In my Ubuntu 16.04, I installed eclipse. But Java perspective is not working. I have installed open-jdk but Java perspective is not coming up. When I tried they are getting the java perspective by default in same way.

Then might config file removing may do the work.

So, I need to remove the config file of eclipse(default) in ubuntu 16.04

  • If you want to do that in order to fix the java problem, I recommend you to uninstall Eclipse completely and installing it again. Remove it using sudo apt remove eclipse-*, sudo apt autoremove eclipse*, rm -r ~/.eclipse/. And install it from the official website. – M. Becerra Dec 18 '16 at 17:26
  • Unless you had manually installed (DONT DO IT OTHERWISE) Eclipse then you should also check for the directories /etc, /usr and /var and locate and remove the Eclipse related files. – M. Becerra Dec 18 '16 at 17:30
