Code: Select all
~ $ apt-cache policy eclipse
eclipse:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: (none)
  Version table:


Confirmed :(

But that version was old anyway (3.5 IIRC). http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/ now has 3.7 :)

I'm guessing it would be because the eclipse in the sid repo depends on newer versions of packages you either don't have or cannot be upgraded unless you get those from sid repo as well. But I'd be very careful if you choose to upgrade from 2 different repos; I certainly wouldn't recommend it. It can, and most probably will break something else.

twa, that's the linux Mint latest repo, we're on Debian testing :)

That said, it certainly would be safer to upgrade from that repo than sid, IMHO.

hi alirezaimi, what happens if you try to install first eclipse-jdt and eclipse-pde?
i'm not saying it will work, but you can give it a try;

anyway just to clarify one thing here eclipse was removed from testing on the 9/08/2011
http://packages.qa.debian.org/e/eclipse.html
twa still has it on the latest repo because when update-pack2 was frozen and released eclipse was still on testing

I use eclipse extensively and need it for programming for android, I found this problem also and tried to install a new version, it installed but got errors tried to point it to java sun for updates and got errors also.
The solution:
Just download the thing off of eclipse website itself, shove the thing in your home directory and run it from there instead as a standalone without going through all the headaches trying to make it work through the repos which have two different versions and some work some don't some that do work won't update :cry:
Save yourself the headache, just put the thing in the home directory volia its done, it updates as well :D
I got it running and updating and android is running just dandy.
Hope this helps solve this issue as it gave me a headache for about an hour until I said heck with it and dropped the download eclipse into the home directory, when all else fails that works.
There seems to be some changes going on where some things are getting updated and some are not which leaves half of it working and half of it doesn't, like the ffmpeg and the libavdevice53 libavformat53 libsound2 etc etc etc, just have to be paitent till it all catches up with each other on the updates unless you want to try other repos which can turn the whole thing into one big mess (as I tried once and decided against it after that because I had to do a reinstall to fix the mess I made of it all :lol: )
Get it from here http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/ extract it to your home directory and start coding. (yes it should be that easy, it was for me).
Hope this helps you out as it should work for you. If not let me know.

No problem, I had enough headaches trying to get eclipse running in various linux versions, either it wasn't in the repos or if it was it would install but wouldn't connect, linking it to java then sometimes it would update sometimes it wouldn't, usually always getting an outdated version, I just shove it in the home folder now, it is quicker. simple and always works without any headaches. and the beauty is you can save the whole things to an external (adding the .eclipse folder) and you don't have to do it again and you always get the latest updates and versions by making the updates automatic.
Eclipse did a good job in making this IDE.
If you use it for android you should be able to save that along with it to an external, saving your android folder in the home directory and the .android folder as well (if you don't know, just press ctr + h to see the hidden files (.eclipse .android) in the home directory.
I usually back it up in an external hard drive about twice a month plus any other folders I use with it, including the workspace folders I use.
That way if you do a reinstall or you bork the system all you got to do is drop them back in your home directory and your back where you started from.

Add this to your Synaptic repositories:

Code: Select all
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian testing main contrib non-free


Click Reload
Search and add Eclipse
Click Apply.

Let me know if it works.

Thanks Arthur
Just a side note though, although its nice to have it installed this way, if it updates or the chance of it going away again it might mess up like it did before, it happened to me twice already, and kind of gets ya when you really it, plus reinstalls of linux can make this a headache if anything chaanges also.
This is why I finally opted to just download it from the eclipse site and run it from my home folder instead, plus you can just save it to an external and shove it back into the home folder without going through the headaches again, and if you program for android like me, you just copy all that stuff over also to an external and just pop it back into your home folder and your up and running in minutes after a reinstall.
Just to give everyone another option if your worrying about reinstalls again, I found shoving everything in the home folder works perfect so far and is so easdy after a linux reinstall to just shove the eclipse folder <9and android folders if you do that) back into the home folder without any headaches.
If you want to go through the install of eclipse through snyaptics feel free to do so, make sure you check what version it has first to make sure its the one you want.
If you have issues updating it this way read above, you might have to link it to sun instead. (that issue was the reason I do it this way now, too many headaches with installing it.
The standalone works great.
