Have you got compiz running?

Also can you post workspace/.metadata/.log if it exists?

doesnt exist

Compiz (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compiz), long story

That .log file will be a hidden file if it exists.

can you run eclipse from the bash (command line).



cd <path to eclipse>
./eclipse -consoleLog


This will print any errors to the console.

Also...

Sometimes the log is stored too, configuration/<timestamp>.log

Actually it would be better to run this from the command line.



./eclipse -debug


You will get alot more info
