How can I install Eclipse Helios for Ubuntu 10.04? I downloaded the package eclipse-java-helios-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz, unzipped it and doubleclicked the icon eclipse. Nothing happened.

Did you try running eclipse from the command-line? If so, what was the output? – bedwyr Sep 18 '10 at 19:15

Unfortunately, it does not seem like the Helios version of Eclipse has an actual installation, you're just going to have to open the eclipse file (not the one with the icon, I believe) you wish to start it. You can install Galileo from the Ubuntu software center, and then if you want to install the CDT (C/C++) or the PDT (PHP), you can do that from the help menu.
