What Eclipse version do you use on Ubuntu?

I downloaded the Eclipse long ago from Ubuntu Software center. The IDE keeps on hogging memory and most of the time is unresponsive. That's the reason I was wondering how you all use Eclipse on Ubuntu. I'm using 14.04.

Do you download the latest tar from the official repository? Also I've know that IntelliJ IDEA provides a community edition of its IDE. Though on Ubuntu Software Center the community edition is paid. So am I missing something?

Don't know what Ubuntu Software center is, but the IntelliJ community edition download is available as a .tar from here https://www.jetbrains.com/idea/download/

It's a fancy-pants GUI for apt-get (or maybe aptitude cli)

I see. I don't remember using it when I was on Ubuntu a few years back. There used to be something called "Package manager", from what I remember, which was the GUI thing that I sometimes used.

I think they stuck some tinsel on Package Manager and called it Software Center. It's the same thing.

Thank you Jaikiran, I will look into that link. I figure the same way I can install the latest Eclipse version.

Yes, even Eclipse has a tar download which it makes available on their download page. I rarely use any kind of package manager for things like IDE, Java runtime or such because it's far more easier and flexible to just download the tar/zip files from the project download pages and install it (which most of the times is just un-tarring the binary).

In my experience, no. I have found that the version of Eclipse available through the Ubuntu package manager is rarely, if ever, the latest. I recommend downloading the tar directly from their website, as Jaikiran does.

Again, Jaikiran is spot on with the install steps. Just unpack the tar somewhere and run the binary right out of the bin/ directory. Then upgrading to a newer version is just a case of unpacking the new tar over the old one.
