How do I start Eclipse from the BASH shell?
I've updated the eclipse.ini with:

-vm
/usr/lib/jvm/jre/bin/java

when I type ecplipse at the command line I get:

william@linux-1ro8:~/Documents/eclipse> eclipse
If 'eclipse' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
cnf eclipse
william@linux-1ro8:~/Documents/eclipse>

eclipse shon as executable:

william@linux-1ro8:~/Documents/eclipse> ls -l
total 604

Either the ~/Documents/eclipse directory has to be on your PATH or the current directory (.) has to be on the PATH. If not, ./eclipse should run the eclipse executable in the current directory.

Thanks.

Trying the current directory option I get:

william@linux-1ro8:~/eclipse> ./eclipse
bash: ./eclipse: cannot execute binary file

Did you download the 64-bit version and try to use it on a 32-bit machine?

No - 64 bit machine.
I am running through Oracle VM VirtualBox.
Any issue there?

OK, I have 64 Bit OpenSuse running through VM VirtualBox
I installed the 32 bit Eclipse, and it launches. I'll see how it holds up.
