Question Installing eclipse with alternate java location

My eclipse wont start due to it not finding java in a certain path. I was wondering if there is any way to change where it looks, or as im assuming, change the path variable to include the java directory.

there are several variables it might be looking for like
and so on
it may be helpful to export the JAVA_HOME in your .bashrc like

export JAVA_HOME

source ./.bashrc

to make the changes available for bash
