How to setup ADB for Linux terminals

Run adb from terminal
Since the new Eclipse and Android SDK install I had to redo this:

Open your .bashrc, located in your /home/"user"/ and add this:

# Android tools 
export PATH=${PATH}:~/android-sdk-linux_x86/tools 
export PATH=${PATH}:~/android-sdk-linux_x86/platform-tools

Save the file, then in a terminal, type in "source" to refresh the terminal

Eclipse - Dependency Issues

Failure to Launch
Early this morning I loaded up Eclipse after the latest update(Indigo). To my surprise, all my extra plugins such as ADT and C/C++ were gone. Of course I tried to install them manually again via "Help > Install New Software" and ran into "Dependency Issues". After plenty of installing and re-installing and considering going back to an older version, further Googling led me to just REMOVE all the Eclipse files INCLUDING config files:
Run these commands
sudo -i
 - login as root
apt-get autoremove eclipse
 - unistall
rm -r /usr/lib/eclipse 
 - remove all config files

apt-get install eclipse 
- reinstall
