Hi all,
II am running fedora 15 as my OS,and have JDK 7.0 currently installed .Also i had to install eclipse for projects,so i installed eclipse helios 3.6.2.
Are the versions incompatible?Because everything is working just fine,but after launching eclipse,I dont see any Java perspective in the "Perspective " option.
What to do?Please help me out.I am in a fix.

How did you install Eclipse?

Via the Fedora package manager? If so, did you install all of the packages necessary to do Java builds?

Or by downloading from the Eclipse web site? If so, which package did you download.

I always download from the Eclipse web site, that way I know exactly what I am getting and don't have to hassle with Linux's incomprehensible package names.

I agree. Here's the link:
