Eclipse complains about missing directory: is my Tomcat6 installed correctly on Ubuntu 11?

I installed Tomcat6 on Ubuntu 11 using apt-get install tomcat6. When I went to the Eclipse 'configure server' dialog I got the error (paraphrased): cannot configure, no config directory found.

I added a config directory under TOMCAT_HOME and then I get the message (again paraphrased): file servlet.xml not found in TOMCAT_HOME/config.

I'm thinking that possibly this is an Eclipse issue. Eclipse wants to see a deployed application before it can configure but it occurred to me that another possibility is that Tomcat6 was not installed properly, i.e. no config directory.

Can someone explain what is going in.

Thanks,

Bear,
Did you move my post because the problem I described is definitely not a Tomcat6 installation problem?

Thanks,

From your post, to me, it looks more like an Eclipse issue and not a Tomcat issue. Probably Bear thought the same.

Did you confirm your Tomcat installation? Start tomcat and point your browser to http://localhost:8080. You should get the tomcat default page.
After you have confirmed the installation, you might want to try hooking up Eclipse to it one more time.

I personally prefer the Sysdeo Plugin. You might want to try it out.
