I wanted to install eclipse juno on Ubuntu (apt-get installs an older version of eclipse). I downloaded the archive from the eclipse website and extracted it into the /opt folder, and then created a symlink in the /usr/local/bin folder.
Eclipse runs fine, but the problem is that dpkg doesn't know about it (e.g. apt-get remove eclipse doesn't work).
Is there a way to tell dpkg that I've manually installed a package?
Thanks in advance for your help.
