I am also using Ubuntu but I stop fetching Eclipse from Ubuntu repos as 
there was issues with file rights creating problem when fetching new 
eclipse modules via eclipse download manager. I don't know the current 
situation but I know Eclipse has set up a project, inviting linux dists, 
to try to overcome this type of problems. Maybe your problems are 
related to process and file ownership rights ? I suggest you download 
and install eclipse into /usr/local and make sure the eclipse user have 
all the rights he needs also on the geronimo files and processes.
hope this helps
