comment “Pointers” with $ Syntax in /etc/environment
I tried this, and it didn't seem to work for me. I get the literal ${FOO} in the path.

comment “Pointers” with $ Syntax in /etc/environment
Thanks, will either update the paths to the full/literal paths or will use one of those alternate files. Appreciate the help!

comment “Pointers” with $ Syntax in /etc/environment
Thanks for the reply. From the post that you cited though: "Environment variable settings that affect the system as a whole (rather then just a particular user) should not be placed in any of the many system-level scripts that get executed when the system or the desktop session are loaded, but into /etc/environment - This file is specifically meant for system-wide environment variable settings. It is not a script file, but rather consists of assignment expressions, one per line. Specifically, this file stores the system-wide locale and path settings." Is that guidance incorrect?

Looks like that may have been a bad call, I can't install new software from within Eclipse now (I get a pop up that tells me that the installation hasn't been configured properly for software updates).

Ah, gocha. Thanks for pointing that out, I had it installed pre 12.04 upgrade but didn't reinstall it. I actually managed to get this working a different way, I just grabbed the latest Eclipse JEE (wanted this anyway) from eclipse.org/downloads/moreinfo/jee.php and dropped the contents in /usr/lib/eclipse and everything seems to work out of the box. I guess I'm not sure whether this will screw with automatic Eclipse updates via Software Center though.

I tried uninstalling/installing Eclipse via Software Center and it didn't really change anything, still no Java integration. Can you clarify what you mean by the PDE Package? Anything else that I may be missing?
