    I am using Debian-Linux, not Ubuntu. However, when I tried to complete the Launcher Properties window, it did not launch the Eclipse application due to /usr/share/applications/eclipse is not a valid executable line.

    Please email me if you can find a solution for this problem. Thank you very much.

      I’ve updated the article and included latest installation instructions of Eclipse Photon and Oxygen IDE. Also you can install Eclipse using Snap as shown in the article.
