Trying Eclipse on Ubuntu 13.04

I want to try Eclipse on my Ubuntu 13.04 . Installation process is quite straight perhaps useful for me in future use.

Checking Java

I already install Java before, check it first :

$ java -version

java version “1.7.0_25″
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.3.10) (7u25-2.3.10-1ubuntu0.13.04.2)
OpenJDK Server VM (build 23.7-b01, mixed mode)

Get nearest mirror from Eclipse website

As I’m from Indonesia I got mirror from University of Indonesia.

$ wget -c http://kambing.ui.ac.id/eclipse/technology/epp/downloads/release/kepler/SR1/eclipse-standard-kepler-SR1-linux-gtk.tar.gz

Checking md5 sum against :

bd98e1ac83cbc95909a3c856d3ced8a6  eclipse-standard-kepler-SR1-linux-gtk.tar.gz

$ md5sum eclipse-standard-kepler-SR1-linux-gtk.tar.gz
bd98e1ac83cbc95909a3c856d3ced8a6  eclipse-standard-kepler-SR1-linux-gtk.tar.gz
