Just installed Eclipse 3.7.1 on my xubuntu 12.04. I used to have eclipse installed on my 10.04. You could choose new java project, java source files etc. but this version doesn't have these options. If i make a .java file, it's just plane text, no highlighting and no chance to compile. I have installed eclipse-jdt.
I looked https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EclipseIDE this manual. It tells to modify /etc/eclipse/java_home file but there is no such file on my system, just eclipse.ini.
Am i missing a step here or have i encountered some sort of a bug?
Didn't really solve my problems, but opted for this video tutorial: Install Eclipse Juno IDE into Ubuntu 12.04 . Not sure, if best option, but it works.
