Please add the package "eclipse-common" to the conflicting packages, or make it a dependency by removing the files provided by "eclipse-common" from your package.

The eclipse.desktop file is still using the old 4.7 version string.

I did not see the 4.7.1a update when using pacaur, perhaps it is better to step pkgrel for minor updates like this.

Just updated to the recent version and saw that there is an install script which manually calls gtk-update-icon-cache. With the latest Gnome package guidelines, you could omit this call by depending on the gtk-update-icon-cache package which automatically updates the icon cache via pacman hooks. See

What I mean is to use webkit2gtk instead of deprecated webkitgtk2 like the official eclipse-common package does.
This allows to use Eclipse with gtk3 and without having to install gtk2.

Updated package to reflect the suggested changes, apologies for the delay

Could this PKGBUILD be changed to use webkit2gtk instead of libwebkit (webkitgtk2)?
The new eclipse-common package in the official repo now also uses the newer webkit2gtk package.

Could you please change the installation directory from /usr/share/eclipse to /usr/lib/eclipse?

The eclipse packages from extra use the /usr/lib directory since eclipse 4.5.0. Many plugins found in AUR are already adapted to /usr/lib, making them unusable with eclipse-platform without tweaking.

Thanks for the heads up, I've updated eclipse.desktop. I couldn't find an .svg icon for Neon anywhere and the other Eclipse packages (-java, -cpp, etc) don't even use one, so I took it away and added the 256x256 .png instead.

Hey, the version string in eclipse.desktop should be adopted to 4.6.
Also a more recent eclipse icon could be used for this package.
Nevertheless nice work.
