I'm working on Eclipse Indigo on Ubuntu 12.04.
I'm trying to completely uninstall Eclipse (with Synaptic Package Manager + Mark for complete removal), but when I reinstall it, I clearly see that it has kept all parameters, and history, which is what I'm trying to get rid of. I also tried the following.
sudo apt-get purge eclipse rm -r ~/.eclipse/
As suggested here, no luck either.
