I use eclipse from time to time. When my system reaches that point where the splash box goes grey, I see it pop up a box asking me where the workspace files are stored. it seems you don't get that far.

The output on the console doesn't seem to contain errors (it seems like it's just information output), but clearly something is going wrong.

Eclipse uses jave and is very particular about its tools chain. There are a few things you can try.

The settings are stored in your home directory, in ~/.eclipse. You could try renaming this directory and restarting eclipse - it'll get re-created with default settings. You'll lose any personal preferences you've applied, but it might start up.

You could also try a different version of Java. You might have to visit the site to get a different version, but they do exist for Linux. You could also try switching between java versions using the 'alternatives' tool. I hate this tools with a passion, so I always the use the graphical version, galternatives.
