I am new to developing Linux. I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 and have installed Eclipse using SNAP. It appears to be working correctly. I now want to integrate the ARM tools into the Eclipse framework. I see from the gnu mcu eclipse WEB site that the ARM toolchain binaries are loaded using xPack. I don't know whether this is just the stand alone versions or the CDT version. If I go to Help>install new software in Eclipse, what site (respository) do I go to?

I'm not familiar with ARM but the steps to install the GNU MCU plug-ins seem well explained in the GNU MCU website [1].

Moreover, for anything related to C/C++ (i.e. the usage of CDT) I advise you to post in the dedicated forum. The GNU MCU website has also a support page [3] where they list several useful links for their users.

There are different compiler sets for ARMs in the Ubuntu repository.

For most embedded ARMs the arm-none-eabi toolset is fine.
In my Kubuntu 18.04 I have:

I have used the toolset for ARM7TDMI and different Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M4 processors. Most of the packages will get installed when installing the GCC,
just as root:
apt update
apt install gcc-arm-none-eabi

There is a version of the GDB debugger for multiple architectures, gdb-multiarch which handles the ARMs well.

For accessing an embeded ARM, you'll need a JTAG handler. I'm using OpenOCD which is also in the Ubuntu repositories.

The ARM compilers for ARM Linux (e.g. Raspberry Pi) are different beasts.
