    How to install Eclipse in LINUX?


    Hi

    I downloaded the eclipse-SDK-3.1.1-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz but it didnt manage to start up...i received this error

    No fonts found; this probably means that the fontconfig
    library is not correctly configured. You may need to
    edit the fonts.conf configuration file. More information
    about fontconfig can be found in the fontconfig(3) manual
    page

    I downloaded and tried to install fontconfig too but it didn't work...was wondering if anyone can help?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to forums!

    Is there any particular reason you want to do it hard way? Isn't all you need available thru package management for your distro?

    For instance, Debian: Debian -- Package Search Results -- eclipse

    Hi Segfault

    Thanks for your reply! I tried yum but it seems that only the system administrator has the rights to do that and unfortunately our SA is away for a while...so i wasnt really trying to be hard on myself!

    I'm using red hat linux x86_64...

    is there any other simpler C++ IDE for linux you would recommend?

    If you can live with editor then VIM is great for this.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Personally, I like nedit, make, and plain old gdb. The nedit editor has very nice language-sensitive syntax highlighting, brace matching, smart indenting, and all that stuff.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
