    Eclipse startup error

    Hi, when I try to open Eclipse, I get this error: "An error has occurred. See the log file

    I'm not quite sure where to go from here. I'm not quite comfortable in Ubuntu yet, and don't know where to go to find this log file.

    It's given you the full path to the file ... copy/paste that full file name onto the end of a commad line to look the file over. I'd recommend a view command, so type view add a space character then paste in that filename, and press enter, so you end up with:
    view /home/my_name/.eclipse/org.eclipse.platform_3.7.0_155965261/configuration/1340776456187.log
    Substitute the command of your choice for view (more, less, etc.)
