Installing and running Eclipse
What does not
Starting a new project, eclipse crashed
What was not tested
Make sure you operate on a clean WINEPREFIX (~/.wine)!
1. Prerequisite installation
You need a Win32 Java Runtime installed in WINEPREFIX (either JRE or JDK). Download it from Sun here.
2. Work around GUI glitches/problems
Winetricks will work around some problems.
$ wget http://kegel.com/wine/winetricks
$ sh winetricks gecko corefonts
You need cabextract utility for winetricks corefonts step. Make sure it's installed locally.
$ sudo apt-get install cabextract
$ sudo yum install cabextract
Use the following workaround:
$ wine ./eclipse -vmargs -XX:AggressiveHeap
You need 'corefonts'. These fonts are not part of wine and can’t be packed together with Wine
because of different licenses. Refer to HOWTO for instructions.
