Eclipse isn't working after themes installed [message #1697439] Thu, 04 June 2015 01:07 Go to next message

Is there a way I can revert back to my old eclipse settings? After I tried to install some themes/colour (none of which I liked), I am having problems with the program - errors coming up that were never there before,. I can type "syso" contr-space to get System.out.println() anymore etc.

Any idea how to fix this without losing my save files?

PS I also tried to go to preferences to revert to DEFAULT and it did not change anything.

You won't lose any of your code even if you delete Eclipse and pull down
the package again (a radical solution, but maybe simpler for you).

I don't recognize this behavior as related to the Eclipse themes you
(probably) got from Eclipse Marketplace. However, you should be able to
uninstall this plug-in via Help -> About, then click a button (just look
around for it in the About alert) to remove it.

If you decide to delete Eclipse and start over, your workspace(s) and
project(s) will still be there.

(Now, if you workspace AND projects are on the path eclipse/workspace,
then you will delete them: just move the workspace up and out of the
eclipse subdirectory to some other place before deleting.)

When you launch the new Eclipse it will ask you for your workspace. Just
navigate to the one you saved from before and there you are.

Hope this helps.

I reinstalled it but I am still getting the issue of syso cntrol space does not bring up "system.out.println". It still does not work on a fresh download and install. What gives?

Most likely something in your workspace has gotten messed up. Create a new Workspace (File > Switch Workspace > Other...) and then use File > Import > Existing Projects Into Workspace to pull your projects from the old one into the new one. I suggest enabling the option in the import dialog, "Copy projects into workspace."
