I installed Eclipse 3.8 via Software Center. (This will pin the Eclipse icon to launcher)

Then I followed steps described here to install Eclipse 4.3

I also followed instructions here to create a new launcher icon for Eclipse 4.3.

I setup my soft link this way.

$sudo ln -s /opt/eclipse/eclipse /usr/local/bin/eclipse4.3

However when I do $eclipse4.3 from command line, the icon for Eclipse 3.8 will be focused. But in fact I am running 4.3

Any ideas? Many thanks in advance.

btw, I am using Ubuntu 13.04.
