Well, I think I have Linux ADD. Not long ago, I was doing the distro hop around with Crunchbang, pure Debian, Linux Mint, and plenty of Ubuntu and associated derivatives. I eventually settled on Crunchbang, despite its few needs of tweaks for my preferences. However, more recently, I’ve felt the urge for a little more […]
Well, now that Eclipse and the required development environments have been installed, now would be a good time to launch the IDE! either type eclipse into the command line or find it under the program launcher for your distro. If this is your first time loading Eclipse, then you will be prompted to select a […]

No computer aid in the design, at […]
