yesterday I launched Eclipse - after ~3 weeks not using it and ~two
"portmaster -a" runs during that period. However, there were none of my
As I was unsure of the Status of my Install I removed my ~/.eclipse and
~/workspace (moved the Projects Files away before) and started "fresh";
entered the Update-Locations and installed the Plugins. The Install went
fine. However, after a restart of Eclipse the installed Plugins were not
"visible" i.e. there was no PyDev Perspective, my PyDev Item in
Preferences, ... However, there also were no errors logged in the error log.
I tried several times with several Plugins; log4e, pydev, mylyn, apache
directory sudio, HgEclipse. Didn't get them to work and no error logged.
I also deinstalled Eclipse and installed freshly, in between checking
that /usr/local/lib/eclipse was really completely removed,
Still no success.
Now I just started eclipse with kdesu and installed pydev -- and I
indeed got the PyDev Perspective, Pydev-Item in the Properties etc.
Is there anything to consider when installing Updates as mere User? I
also recognized that my "User" Update Location List was empty, while the
"kdesu" List did contain the "usual" two Update Sites for Eclipse...
Would be cool to get this cleared; I'd prefer to install (and Update)
Plugins as "normal" User over running Eclipse as root to perform these
