I was working fine with Eclipse for about a week but suddenly now when I start the eclipse, I get the following error:

invalid configuration location
The configuration area at ---'/home/yash/.eclipse/org.eclipse.platform_3.7.0_155965261/configuration' is not writable.  
Please choose a writable location using the '-configuration' command line option.

Please help.

From terminal, execute "ls -al /home/yash/.eclipse/org.eclipse.platform_3.7.0_155965261/configuration" and add the output to your question. –  BryceAtNetwork23 Oct 4 '12 at 18:40

Try setting yourself as the owner of the config-directory:

sudo chown -R yash:yash ~/.eclipse
