Right Click and goto Permissions-Click on allow executing this file as program.
Move the file to .local/share/applications by following below commands:
Open Terminal and Paste:
sudo mv /home/USERNAME/eclipse/eclipse.desktop .local/share/applications/
Replace USERNAME with your username
launcher file is now set for current user.
Now launch eclipse by double clicking on the executable in Home folder.
Click lock on to the Taskbar if you want shortcut.
Last thing is to create a symbolic link in the bin.
sudo ln -s ~/eclipse/eclipse /bin/
Now you should be able to run the eclipse from terminal aswell by entering eclipse.
