    Do you get any error messages? What happens when you try to run it?

    Do you have Java installed? Eclipse is a Java based application and unlike previous version, Java is not included with Lion.

    Eclipse is built on Java so you'll need to install the runtime. You can get it here.

    It sounds like Eclipse is working fine but isn't configured properly. Two things: have you installed the Xcode development tools (which installs all you'll need for C/C++/Obj-C development) and have you configured Eclipse to use those tools?

    I was informed I have to get a GNU downloaded to recognize the process

    GCC comes with the Xcode developer tools which are available on your install discs or in the Mac App Store.

    If you downloaded Xcode from the App Store, the Xcode app bundle will have been placed in the Applications folder. Do you see it there?

    Is it under utilities?
    I don't see the X code app,
    Is it a free download?
