I installed latest version of Eclipse at /opt/ directory in my Ubuntu 14.04 machine. Then I created a soft link to open it through command line:

sudo ln -s /opt/eclipse/eclipse /usr/local/bin/eclipse

When I tried to open the Eclipse from the command line via command:

eclipse &

an error message is poped up with message:

The Eclipse executable launcher was unable to locate its companion launcher jar.

How to solve this problem?


It is usually related to eclipse.ini file where you can configure the path.
