What is the correct way to install Eclipse CDT Oxygen.0 on Ubuntu 16.04?
I want to install Eclipse CDT from scratch, i.e. I do not yet have Eclipse installed on my system at all.
I have downloaded the latest version of the Eclipse package (which, at the time of my writing this is "CDT 9.3.1 for Eclipse Oxygen") from https://eclipse.org/cdt/downloads.php.

eclipse-cpp-oxygen-R-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz. Extracting this file results in a folder called

I don't see an installer, but there also doesn't seem to be a need to "install" anything, I can just run the eclipse executable from right there. Should I just manually move the

Thanks for any help!
