It won't work if you placed eclipse folder other than / partition.

For example if i placed eclipse folder in the desktop,i have to follow the below steps.

  • So go into the eclipse folder via terminal,

    cd ~/Desktop/eclipse
  • Give the executable permission for the file eclipse,

    sudo chmod 777 eclipse
  • Then run the eclipse file by,

    sudo ./eclipse
