I work in a disconnected environment, i.e. no internet connection. So anything I install must be installed from a CD/DVD rom. So I have no access to the marketplace and can’t do the drag and drop installation. How do you install your theme under such circumstances?
I have Eclipse Oxygen CDT/PTP.

When on a machine that’s connected to the net, you could make a mirror of our update site. You can then copy this mirror to your offline machine, and then install using the Local button in the “Add Update site” dialog to install from this site.
To make a mirror, execute the following commands from within the folder containing eclipse.exe, where mirrorfolder is the destination into which you want to mirror the site.
eclipse -nosplash -verbose -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.metadata.repository.mirrorApplication -raw -source http://www.genuitec.com/updates/webclipse/ci/ -destination mirrorfolder
eclipse -nosplash -verbose -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.artifact.repository.mirrorApplication -raw -source http://www.genuitec.com/updates/webclipse/ci/ -destination mirrorfolder
see: https://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_p2_Repository_Mirroring for more details. Note, progress is not displayed during the mirroring operation, please wait for the eclispe process to naturally exit each time.
Hope this helps.

I got the following error:
org.eclipse.m2e.logback.configuration: The org.eclipse.m2e.logback.configuration bundle was activated before the state location was initialized. Will retry after the state location is initialized.
I tried it with a few of the options detailed in the mirroring article and always got this same error.
Any ideas what it means?

Rather than debug your configuration, the most expedient solution would be to just get a fresh install of a basic eclipse distribution, and run the above commands from within that installation instead of your current installation.
The Eclipse IDE for Java developers: http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/eclipse-ide-java-developers/oxygenr
Should be a fine distribution without any complications added by too many additional plugins.August 31, 2017 at 2:42 pm #535299
That appears to have worked. I now have a repository that I can burn onto a DVD and take in next week for installation into my dev environment.

While I’m quite confident your offline repo will work, it might be prudent to do a test install with your Internet shut off (or disconnected from WiFi, etc.) and this site. That way if there are issues, we can address them before you are cut off.
Have a great weekend!September 10, 2017 at 3:18 am #536135
