I have downloaded Eclipse 3.6.1 as a tar.gz file from eclipse site. Then I extract using cmd: tar -zxvf eclipse-jee-helios-SR1-linux-gtk.tar.gz

after execute this cmd I got eclipse folder in this there is eclipse file. When I double click on this eclipse file I'm getting following error:

Could not display "/media/D-DEVELOPME/eclipse/eclipse".

There is no application installed for executable files

is there any solution for it?

As Marcos Roriz and Thomas Ward said in the comments

That happens because eclipse writes a lot of temp and plugin files and /usr/local is recommended to not allow apps to write (that is only read and execute there)

You may have better luck just saving Eclipse down onto your user directory - it does still operate from the user directory, even though you may want to place it in /usr/ or elsewhere. This is what I do to use it :/

install your eclipse in your home directory or /usr/local/ directory :D

  • yes, it's working fine if I extract under file System directory. but not working if I extract any other directory. – Silambarasan Feb 23 '11 at 1:33
