Eclipse SDK 3.2.2 to Ubuntu 7.04
The first thing to do is download the current version from http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/. Again, this is something we could grab from a repo, but if I'm using Linux, I may as well have control.
Why Eclipse? No Dreamweaver for Ubuntu.
After saving it to the Desktop, and after it's download, I opened up a Terminal.
sudo mv eclipse /usr/lib (to move the Eclipse directory).
sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/eclipse /usr/lib/eclipse/eclipse 300
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/eclipse/startup.jar /usr/bin
Adding it to the menu involves right clicking on the Applications item in the menu, and selecting Edit Menus.
Add a New Item under whatever menu (for example, Programming). Browse for an icon (/usr/lib/eclipse/icon.xpm), enter eclipse into Command, and whatever makes the most sense for Name and Comment.
We still have to install Apache, at least, and because I am who I am, ColdFusion as well.
