Have you tried installing Eclipse from the "Ubuntu Software Center?" –  user68186 Sep 28 '12 at 17:40

It is easy, just extract it. You can do right click extract here or in the terminal

tar -zxvf eclipse-jee-juno-linux-gtk.tar.gz

You will see the eclipse file in the folder double click it and that is all.

Just decompress the downloaded file in the folder you want (can be /opt/eclipse)

To decompress it, you can do it via command line:

tar -zxvf eclipse-jee-juno-linux-gtk.tar.gz

Or from your folder

Right click on the file / extract here / move it where you want to install it

Then, you can add a shortcut to your desktop or add it to your Applications' menu doing:

Right click in Applications/Edit Menus
Go to your prefered section (usually programming)
New Item / Browse to /opt/eclipse/eclipse (if you installed it there)

Good luck!
