I have downloaded the adt-bundle for linux and extracted it. Moved the extracted folder in "android" directory in my /home directory. I have also installed openjdk 6. So when i try to run eclipse, Pypar2 window pops up and i just don't understand how do i run eclipse.

If i uninstall PyPar2, it says 'Could not display "/home/siddhartharao17/Androi...20131030/eclipse/eclipse".' There is no application installed for executable files. Do you want to search for application to open this file?

Please help me!!

what was the command did you tried to uninstall pypar2? – Avinash Raj Feb 9 '14 at 5:14

The problem is that the executable doesn't have the required permissions.

Simple resolution without using terminal - right-click the executable -> properties -> permissions tab. Check the checkbox that says "Allow executing file as program". Done!

Using terminal - navigate to your dir. Execute the following - chmod 711 eclipse
