    installing eclipse IDE

    i'm having problems installing the eclipse IDE for java developing

    currently running ubuntu 8.04 x64

    first i downloaded the file
    Eclipse Downloads

    unpacked it, went into it's directory and found an executable file named "eclipse". when i run it, it gives me this:

    JVM terminated. Exit code=13
    -jar /usr/local/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.0.1.R33x_v20080118. jar
    -os linux
    -ws gtk
    -arch x86
    -launcher /usr/local/eclipse/eclipse
    -name Eclipse
    --launcher.library /usr/local/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_1.0.3.R 33x_v20080118/
    -startup /usr/local/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.0.1.R33x_v20080118. jar
    -exitdata ef804d
    -vm /usr/bin/java
    -jar /usr/local/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.0.1.R33x_v20080118. jar
    in a popup window.

    what exactly does this mean? do i need to update java?

    my javac and java commands work fine. i've been working away at test java files for the past couple days and they've been compiling and executing smoothly.

    You can try installing eclipse with synaptic or apt-get install eclipse
