How to set up Eclipse SWT?

Hello,

I downloaded eclipse-jee-helios-linux-gtk.tar and installed it on my machine (Xbuntu 10.4).

It runs, but it appears SWT is not configured, and I can't find mention of an SWT layout tool for designing.

I'm very surprised the SWT jars are not configured - isn't this Eclipse's approach to GUIs? And so I think there must be something wrong with the file or...? But I downloaded it from Eclipse.org.

Can someone shed some light on this? Is this somehow how it's supposed to be? Can you point me at a site that explains how to set it up properly?

Thanks for any pointers.
Cheers,
Bret

This is good advice:

Developing SWT applications using Eclipse

This approach fulfills the javadoc functionality in Eclipse. You simply import the SWT zip download as a project in Eclipse and then add that to any other project to inherit it.
