Hi there!

I am wondering if I can disable plugins (or complete features) through the eclipse.ini or any other configuration file, so that these plugins/features are not loaded on startup.

Something like:
[...]
--ignoreBundles
org.eclipse.epp.usagedata.gathering
org.eclipse.epp.usagedata.recording
[...]

We don't like to manually uncheck the plugins in the Preferences->General->Startup and Shutdown window.

Markus

Hi!

I found the solution:

The file eclipse/configuration/org.eclipse.equinox.simpleconfigurator/bundles.info contains all plugins that are loaded on startup. I just removed the bundles we don't like. The seems to work!

Just a note, that's a file generated by p2 and the director and the profile for that installation. Changing it can prevent further software updates or be overridden (and added back) on the next update.

If you have a complete install, you can use the director to remove those 2 bundles from the p2 profile (which will remove them from the bundles.info) ... assuming the profile will allow it. See http://help.eclipse.org/indigo/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv/guide/p2_director.html
