I have got a weird problem. I installed eclipse for c/c++ Development using the following:
sudo apt-get install eclipse eclipse-cdt g++
after i opened eclipse, i tried to make a new project, but i didn't get an option to choose between types of projects (c project/ c++ project/ Java project) but just the option "project". this project did not generate a src folder. i didn't see an option to create a src folder as well. how do i fix that?
i tried installing it manually with the download from their site, but the program didn't even launch.
This answer is for the packages that you installed in Ubuntu 14.04 by running:
sudo apt install eclipse eclipse-cdt g++
Open Eclipse and select Help -> Welcome.
The Welcome screen will appear. In the Welcome screen click Tutorials.
The Tutorials screen will appear. In the Tutorials screen click C/C++ Development.
A Help - Eclipse Platform window will open. Click Create a simple application.
The Help - Eclipse Platform window will jump to the Tutorial: Creating a simple application section. In this tutorial, you will use the CDT to create a simple 'Hello World' application. The tutorial has screenshots to make it easy to follow.
After you have finished following the Creating a simple application tutorial, don't delete the 'Hello World' project that you made so you can use it as reference material for making your next C++ project.
