Eclipse Galileo in Ubuntu Karmic

Whoohoo – upgraded to Karmic (ubuntu 9.10 (pronouced nine point ten not, one), and I can get the latest eclipse (3.51) by doing a:

sudo apt-get install eclipse

But what about all those eclipse plugins I hear you say – has anybody gone to the trouble of packaging them?

Thanks to Yogarine you can now do this:

Here’s the line to add to your software sources list:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/yogarine/eclipse/ubuntu karmic main

And then run the following on the terminal to add my gpg key:
wget http://www2.yogarine.com/eclipse-ppa.key -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update

Update: Now according to Zoresvit in #1 below – it’s as easy as:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yogarine/eclipse/ubuntu

Now you can install the Eclipse plugins like you would any other application in Ubuntu, e.g.:
sudo apt-get install eclipse-pdt eclipse-subclipse

And hey presto you have an IDE that can develop drupal modules without too much hassle.

    It is much more easier to import ppa repositories in karmic, since they have a separate command for that: add-apt-repository adds the repostitory and imports the key automatically.

    Quick question: does this suffer from the same problems as other non-Ubuntu packaging of eclipse–mouse clicks do trigger button events–or are these all the properly repaired versions?

    And there I was thinking I was going mad when clicking ‘Create Project’ wasn’t working. There is a fix at http://blog.export.be/2009/10/fixing-eclipse-for-ubuntu-karmic-koala-9-10/ and this seems to be in the Karmic /usr/bin/eclipse, but I stupidly had another local bash script launching eclipse (hangover from trying to get subclipse to work with 9.04 svn). Anyway once I launched eclipse with the Karmic script (/usr/bin/eclipse or Applications>Programming>Eclipse) all buttons worked.

    Short answer: Yes
