running eclipse tells me install wasn't finished (in a non severe way)

Bug #220173 reported by Jay on 2008-04-21
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
eclipse (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: eclipse

Xubuntu 8.4 RC AMD64 desktop
Running Eclipse prints:

jay@jayu1:~$ searching for compatible vm...
  testing /usr/lib/jvm/java-gcj...found
Could not create /usr/local/lib/eclipse/.eclipseextension. Please run as root:
    touch /usr/local/lib/eclipse/.eclipseextension
    chmod 2775 /usr/local/lib/eclipse/.eclipseextension
    chown root:staff /usr/local/lib/eclipse/.eclipseextension

Installing it should have done that, presumably.
