Any help would be very appreciate, please.

I could fix it. First if you created another workspaces in your attempt to fix the problem, you could delete those before if you like. Then run the below command from the terminal.

$ eclipse -clean

Select the default workspace, Eclipse now will run normally. After that you will can run Eclipse normally by “Activities overview” (Gnome Desktop).
