11
Just a note: Plug-ins are stored per user. So installing from repo gets a global eclipse where locking to unity works(that part is a duplicate for sure). Then installing the CDT plug-in works just fine (read as I have it installed and functioning on 12.04 LTS x64 personally). –  hbdgaf Jun 3 '12 at 9:09
