The eclipse package files are not even found in the synaptic. I did not even find any positive search results of "eclipse" even in the hidden folders . How could I remove the junk icon of eclipse? But there are some results of eclipse in the root folder of ubuntu such as in usr/share/app-install/desktop etc. but I cannot delete it from the folder.
