Usually such applications store user related files in the user's home
directory. See if there is such a file (perhaps '.eclipserc') or such a
directory (perhaps '.eclipse/') in your ~/ directory.

Already tried starting eclipse from a terminal window, like e.g. xterm or
konsole? There might be some output on stdout.

Anything in /var/log/messages or /var/log/warn? (I guess not, but it doesn't
hurt to look there anyway)

Does eclipse come with documentation? That would be a good starting
point... ;)
