For multi-user access, you’ll probably want to install this in the system-wide directory:
so, as root, copy the file eclipse-SDK-188.8.131.52-linux-gtk.tar.gz to /usr/local and uncompress it:
# tar xzf eclipse-SDK-184.108.40.206-linux-gtk.tar.gz

added to a system-wide environment settings file or to your local file ~/.bash_profile.
