Prerequisites: a JRE (Java Runtime Environment) has to be installed.

To use Eclipse you'll need two folders. One where you install Eclipse, the other one will be the workspace. E.g., ~/devel/eclipse_installs/ and ~/devel/eclipse_workspaces/gramps

Download an Eclipse package from Eclipse.org. Unzip the file into ~/devel/eclipse_installs/ and run the eclipse binary in ~/devel/eclipse_installs/eclipse when asked for a workspace, enter ~/devel/eclipse_workspaces/gramps
