This question has been asked before: How to install Eclipse? You can install your mentioned file using the method mentioned in one answer of my link. – Lucio Apr 24 '13 at 17:26

You don't, you extract the file to a directory then run the executable file located in the directory, eclipse.

I have my running out of the Downloads directory under the folder eclipse. It's all Java based itself, so it doesn't require an actual installation to anywhere but your user folder in linux. On first run it will ask your for the workspace folder in your user directory, select it. Then to move to another machine just copy this folder and the workspace folder and run there, your good to go.

tar xvzf eclipse-jee-juno-SR2-linux-gtk.tar.gz -C ~/. Then go to you extracted files and double click eclipse or run from terminal ./eclipse. Be sure to execute the command within the directory of extracted files. If errors occur run sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk openjdk-7-jre openjdk-7-doc. I forgot to type: it doesn't need to be installed.
