    Question Where to find eclipse

    I'm looking if eclipse is available anywhere in the repos. It doesn't appear to be in the regular non-oss (or oss) repos for 11.3 or 12.1 - is there an additional repo that holds it? (like sun:/java: for the jdk)?

    I cannot answer your question about the repos since I did not check them
    (it sounds you already did) and want only share the experience with you
    that I install eclipse for the last 8 years always from eclipse.org
    (Java development is part of my job) and I know that the three
    developers which are also using linux in our office are doing the same
    (two of them use ubuntu one beside me uses also openSUSE the rest of
    course uses windows) and we all are satisfied over the years with this
    solution and do not see a benefit to install a version from the
    corresponding linux repositories. The handling of eclipse updates and
    plugins is just easier that way, keep this in mind.

    It does make building SuSE Studio appliances rather annoying

    Since you asked that in the application forum I did not assume that you
    use it for an appliance. Yes for that it is not convenient, why not make
    use of the obs and build your own rpm's for it?

    That's easy enough to work around, though - upload the installer and then
    install it in Testdrive, capture the installation results, and feed it
    back into the build.

    Option 2, use something like checkinstall to build an RPM of the
    installation and use that RPM to install in your appliance.

    Heya,

    I'm no linux ninja, but I need to install Eclipse for my studies. How do you install from the .tar.gz-file?

    You unpack the tar.gz (in your desktop environment you can usually do it
    with a right click on the file in the file browser and select to
    uncompress it).
    The eclipse tar.gz (if you downloaded the correct one) contains binaries
    which are ready to run. So after unpacking you simply have a directory
    containing a lot of files and subdirectories. On e of this files has the
    name "eclipse" you can try to start that simply by clicking on it (check
    the rights of that file beforehand and make sure it is executable).
    You may want to create a symbolic link in your ~/bin (that's what I do)
    directory for it or create a desktop symbol to start it.

    I have taken Eclipse indigo tarball and extracted it, but when i try to clicking the ~/eclipse/eclipse file, there is no response whatsoever. I checked in the properties of the file and the checkbox for "Allow executing file as a program" is checked. I am on Open suSE 12.1. Can someone please guide? I've been searching the web to find a solution for quite sometime now
