When I installed Eclipse and ran it, I got this error message:

An error has occurred. See the log file

where bensalem is the user, and this destination of the log file, I didn't get it at all. Please help.


.eclipse shows that the folder was hidden.Go inside /home/bensalem via nautilus and then press ctrl+h to see the hidden .eclipse directory.


Run the below command on terminalctrl+alt+t to directly view the log file,

gedit /home/bensalem/.eclipse/org.eclipse.platform_3.7.0_155965261/configuration/1388736884438.log
