Installing for Solaris-GTK

    I am new to Eclipse but have been experimenting with getting solaris-gtk running. It works fine, but I am unable to install EPIC since the update installation will abort due to unsupported configuration. Is there any way I can install EPIC by circumventing the installation check, or simply unpacking it? (It did not work to just unzip it in the plugins directory)

      Which version of Eclipse are you using?  I have been able to get it working under Fedora just fine so I would assume Solaris should be just as possible.  Granted this was version 2.1, not one of the milestone releases.

        I am using 2.3.1. Solaris-GTK is not part of the "officially" supported Eclipse os/ws combination. I had to do some modifications to make it work. Somehow the installer realizes that and prevents installation. I have tried to unpack everything, but to no avail. I had it running briefly, but I think that was because I was starting Solaris-GTK in a workspace for a Solaris-Motif installation (which has EPIC installed).

          Correction: I meant 2.1.3, of course.

          Well in theory you should just be able to download the zip files and then unpack them into the plugins directory.  In theory, when you go to open a new perspective, the Perl Perspective should be shown as available.

          Check your Help->About Eclipse->Plugin Details to see if it even recognizes that the EPIC plugin is installed.
