I have actually two questions.

  1. I was using Eclipse in ubuntu 12.04LTS, it was working fine. Then I install Aptana Studio 3 and after installing Aptana Studio 3 Eclipse stop working. Any thoughts about this ?

  2. I install Aptana Studio 3 in /opt/Aptana_Studio_3. How can I remove Aptana Studio 3 so I can install again Eclipse, actually I want to switch back to Eclipse.

  • Ia this Aptana stuff from Ubuntu's own repositories or from somewhere else? Installed how? --- In any case, you'll probaby have to install eclipse again if it got damaged somehow. Be sure to remove any configuration in your account that might be left over. – vonbrand Jan 24 '13 at 19:44
  • No, Its not a stuff from Ubuntu repositories. I first download .zip file from its website aptana.com and then extracted to /opt/Aptana_Studio_3 directory – FishEye Jan 24 '13 at 19:50
  • Then it should be a simple matter of deleting it from there. But I can't see how it breaks eclipse for you. Did it do some configuration in your account? Did the installation request changing system-wide or account configuration (edit files, ...)? What exactly does "eclipse is broken" mean? – vonbrand Jan 24 '13 at 19:54
  • Actually Aptana is based on Eclipse before installing Aptana as a pre request I had to install this package sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk libjpeg62 libwebkitgtk-1.0-0 git-core I followed these instructions to install Aptana. samclarke.com/2012/04/… – FishEye Jan 24 '13 at 20:04
  • those look inocuous (Java, JPEG, web, and git). That could screw up your eclipse if it meant removing stuff on which Eclipse depends, but I doubt apt would have you let you do that without any warning. Is Eclipse still installed (it might have get erased by the above)? – vonbrand Jan 25 '13 at 12:27
