These are just some quick notes on the various Java programs that I install. I’m sorry the notes are not very complete. I’ll do better next time, but I thought these notes might still have some value.
Web Browser Plugin
I installed Open JDK 7 and the Web Browser Plugin:
WebEx worked fine after installing the Java plugin. I was able to share my desktop with no problem. The only thing that didn’t work was using my audio:
I was pointed to another article that suggested installing the pango library. I checked, and I already have that library installed:
skp@pecan:~$ locate libpango /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libpango-1.0.so.0
Furthermore, it looks like that is more for displaying the desktop than fixing the audio device issue.
I downloaded the latest 4.2.2 version (3.8 is version in the Software Center) from the Eclipse Website. I just downloaded the Java EE, 64-bit version.
I had downloaded it in the download folder. So, I just extracted it there:
cd ~/Downloads tar -xzvf eclipse*.tar.gz
Then, I copied it to /usr/share:
sudo cp -r eclipse /usr/share/
Rather than put the eclipse binary on the path, I did a symbolic link to put it in the /usr/bin directory:
sudo ln -s /usr/share/eclipse/eclipse /usr/bin/eclipse
Next, I created the icon so that I could create the Menu shortcut. I had to convert the xpm:
cd /usr/share/eclipse/ sudo convert icon.xpm -resize 48x48 /usr/share/icons/eclipse.png
Then, I opened the Main Menu program and added a new Item in the Programming section:
After that, Eclipse launched fine. I am getting a little lazy, and rather than, documenting installing the plugins, let me just point you to my old post for screenshots. The short end is that I just added this site:
And, I added these plugins:
- Collaboration > Eclipse EGit
- Collaboration > Eclipse EGit Mylyn GitHub Feature
- Collaboration > Eclipse EGit Mylyn
- Collaboration > Mylyn Context Connector: Eclipse IDE
- Collaboration > Mylyn Context Connector: Java Development
- Collaboration > Mylyn Context Connector: Plug-in Development
- Collaboration > Mylyn Task List
- Collaboration > Mylyn Task-Focused Interface
- Collaboration > Mylyn Versions Connector: Git
- General Purpose Tools > Swing Designer
- Web, XML, Java EE and OSGi Enterprise Development > Eclipse Web Developer Tools
- Web, XML, Java EE and OSGi Enterprise Development > Eclipse Java Web Developer Tools
- Web, XML, Java EE and OSGi Enterprise Development > Eclipse XML Editors and Tools
- Web, XML, Java EE and OSGi Enterprise Development > PHP Development Tools
I installed Java 7 with Web Upd8′s method.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer
I installed the Scene building by downloading the DEB package from Oracle’s website.
When it installed, it complained about the “quality” of the package, but otherwise, it gave me no trouble:
Finally, to make developing with Java FX easier, I installed the e(fx)clipse plugin for Eclipse. Their install page is pretty good and detailed. I just added the Site URL to Window > Preferences under Install/Update > Available Software: http://downloads.efxclipse.org/p2-repos/releases/latest/
Next, under Help > Install New Software, I selected the new Site URL. This time, I just selected to install these 3 options:
- e(fx)clipse – Composite – FX Tooling
- e(fx)clipse – Single – Indigo & Juno PDE Support
- e(fx)clipse – Single – PDE support for e4
I downloaded the SDK from Google’s Website. I simply extracted the compressed file and placed it in my App directory.
Then, in Eclipse, I added the URL Site: https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse/ After that, I could install the Plugin for Eclipse:
Finally, under Window > Preferences and the Android section, I was able to set the Android Home directory to the SDK folder where I extracted the SDK.
