I installed TPTP for Eclipse just to have a look at it. But I can't get along with it, so i want to uninstall it. Eclipse doesn't let me:

Under Help -> About Eclipse -> Installation Details TPTP is listed, but "Uninstall..." Button is Grayed out!

So, how can uninstall these many plugins? I don't need any of them ...
I'm using Eclipse 3.7 Indigo

TPTP is currently not supported for Eclipse 3.7 (Indigo) so I am wondering how you did manage to install it.

Did you install a zip Archive?

I installed it under Eclipse 3.6 weeks ago but never used it since then. Now i updated to 3.7 and noticed, that TPTP isn't supported any longer and i wanted to remove these plugins from Eclipse. Can't remember how i installed it, i forgot about it :/

On a personal note: To avoid such situations I usually refrain from updating an eclipse installation but instead start with a fresh install and reuse a copy of the old workspace with the new eclipse. Your mileage may vary.

You may try the following:


  1. Shutdown Eclipse
  2. Remove features/org.eclipse.tptp.*
  3. Start Eclipse again


This won't get rid of the plugins, but your eclipse installation will no longer notice them.

Hope this helps

Thanks Heiner,
that helped to solve the problem with these plugins. I deleted the named folders above and they don't appear in any lists any longer. So some more clear overview is given now Smile

Best regards,
sigmatix
