PyDev & Eclipse help please

Sun Jun 26, 2016 3:56 pm

Yes I did a search....Search results were not too helpful.

Would appreciate help getting this to work....

Latest Raspian
apt-get install eclipse

Go into Eclipse (3.8 since that is what it loaded)
Choose, Help, Install New Software
use the '' URL
Everything works through the install process perfectly.

However when I open Eclipse I do not have anything PyDev project or file options.
Click on the 'What is already installed?' - It shows PyDev is installed.

Thank you in advance.

did you succeed installing PyDev ?

I just tried... I am waiting for completion of the third attempt. Installing eclipse was real slow, and it's not any faster for PyDev. eclipse version is 5.8.1. I followed the same path you did. And it's the same as instructed in a course on Python on Learning LinkedIn (from When I searched about eclipse, I read on a site that eclipse installation was not fast. But that was done.

Now regarding PyDev: after first attempt I was suggested to restart eclipse. Did restart it, rebooted, PyDev was not installed.

After second attempty, PyDev help was installed... yea very usefull.

After third attempt, I was told the operation could not complete: "PuDev for Eclipse" will be ignored because it is already installed.

So PyDev is supposedly installed, but it's not showing under Preferences :?
