There's your problem.. To asscociate an icon to the launcher, it must be called from a .desktop file. Theres not enough characters in this to describe the process, so I will edit my answer shortly...

Just for clarification, are you running Eclipse from an icon on the launcher or dash, or are you running the command to open eclipse from the command line (or from within Nautilus for that matter)?

Are you trying to do this in GUI or command line? By Default the GUI hides the .desktop when they are given Execution permission. The way to do it in Nautilus is to browse to File System > usr > share > applications find the Eclipse shortcut, right click then click Properties, click on the Icon in the top left, then browse to a suitible icon.

There is plenty you can do before completely re-installing Ubuntu. The OP wanted a way WITHOUT deleting data, so they have shown interest in using those tools. Re-installation should be a last resort, not a first resort.

I have no idea why disabling noveau would break grub, but to fix common boot errors, i use boot repair from an ubuntu live disk - see option 2 here: help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair
