1. Open Terminal and go to eclipse directory. My eclipse is located in Application directory.
2. Go where eclipse.ini is located. I am using Eclipse Ganymed so it looks like this:
- I use vi for changing the file:
- Make your changes and safe it. Here is an example for the file:
-showsplash org.eclipse.platform -startup ../../../plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.0.101.R34x_v20080819.jar --launcher.library ../../../plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.carbon.macosx_1.0.101.R34x_v20080731 -vmargs -Xdock:icon=../Resources/Eclipse.icns -XstartOnFirstThread -Xms128m -Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m -Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.5 -Dorg.eclipse.swt.internal.carbon.smallFonts
Note: Of course you also can use Finder to navigate into the directory and you can use Textedit for doing the changes. To open the Eclipse.app file you have to do "right click" on the Eclipse symbol in your eclipse directory and select 'show packagecontent'.
