View Full Version : [SOLVED] Install Eclipse C/C++ on 10.10

April 10th, 2011, 10:59 PM
I've been trying to get this to work for a while. I installed Eclipse from the software center with the intentions of adding the C/C++ plugin/module. Unfortunately, I couldn't figure out how to do that. Then I downloaded the tar.gz but couldn't figure out how to get that to install.

Any help would be appreciated.

I just did:

sudo apt-get install eclipse-cdt

Maybe things have changed in the past couple of years, but I tried installing Eclipse from Synaptic and entered a world of hurt. Installing it manually made everything work better.

Still, I had a hard time getting the CDT to work. It was not as flexible and forgiving, for example, as Visual Studio when it came to adding files in arbitrary locations to a project. Cooperation with Perforce was also shaky.

Good luck.
