I installed Eclipse following these instructions: How to install Eclipse?

Now when I go to Dash Home and type Eclipse. there is a white file but clicking on it doesn't do anything.

Then I opened Home Folder and searched for Eclipse and it showed a bunch of folders. I clicked on the one where only "Eclipse" is written and in there was a purple file named Eclipse. Clicking on it opened Java EE - Eclipse.

On the left side there is now a file with a question mark on it and it says "Eclipse" when going with the mouse over it.

Since the searching through the home folder takes some time I ask for a quicker method to access Eclipse.
