I recently installed eclipse the manual way. Extracting the file, setting up eclipse.desktop etc. It all works flawlessly. I also know it is possible to install eclipsee using
sudo apt-get install eclipse-platform. If I use this method I can use the command
eclipse in the terminal, and the program will start.
Now the manual way I used does not enable the
eclipse-command in the terminal. Instead if I use
eclipse-command it asks me to install eclipse from the Softwarecenter (
sudo apt-get install eclipse-platform).
I wondered if there was some way of setting up a command like this to start eclipse? If so, can I do it for other programs like Apache-Maven
I don't want to use "aliases" because I cannot setup and eclipse alias, when "eclipse" is listed in the apt repository. It seems as if only if I install the eclipse from
apt-get install I can start eclipse from a single command in the terminal.
I appreciate any help, and thanks in advance!
