Eclipse Indigo always opens default workspace [message #702068] Mon, 25 July 2011 19:27 Go to next message

I have Eclipse configured to always prompt for the workspace on startup but it always opens the default workspace (on Windows this is under C:\Users\<myUserName>\workspace. I definitely have the checkbox "Prompt for workspace on startup" checked, but whether it is checked or not, it always opens the default workspace.

This used to work under Helios. Any suggestions on how to get this to work?

No one has any comments on this? I even completely reinstalled Indigo, resetting all of my options, including the "Prompt for workspace on startup" option. However, Eclipse always opens this default workspace and I have to manually switch to my target workspace from here. I never used to have to do this under Helios. I assume this is not the intended behavior.

I've seen this on Helios as well. Not sure how it gets set.

This is controlled by a setting in the eclipse/configuration/.settings/org.eclipse.ui.ide.prefs file.

Set SHOW_WORKSPACE_SELECTION_DIALOG=true

I have the same problem. Yes, it is set to 'true', but it still does not work.

It might be due to the eclipse bug 204829. It is causing me fits with a product that my company delivers that is hitting that exact problem. So far, it looks like I'm the only one voting on that bug to be fixed, so go over to bugs.eclipse.org and vote for it!

I added the following line to the config.ini under the configuration directory, works for me.

osgi.instance.area.default=/home/user/mydefaultworkspace

Edit: This only works for changing the default workspace that loads when Eclipse start.

This is still a bug in Version: 3.7.2.v20120207-1839-9gF7UHPDFxGjd-PqDr2jX_4yKaumkoHTz04_q-q
Build id: M20120208-0800 which is used by Parasoft 9.4.0.37

You can work around this bug by invoking eclipse with the -clear option which resets something magical (can see what file this touches).
and allows prompting for the workspace to work again without the need to specify the -clear option again.
