I installed Eclipse last night (from the manual installer downloaded from the website, not the Software Center), and this morning I try to launch it, and it doesn't show up when I type "Eclipse" into the search bar. I remember that when I installed it, I stuck it in the default installation directory of
/root. Did I screw up? What should I do if I want to be able to run Eclipse?
My installation procedure:
- Went to this page and downloaded the 32-bit Linux installer,
- In that archive was a binary file. I opened a terminal and
sudoran the binary.
- A graphical installation program started and I installed Eclipse into the default location specified above.
- The installation program offered to launch Eclipse automatically, so I did so, used it for a few minutes, then closed the program and turned off the computer.
