Fedora: Install Eclipse IDE

Love it or hate it the Eclipse IDE is a comprehensive development tool that rivals or surpasses Microsoft's Visual Studio.  If you are working outside of the .NET stack Eclipse will probably have plug-in for your development platform. I myself find the UI a little bit overwhelming.  But for the price it's a pretty good value, which is free!

Here are the steps to install the Eclipse IDE on your Fedora instance:

1.  Log into your Fedora instance, and open a terminal session
2.  Type sudo su to switch to super user priviledges
3.  Now type sudo dnf install eclipse to install Eclipse

4.  Type y to confirm that you want to install

5. Launch Eclipse with the eclipse command, make sure you are not logged in as root user or a super user.  Accept the default "Workspace" by clicking "Launch"

6.  You will see that Eclipse is launched for the first time.  It's up to you if you want to send information to the JBoss Tools team.

    1. Ubuntu is a server, I wouldn't recommend installing Eclipse on it. Unless you are talking about the Ubuntu desktop. I haven't tried it myself but it should be very similar to Fedora's steps. Let me know if you are successful.

  2. Very useful information

  3. Nice Post, Thanks for sharing this information with us. Keep it up!! Artificial Intelligence Course
