I need some help with „Run Configuration" dialog.
I'll try to describe it as best I can , without pictures.

In "project Explorer" I select my project for testing purposes I call it "A". Then I get to "Run Configuration..." dialog , I got that OK.

Select "C/C/++ Application " and get "A Debug " under it . OK .
In "Run Configuration " dialog I get "Name A Debug". In Name text box.

This is my first question "name " of what?

In "Project " text box I get "A" - OK so do now I have "project named" A? Again what is "A Debug" " name " for?

I can "Browse" for "Project" but why? I already have "Project"?

Now I need "C/C++ Application" .
Where do I get it from ?

I can "Search project..." but why I already have / know project, I need application.

Second main question what is my application and how do I get it into "Run Configuration " dialog??

BTW "Search project ..." brings up "PROGRAM SELECTION " not project selection.

"Browse " which belong to whom, bring s up "Application Selection" with all the files in the folder where the Eclipse resides. There are no "applications" there.

So now I am lost and "help" for "configuration" is not there !?

And "Run Congiguration" is telling me "Program not specified".

Third question what I is the unspecified "program" ?

Project / application / name / program ...
who is on first ?

Could some please hold my hand to get pass this?

Just it case it matters - running Ubuntu and Oxygen

You really should consult the documentation first.
The Run/Debug configuration dialog is here
for Oxygen: https://help.eclipse.org/oxygen/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.cdt.doc.user%2Freference%2Fcdt_o_run_dbg_pages.htm&cp=13_4_9
for neon: https://help.eclipse.org/neon/topic/org.eclipse.cdt.doc.user/reference/cdt_o_run_dbg_pages.htm?cp=8_4_9

For me, the "?" button on a Run/Debug Configuration dialog shows:
index.php/fa/30241/0/
And selecting the first option (Launch Configurations Common Tabs)
Brings up the above linked help text
If it doesn't for some reason, use one of the two links above.

The Name field is the name of the configuration.
It must be unique as they are global.
The only difference between a Run Configuration vs. a Debug Configuration is access to the Debugger tab.
Otherwise the configuration is the same for both

You can get into the configuration dialog by selecting the down arrow next to the Run or Debug icon
OR, from one of
1) Run --> Run Configurations ...
2) Run --> Debug Configurations ...
Then pick a launch configuration or create a new one.
https://help.eclipse.org/oxygen/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.cdt.doc.user%2Ftasks%2Fcdt_o_run.htm&cp=13_3_5
There's a similar one for Neon.
Starting here may also help: https://help.eclipse.org/oxygen/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.cdt.doc.user%2Fconcepts%2Fcdt_o_home.htm&cp=13

It is not getting to Run Configuration , it is

selection of C/C++ Application - which BTW does work somehow in my Oxygen 64 running on Ubuntu 32

it is the naming conventions and stuff like this

BTW "Search project ..." brings up "PROGRAM SELECTION " not project selection.

I am asking - is it "Application" or "program"?

Just noticed that eclipse uses "workspace" but loads "workbench" and clears ( poorly ) "workbench".

No, I do not need instructions how to read get and read "help" , it is the non descriptive or contradicting naming conventions.
It seems I have been into same when I first used Eclipse years ago.

Sorry, I guess your how do I get it into "Run Configuration " dialog?? misled me.

"Application" is synonymous with "program". On cell phones (and other places) they are called "Apps".
They are also known as "Executables".

The Search Project button searches the named project for executables to run or debug.

It appears you need to read the help.

My last post got lost and I really do not feel retyping it.
But I did check the help.
Now I have to ask silly but important for me question.
The Help dialogues are Windows OS style, I am using Linux Ubuntu.
It should make beans difference, but does anybody actually using Oxygen on Ubuntu and can "Run Configuration" without a hitch?
Just had to ask.


Allow me to clarify
In Windows dialog there is tree control with "C/C++ Applications"
assuming it is a real name of the folder / directory
where is it in Linux FHS ?
I do not get this nice tree to show on Ubuntu.
Maybe that will help to get me unstuck.

Its not.

Same place as on Windows, in the .metadata in files with .launch extension

Here is a Ubuntu screenshot.
index.php/fa/30277/0/

BTW I am really having a lot of trouble understanding what your problem is.
