Installing the Eclipse IDE on Debian Wheezy

# The Eclipse “tar.gz” package can be retrieved from
# https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/
#
# This will extract eclipse to “~/bin” and create a dynamiclink towards
# “~/bin/eclipse/eclipse” in “/bin”.

cd ~/downloads
tar xvfz eclipse*.tar.gz -C ~/bin && sudo ln -s ~/bin/eclipse/eclipse /bin

# This will configure “~/bin/eclipse/eclipse.ini” for succesful launch.

sed -i 's/--launcher.appendVmargs/--launcher.GTK_version\n2\n--launcher.appendVmargs/g' ~/bin/eclipse/eclipse.ini

# This launches the Eclipse
