comment symbolic link to /usr/local/bin not running the program unless logged in as su
I think I solved my issue by setting the permissions on the eclipse parent and the env variable which tells eclipse where the it's root dir is. I can't confirm until I try locally. Thank JMG for the edits.

It seems I might have solved my problem as noted in my comments to my question. I'll check it out in person first. I did echo $PATH originally. Thanks for your thoughts.

It appears there's an environment variable and I'm working on this via ssh without X11 working.

I changed the permission on the /opt/eclipse dir from 754 to 755 which now gives a different error when trying to start eclipse as regular user: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Eclipse:eclipse The Eclipse executable launcher was unable to locate its companion shared library.

comment Linux screen program: determining the communication details of a working connection
It turns out that com settings were not the cause of my problem. pySerial is a pretty good test of what connections parameters work, or what they do.

comment Linux screen program: determining the communication details of a working connection
The man pges state that when connected to a device, such as ttya, the com protocols are guessed by the driver and stored in a previous connection file. My installation ( Mint 13 ) does not have a .screenrc file in my home, nor can I find one yet.

comment Windows XP, write protect a partition on non-system disk
finally found diskpart and some limited instructions...not sure how to set the read-only flag but it's a start...btw, I'm planning on using parted-magic for some chores, can I use PM to set the flag..?
