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....

RasPi3
Latest Raspian
apt-get install eclipse

Go into Eclipse (3.8 since that is what it loaded)
Choose, Help, Install New Software
use the 'http://pydev.org/updates' 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 5.1.2.2 is installed.

Thank you in advance.

Hi,

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 lynda.com). 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 :?
