hey guys,

i recently installed eclipse and i'm having some trouble with it. i've tried "completely remove" via synaptic, but when i reinstall it (via synaptic) it gives me the same issue - an improper configuration file. i'm positive that this error is caused by complete removal not deleting all of the necessary files. can someone please shed some light on this for me?

regards,
damon j.

Removing the program as youhave found out doesn't touch the config files - these are hidden in your home

Open nautilus do a Ctrl+H too view hidden files and then look for .eclipse (guess at name) and delete it

Any file willbe hidden if you put . in front of it

Hey again,

So I attempted this. I've tried removing the ~/.eclipse folder before. I ran the following:


# apt-get remove --purge eclipse
$ rm -rfv ~/home/.eclipse/
# apt-get install eclipse

and when i tried starting the program, it gave me the following error box:


An error has occurred. See the log file
/home/damon/.eclipse/org.eclipse.platform_3.2.0/configuration/1214510427792.log.

and if i view the error log, here are the error messages:

~/home/USER/[...]

~/home == /home/USER/home

hey guys,

i recently installed eclipse and i'm having some trouble with it. i've tried "completely remove" via synaptic, but when i reinstall it (via synaptic) it gives me the same issue - an improper configuration file. i'm positive that this error is caused by complete removal not deleting all of the necessary files. can someone please shed some light on this for me?

regards,
damon j.

To remove software packages completely use autoremove.


sudo apt-get autoremove eclipse

This will remove eclipse and all unused dependencies.

Also delete the ~/.eclipse folder in your home.
