Find the subdirectory into which you wish to "install" it. (Eclipse
isn't installed in any formal sense, it's just unzipped or exploded
where you want it.) Then type:

$ tar -zxf eclipse-jee-juno-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz

It will create a new subdirectory, eclipse. If you're unhappy where it
ends up, then do

$ mv eclipse <wherever you're rather have it>

For example, I put mine on this path:

/home/russ/dev/eclipse

Hope this helps.

Thanks! This helps a lot.

I didn't no there is no installation needed.

I simply unzip it to the place you suggest and it seems working.

Thanks again Smile
