Hi

Personally I can only help you with the eclipse in Ubuntu's Software center. If you want the one from eclipse.org, I cannot do anything for you.

eclipse.org should have guides for how to install/use eclipse you download from there. As I recall it is basically "unpack and run the eclipse executable" (but I could be wrong).
  Be advised that the binaries from eclipse.org may be compiled against different versions of your system libraries; generally this causes crashes and I cannot help you fix those.
