Eclipse doesn't start in Ubuntu 14.04

I have a problem trying to launch Eclipse in Ubuntu 14.04. Splash picture pops up, then blinks, turns white - and nothing happens until kingdom come.
I have tried Luna, Kepler and 3.8 (from Ubuntu repository). EE and SE editions - both the same. I have also tried to launch them with different (oracle) vm - 1.7 and 1.8.
And yes, I have tried the

and simple workspace removal.

This is the only thing it says in console:

org.eclipse.m2e.logback.configuration: The
org.eclipse.m2e.logback.configuration bundle was activated before the
state location was initialized. Will retry after the state location
is initialized.

Java VM works fine - I can launch (for example) IDEA or

Any suggestions?


Try this:

1) Remove .snap from:


If you can't find it manually try this:

find /.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.resources/.projects -name "*.snap" -exec rm -f {} \;
