It seems that configuring Eclipse to work with Ubuntu is always a bit painful, mainly tptp and subversion. This post is all about tptp (test and performance tools for Eclipse). I have tested with Ubuntu 32 bit edition. First of all, of course, you’ll need to install tptp from ganymede. When you are going to profile some java app, you’ll get an error code IWAT0435E, saying that the agent could not be started.
You’ll need to install libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2_2.95.4-27_i386.deb (no amd64 available) as the ACServer apparently was compiled against that old gcc version. Unfortunately, Ubuntu does not provide this library anymore, so you’ll have to grab it from Debian repos http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/gcc-2.95
Just click on it, and Ubuntu will install it. If you like command line (like me) and use 64 bit, then feel free to open a shell and type:
sudo dpkg –force-architecture –install libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2_2.95.4-22_i386.deb
Go to eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.tptp.platform.ac.linux_ia32_4.4.1.v200808290100/agent_controller/bin, and edit the files ACStart.sh, ACStop.sh. In first line, when it says #!/bin/sh, it should say #!/bin/bash.
The cool tptp now should work. Have fun, eclipse is an incredible ide 😉
