If I just click on the icon to launch Eclipse, then it fails directly, if I start Eclipse from the command line I have an pop-window that says 'an error has occured. See the log file null.', when I try to lauch Eclipse with the command line, I have the following exception:

$ ./eclipse

I tried several vm but the result is the same. I downloaded a newer version and it is a little bit better, Eclipse starts but if I want to create a project it crashes and I cannot find any log files.

Any help would be highly helpful!!

ok, I solved the problem and I can now start and play with eclipse. As I explained, I have a 'old' luna version that was working and which now broken. I downloaded a newer version that started but crash when trying to create a Project. I though I should solve the problem on my old version, but it was an error, I also made the error not to mention that I am working on kubuntu trusty. My new version failed with a message concerning "!_button._widget", I found here the solution. I opened the file "/usr/share/themes/oxygen-gtk/gtk-2.0/gtkrc" and change GtkComboBox::appears-as-list = 1 into GtkComboBox::appears-as-list = 0, as the link above said, now the newer version works
