Python in Ubuntu

My favorite development environment for Python in Ubuntu is Eclipse. The following steps describe how to get an up and running development environment on your Ubuntu box.

1. Python

Python usually comes with the bundle but just in case:
$ sudo apt-get install python

2. Eclipse

Eclipse is available from the Ubuntu Software Center, I usually install it from there that. Another option is to install it manually, which I never tried myself.
$ sudo apt-get install eclipse sun-java6-jdk $ sudo udate-java-alternatives -s java-6-sun

3. Pydev

  1. Run Eclipse
  2. Help -> Install New Software
  3. Type in "Work with": http://pydev.org/updates, name should be Python
  4. Select Pydev from the list of available options, then click Next
  5. Select the Python module that needs to be installed, click Next
  6. Let the downloading finish, then restart Eclipse
