export ECLIPSE_HOME="/opt/eclipse"

$ECLIPSE_HOME/eclipse $*
2. create a desktop icon
sudoedit /usr/share/applications/eclipse.desktop
[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Eclipse
Comment=Eclipse IDE
Exec=eclipse
Icon=/opt/eclipse/icon.xpm
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=GNOME;Application;Development;
StartupNotify=true
