Prerequisites: a JRE has to be installed.

To use Eclipse you'll need two folders. One where you install Eclipse, the other one will be the workspace. E.g., /home/acraphae/devel/eclipse_installs/ and /home/acraphae/devel/eclipse_workspaces/gramps

Download an Eclipse package from Unzip the file into /home/acraphae/devel/eclipse_installs/ and run the eclipse binary in /home/acraphae/devel/eclipse_installs/eclipse when asked for a workspace, enter /home/acraphae/devel/eclipse_workspaces/gramps

Installing Pydev and Pylint

Follow the instructions on the pydev extensions site.

On my Ubuntu, the python interpreter can be found at /usr/bin/python

sudo apt-get install pylint Go to: window > preferences > pydev > pylint tick use pylint and enter /usr/bin/pylint as the pylint path.

Installing Subversion

Follow the guide on to install the Subclipse plugin.

Open the subversion perspective and add a repository. for working on the trunk code. Select Checkout project using new project wizard. Select pydev project wizard.
