Prerequisites: a JRE (Java Runtime Environment) 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., ~/devel/eclipse_installs/ and ~/devel/eclipse_workspaces/gramps

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

Installing Pydev and Pylint

Get pydev from the pydev download site.

Follow the installation tutorial

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.
