I'm a Java developer who wants to start with C/C++ now. I have an Eclipse JDT installation, and today added the CDT feature plugin from inside Eclipse (Help->Install new software..-> and so on)

I restarted Eclipse, but I cannot see the C/C++ perspective and cannot create anything else than Java project. Googled on it, but found nothing special. Then I opened a terminal and did a sudo apt-get install eclipse-cdt. Started Eclipse again but nothing changed. I know there are downloadable Eclipse CDT packs, but I would not like to use them.

What should I do?

Using: Eclipse Galileo on Ubuntu 11.04

More From » 11.04


The apt package will definitely not install CDT to your existing eclipse "install" unless you used apt originally. Even then it still might not (not sure if it's supposed to).

Also, make sure that when you run eclipse you do

whereis eclipse

to make sure the path is pointing to the new eclipse-cdt version.

I usually do:

sudo updatedb
locate eclipse
