Workspace in use or cannot be created - Eclipse

5:17:00 PM Posted by Satish Kumar , , , , , 1 comment

Eclipse is saying that the "Workspace in use or cannot be created"  in Ubuntu. I say ok, probably a lock file was left behind and so I do:

rm ~/workspace/.metadata/.lock

No error (so the file was left behind), yet the problem is not solved. I tried clearing out the workspace path. Same problem.

Googleing, I found this post, so I ran:

sudo gedit /usr/share/eclipse/configuration/.settings/org.eclipse.ui.ide.prefs

removed the RECENT_WORKSPACES line. It works now.
