I'm running Ubuntu 14.04. When I open Eclipse PDT using the task bar, it opens as usual with the loading/splash screen, etc., but when it finishes starting up, I do not see any window or workspace or project windows at all. I can see Eclipse is running because the menu bar is there. The launcher icon shows that I have one project/perspective/whatever open (see image).

If I select window->new window then I can see everything --all my projects in the explorer, the source window, console, etc.

Can someone tell me how to unhide that window that is hidden when Eclipse starts up? Seems to me I accidentally fat-fingered some quick key or something at some point and my default window disappeared.

You probably working on updated 14.04 and trying install current stable, Mars.2.

You have to switch to GTK2 (see https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/t/1071268/), or use current Neon RC3 - https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/index-developer.php

I've been using Eclipse just fine for about a year. This problem only just started a couple of days ago after I clumsily hit some key combination. It is NOT an effect of any software update.

It's possible that your XMI file is broken. Can you remove WORKSPACE/.metadata/plugins/org.eclipse.e4.workbench/workspace.xmi and run eclipse with fresh perspectives?
