i can't find what i install

Postby joepunk » Thu Oct 17, 2013 20:28

hello everyone i'm giuseppe and i'm new to this forum, it's my first post so i thought it was better to post it here in order to avoid placement mistakes :? go to the point now, i installed Eclipse Ejc 4.2.1 and Android SDK Update Manager from RIGO but i can't find them in applications menu. Looking for a solution on the web i read about a program called "alacarte" which makes you decide what you want to diplay or hide on menu but i can't even find my progams. they result installed on RIGO and i try to run eclipse from terminal too but nothing happened (i simply wrote "eclipse").
i also installed other applications as clementine and unetbootin and everything works fine.

sabayon (13.08) with GNOME (3.8.4)

Hi there!

Maybe you just wanted to install eclipse ide? If that's true I think you should install eclipse-sdk package. Because eclipse-ecj is just java compiler (alternative to javac) and is used inside of ide.
I also believe that android sdk update manager is available from inside the eclipse ide (Window -> Android SDK Manager). But I can be wrong ;)

You should remember that not every package you're installing is a standard system app which can be run from apps menu :)

Have a good time with Sabayon Linux!

hi sihox thank you for your answer you perfectly understood what i meant. i was looking for ide but apparently it's not avaible in RIGO :cry: i'm going to uninstall eclipse-ecj since i don't need.
i also installed virtualbox bin and it's the same of those apps :pale: have any suggestion?

Oh. I didn't notice the fact that eclipse-sdk is only in portage (i don't know why there is no binary version...).
To install it using portage you can do something like:
Code: Select all
emerge --sync
emerge eclipse-sdk
equo rescue spmsync

But you should know that it could take some time cause it will be compiled from source.

Hmm... That's strange. Virtualbox should be visible in apps. No other option...
Did you tried just hitting win-key (activities / overview) and entering virtualbox in search field? (under gnome 3 of course)
