what is myeclipse?
Isn't there a description, where you got it?
Didn't you specify where to download it to?

You may start the download again, and by luck, the system tries to download it to the same place, and you may have a sharper look this time.

Or issue the command:

Perhaps it's already indexed and found.

The more slow way is:


If the name was myEclipse it will not be found!

If I remember aright, myeclipse is a RedHat version of Eclipse that's supposed to run faster due to extensive use of precompiled code. I haven't tried it myself - I think it needs RHEL.

In normal eclipse, however, you run the "eclipse" program which lives in the eclipse root directory. I'd expect myeclipse to do something similar.

It seems to me that the percieved problem is probably that Linux doesn't typically place an icon on the desktop when a new program is installed. This is in fact a good thing, since it would be difficult for the system to know which users' desktops to place it on. As mentioned above, you need to find the executable and run it from the command line. You could change yoru PATH variable to include the directory that contains this executable to make things a little easier. Alternatively, you can create a launcher on your desktop in order to run it "like you do in Windows".

I had to change the eclipse file on linux to executable manually (why?).
, perhaps that's true for eclipse too.
