Manual intervention required updating eclipse from * -> 2:4.17-3: remove eclipse-common; the package is no longer needed and will conflict.

yay or any AUR helper cannot resolve the dependency correctly because the .SRCINFO is invalid (

It is missing "depends = "...

@appadeia - Thanks! Installing eclipse-common before eclipse-java worked. I was mistakenly under the impression that yay would handle all the dependencies.

You need to have eclipse-common installed before you install eclipse-java. Most AUR helpers seem incapable of resolving the dependencies correctly when pacman would be able to resolve them correctly.

I'm getting the following error when I try to do a clean install on a fresh arch system:

warning: cannot resolve "eclipse-common=4.15-5", a dependency of "eclipse-java"

For anyone who wants to use a pre-built package I added “eclipse-jee” (and “eclipse-common”) to [coderkun-aur]:

appadeia: Thanks for adopting the package! It's quite important for me since I'm also still using eclipse.

I'm sticking to the last official package via downgrade in my development PC or the official installer via and keeping an eye to this new version on my spare laptop. It works fine, I've noticed the same as @paulsimon said, although selected in preferences it doesn't prompt for selection of workspace on startup.

The last official packager was Antonio Rojas ( if i'm not mistaken, maybe he could lend a hand guys. Cheers! Keep up the good job! And thanks once again for adopting the packages!

Unfortunately something is still not right with the build: although selected in preferences it doesn't prompt for selection of workspace on startup. Instead it simply creates a new workspace in the standard location and another directory p2.

As far as I know, this should work fine. I haven't had the chance to test it on a clean system yet, though.
