How do you install Eclipse Neon? Whenever I try to install Eclipse the install version is always 3.8 I don't know what to do. Please help me. XD

  • Yes apt only has 3.8 in a repository.

    A little off topic, but I've had a lot of problems with eclipse hanging and crashing the X server. This can be prevented by forcing the older version of GTK with export SWT_GTK3=0

Download it from http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/eclipse-packages/?osType=linux&release=undefined extract it. Run it.


You can't install a newest version of eclipse until you see a newest version in AppCenter When it will be a newest version clik on it than click update and that's it. I think you can install packages, but I'm not sure. BTW: Don't get mad! Have a nice day!
