I have this version of Eclipse on Ubuntu 12.04 but it works for me.You may assign "F3" to another action, for check it go to System Settings select Keyboard and then goto shortcuts tab, find there for "F3" shortcut, If you find it change it to another keyboard shortcut. You should also check your eclipse because it work completely for me.

i looked up in the keyboard shortcuts sections.. but there was not shorcut listed for F3. Moreover, The icon for eclipse is also not appearing in my launcher, instead a ? icon is appearing – vipin8169 Aug 31 '12 at 10:18
neither the other shorcut i.e. ctrl_click works for me :/ – vipin8169 Aug 31 '12 at 10:22
If there was not any shortcut for eclipse, i think your eclipse has problem. If you want your eclipse appear in your launcher and search result you have to install "Main Menu" (alacarte) program from software center and add tour eclipse as an item in its categories. – Saeed Zarinfam Aug 31 '12 at 10:24
it was earlier not appearing in launcher and search results, but now it is appearing – vipin8169 Aug 31 '12 at 10:25
