Target version:TXM 0.7.7

Description

Update on linux have no effect: the plugin are installed and loaded but the older ones are still activated.

TXM can't update Toolbox because the p2 process "is not permitted to do an update" (maybe because there is 2 configuration directories (in .txm and in /usr/lib/TXM/TXM)

Solution

- don't use the "-configuration" runtime option (Eclipse failed to manage several configuration directory: install configuration and .txm configuration)
- use the "-install" runtime option
- save preferences in the Platform.getUserLocation() directory (to avoid saving preferences in the .txm/configuration directory)
- retrieve preferences from this folder instead of Platform.getConfigurationLocation()

Validation test

- Windows XP: OK MD
- Windows 7 32bit: OK MD
- Windows 7 64bit: OK MD
- Mac OS X: OK MD
- Ubuntu 32bit:
- Ubuntu 64bit: OK MD
