Extract the eclipse download and move to opt.
tar xzf wtp-all-in-one-sdk-1.0-linux-gtk.tar.gz
sudo mv eclipse /opt/eclipse
sudo chown -R root:root eclipse
sudo chmod -R +r eclipse
sudo chmod +x `sudo find eclipse -type d`
Then create an eclipse executable in your path
sudo touch /usr/bin/eclipse
sudo chmod 755 /usr/bin/eclipse

I had big troubles in getting subversive to work properly in linux, and the error message I got was “Unable to load default SVN client.” The reason was that it was missing the javahl library.

Then I had to set the path every time I started eclipse (setting the same option in eclipse.ini didn’t work):
eclipse -vmargs -Djava.library.path=/usr/lib/jni
