So I am trying to install Eclipse through terminal by watching a video, but when I attempt to run ./configure I get a message saying

bash: ./configure: No such file or directory   

I looked around and then realized there was no configure in the eclipse folder unlike the video I was watching. The files that are showing in the eclipse folder are

artifacts.xml  
dropins  
eclipse.ini  
icon.xpm  
plugins 
configuration  
eclipse  
features     
p2        
readme 

So I am wondering what I should do from here to install eclipse. I really would appreciate anyone who can help me to finish installing this program.

Thanks, Nova

Eclipse doesn't need an installation. Simply run

./eclipse

inside the folder. That's all.


Or create the desktop file. In my example, the Eclipse folder is located in /opt/eclipse

nano ~/.local/share/applications/eclipse.desktop

and add the lines below

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=Eclipse 
Comment=Eclipse Integrated Development Environment 
Icon=/opt/eclipse/icon.xpm
Exec=/opt/eclipse/eclipse
Terminal=false
Categories=Development;IDE;Java;     
StartupWMClass=Eclipse
