Hello,

I have searched through the forum but I can't really find an answer to my question.

I'm not entirely new to Linux, however I am using openSUSE (13.1) for the first time. It's a pre-installed company PC (I don't know much about the configuration and our Linux guy has a tendency to answer questions by simply doing in seconds what I was supposed to do). Also, until now all I knew was apt.

Question: is it possible to install Eclipse through YaST (I added all the repositories YaST listed)? If so, what's the repository I need? I can't find anything but two compilers, something for debugging and a library. Oh, and an ego shooter. Yay!

I know I can use the packages from the website (those give me Java errors, but I'm sure that's a quick google search), but it bothers me that YaST can't find it since other people seem to have installed Eclipse that way. It's not the first program I can't find with YaST, either, probably just coincidence though.

It's probably a very stupid question, but I hope someone will answer it anyway.

No idea, but usually everyone just downloads the zip from the eclipse
website. Just unzip it into your home dir and you're (usually) done.

Unless you're running a really strange OS/configuration, never think of
not downloading Eclipse from eclipse.org. openSuSE is not a strange
OS/configuration.
