I am a beginner C++ self-teaching student. I need it to improve my job performance but I am not supposed to spend time learning it in the workplace, so I am setting up a development environment at home. Eclipse looked easier than a vim+gcc setup.
I have tried many ways to install the latest eclipse CDT without success. In order to get an up-to-date version (not the one in USC), I downloaded tar.gz from here (http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/download.php?file=/technology/epp/downloads/release/neon/3/eclipse-cpp-neon-3-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz) and "tar -xzvf" it to my /Home/opt. I opens right away, there is no installer as in other cases I found here.
It is installed but I can't find anything related to C++ there. It still looks like a Java only installation. No new C++ project option. What should I do? I do have gcc installed
gcc version 5.4.0 20160609 (Ubuntu 5.4.0-6ubuntu1~16.04.4)
I found tons of Error messages, but they are dated from yesterday, when I tried to install it via USC and add CDT through help>install new software option. I removed the old install through "sudo apt-get remove eclipse". How is that possible to have log messages from an old installation? One of them says:
