Eclipse IDE Flatpaks
The best way to get Eclipse on Linux
If you are new to Flatpak, please first follow the Flatpak quick setup guide to install Flatpak on your system and configure the Flathub application repository.
Eclipse Nightlies (Platform I-builds)
Nightly I-builds of the Eclipse Platform are also available as Flatpaks.
The Eclipse Nightlies Flatpak repository has moved!
If you are still using the old repository at eclipse.matbooth.co.uk, then you will no longer receive updates. To continue getting the latest nightly builds, you must remove the old repository before continuing:
$ flatpak remotes -d | grep matbooth eclipse-nightly Eclipse Platform Repository http://eclipse.matbooth.co.uk/flatpak/nightly/repo $ flatpak remote-delete eclipse-nightly
Now you can add the new repository by following the instructions below.
You can add the Eclipse Nightly repository in one of two ways:
Installing via GNOME Software
On most distros, you can simply download Flatpak repository files and use GNOME Software to open and install them.
If you haven't already done so, first you must download the repository file for Flathub, from which for pre-requisites of Eclipse will be fetched. Then download the Eclipse Nightly repository file. Once installed, you can use GNOME Software to browse all the available Eclipse products in the usual way.
Alternatively, you can download one of the following Flatpak reference files and use GNOME Software to directly install your prefered Eclipse product:
The Eclipse Platform only.
The Eclipse SDK includes the Eclipse Platform, Java Development Tools (JDT), and Plug-in Development Environment (PDE).
Installing via the Command Line
If you haven't done so already, add the Flathub repository from which pre-requisites of Eclipse will be fetched:
$ flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
And add the Eclipse Nightly repository:
$ flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists eclipse-nightly https://download.eclipse.org/linuxtools/flatpak-I-builds/eclipse.flatpakrepo
Then you can list all the Eclipse products that are available from the repository:
$ flatpak remote-ls eclipse-nightly
And install your favourite Eclipse product by running one of the following:
$ flatpak install eclipse-nightly org.eclipse.Platform $ flatpak install eclipse-nightly org.eclipse.Sdk
