    Update Eclipse 3.5 to 3.6

    My Ubuntu 10.04 already had Eclipse 3.5 along with Android stuff. I downloaded a new version Eclipse 3.6 Helios Java EE for Ubuntu and unzipped it. So how can I get Eclipse 3.6 running when I type eclipse at terminal or click on the menu (Applications -> Programming -> Eclipse)

    It seem to Eclipse 3.6 is not add to the Ubuntu repository yet.

    What is the location of Eclipse 3.5 on my Ubuntu 10.04?

    Don't know about the installation, but "whereis eclipse" command should show where it is, you can also see in the properties in Synaptic Package Manager.

    Re: Update Eclipse 3.5 to 3.6

    To get your 3.6 download running:

    - Unzip the download into a directory you have complete control of, usually a directory under your username, preserving folders.

    - Create a shortcut to the eclipse executable, usually in the resulting "eclipse" folder.

    - Run the program using the resulting shortcut.

    - When your new eclipse install starts, point to your existing workspace.

    You can continue with both 3.5 and 3.6 installed using the same workspace, or you can remove 3.5 by deselecting it from your software management program (one of several ways.)

    Good luck!

    Re: Update Eclipse 3.5 to 3.6

    Another counter intuitive phenomenon !
    Is it restricted to Linux ?

    Is it just me or am i seeing an "Update" button greyedout when selecting the "eclipse 3.5" item in the "installed software" list ?

    Why not use this apparent feature ?

    Anyway !

    That will always be grayed out till there is an update for Eclipse package available from the Ubuntu team.

    Is there any Eclipse 3.6 PPA?

    I second this question (suggestion?)

    How hard is it to make a PPA? With all the eclipse users out there, this seems like something that would be done already. Maybe I'll give it a shot some day, when I have time...

    Re: Update Eclipse 3.5 to 3.6

    When I found this ppa, I thought "At last!", 'cause I badly need 3.6 for my work...

    But once upgraded, Eclipse 3.6 won't run: even if called with "-clean", all I get is the splash screen, then it quits without any message whatsoever.

    What is going on?
