Installing Eclipse Kepler in Ubuntu 12.04
First download the eclipse tar.gz package from http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/

We can do this from command line using wget also.

Make sure you downloaded the particular source for your system architecture. 32 bit or 64 bit.

keep the download in wherever you want the eclipse to install. In this example we are installing eclipse kepler on home directory of the user.


/home/randeep

Untar the source:
#tar xvzf eclipse-jee-kepler-SR1-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz
Now you will get a directory eclipse in /home/randeep

Now, we have to create a desktop file and place it into /usr/share/applications
#sudo vim /usr/share/applications/eclipse.desktop
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Eclipse
Type=Application
Exec=/home/randeep/eclipse/eclipse
Terminal=false
Icon=/home/randeep/eclipse/icon.xpm
Comment=Integrated Development Environment
NoDisplay=false
Categories=Development;IDE
Name[en]=eclipse.desktop

Now,
Drag and Drop eclipse icon from /usr/share/applications/eclipse.desktop to your Dash Bar.

Click on the icon and your eclipse starts.
