I loaded up a Git repository on my desktop into Eclipse. I was working on the repo on my laptop but now I want to be able to work on my desktop. When I try to run the .java file, the console says: Error: Could not find or load main class. On my laptop I noticed there is a .class file and .project file but on my desktop there is no .class file, just a .project file. I'm not sure why the program won't run because it works fine on my laptop where I initially created the project. I didn't push all my project files using Git, just the .java file in the src folder and the .gitignore file outside the src file.

I am a newbie at Java and Eclipse so I would appreciate the help.
Thank you!

Looking more closely at the differences would be a good idea. The .classpath file tells Eclipse where your source files are, and where they should be compiled to. Without it, it really has no idea what classes you're working on. Normally the JRE you're compiling against is referred to my its name in your Installed JREs preference page. You can make that more general and portable across machines by referring to it using an Execution Environment instead of directly by the name.
