Pydev installed but cannot use it

  • I have just installed pydev through the repository but once finished, eclipse doesn't show any option. Window > Preferences doesn't show the pydev option. File > New > Project doesn't show pydev projects, and so on. It's like there were no pydev at all, but i have checked that it is installed going to Help > About Eclipse SDK > Installations Details and there is PyDev for Eclipse.

    I'm not really sure if this can be a problem between eclipse and pydev versions (3.5.2 and respectively).

    Do you have any clue of what is happening and how to solve this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Are you on windows or linux? Do you have some error in your error log?

    The usual suspect is that the installation failed because you can't write at the needed folders. (linux permission or in windows the UAC).



  • Hi Fabio,

    I'm on GNU/Linux. As I said, Eclipse recognize that pydev plugin is installed. About perms, shouldn't eclipse install the plugin in my home?

    Thank you.

  • By the way, I forgot it. I cannot give you any error log because the installation of pydev finish successfully! :-s
