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

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

resolving dependencies...

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

:: The following package cannot be upgraded due to unresolvable dependencies:

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

But I really hope Eclipse gets added back to the official repositories …

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

For those surprised that Eclipse is now in AUR, there's a discussion thread at

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.

Hi, appadeia! Great to see you decided to maintain the eclipse framework after it was discontinued in the official packages! I noticed it took you a few tries to get it right and I built two versions that weren't properly working. Is everything okay with pkgrel 5 and safe to install?

No; it's not on purpose. AFAICs, there's no way for makepkg in order to only download a few sources given on which binary package you want.

I am suprised to see that after the move to AUR all Eclipse variants seem to be downloaded (Rust, CPP, PHP), while I only 'asked' for the eclipse-jee variant.

Is that on purpose? If so, why? :)
