(This is a post from Brian McCutchon.)
All of the computers in the lab have Eclipse Kepler installed on them. Unfortunately, it is not installed in a convenient way. This can be fixed by running the following command from the terminal:
cp /home/share/vision2014/eclipse.desktop ~/Desktop/
This will copy the eclipse.desktop file to your desktop. It adds a desktop icon for Eclipse Kepler. If you want to also add Kepler to your launcher, do the following:
- Right-click on Eclipse in the launcher and select “Unlock from Launcher.” This removes the old Eclipse. It may not be necessary for you if you have not added Eclipse to your launcher.
- Open Eclipse Kepler from its icon on the desktop.
- In the launcher, right-click Eclipse Kepler and select “Lock to Launcher.”
Warning: Do not remove the desktop icon. If you do, the Launcher icon will also be removed.
For those who are interested, here is the source of eclipse.desktop:
[Desktop Entry] Name=Eclipse Kepler GenericName=IDE Exec=/opt/eclipse/eclipse Icon=eclipse Terminal=false Type=Application
It is an Ubuntu desktop file.
