I'm trying to install the VisualVM plugin for eclipse, on my Ubuntu linux.

I'm following the instructions here.

So I've done the installation part, and the plugin is installed to eclipse.

Now for the configation, I need to enter the path to the executable.

Any idea of where this would be?

I've looked at /bin/ there's no file named visualvm or anything similar. And there's just jar files in the extracted download.

Where did you install VisualVM? –  Michael Hampton Dec 4 '12 at 0:17
    
I used the eclipse 'install software' option and pointed it at the extracted folder. –  user1068446 Dec 4 '12 at 0:43
    
Just installing the launcher doesn't actually install VisualVM. They are separate products. –  Michael Hampton Dec 4 '12 at 0:46
    
@MichaelHampton - Thanks. If you write that as an answer, I'll accept it. –  user1068446 Dec 6 '12 at 20:56

Try using the find command, like so, or similar.

sudo find / -exec grep "*visualvm*" {} \; -print

Also, look in /usr/bin, /usr/lib, and even ~/workspace/.metadata/.plugins.

I don't use Eclipse myself, but I have a distant memory from when I did.
