This question already has an answer here:
I just installed Eclipse Neon for ubuntu without using terminal , I unarchived it and ran the program and it installed like in windows. Now when I type eclipse in terminal it can't open it.
I am thinking that any software that is not installed using terminal can't be accessed from it, am I right?
It asks me to install eclipse by using
sudo apt install eclipse-platform , which means Terminal otherwise my OS has no idea if any program named eclipse is already installed.
