    I did not know that this came compressed and nothing else. All you do is use:
    $ tar xvzf eclipse-java-galileo-linux-gtk.tar.gz
    then:
    $ cd eclipse

    then use:
    $ ./eclipse

    This works for me.

    That's ridiculous. It sounds like a Windows infomercial, or like they're apologizing for Linux to people who use Windows and decide to read their books and learn something about Linux.
