I'm trying to add the CDT to an existing Eclipse JDT installation.
I'm following the process below:
- Open Eclipse
- Help->Install New Software
- I click the Add button
- I enter CDT as name and the link
http://download.eclipse.org/tools/cdt/releases/junoas location for the repositories. (btw the same error occurs if I try adding a local archive after downloading it from the eclipse site – CDT master)
- I select both CDT MAIN and CDT OPTIONAL features with a check-box to be installed and press next
In the next window I'm then prompted with the following error:
Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could
not be found. Software being installed: C/C++ Remote Launch
184.108.40.206302132326 (org.eclipse.cdt.launch.remote.feature.group 220.127.116.11302132326) Missing requirement: C/C++ Remote Debug Launcher 18.104.22.168302132326 (org.eclipse.cdt.launch.remote 22.214.171.124302132326) requires 'bundle org.eclipse.rse.ui [3.0.0,4.0.0)' but it could not be
found Cannot satisfy dependency:
From: C/C++ Remote Launch 126.96.36.199302132326 (org.eclipse.cdt.launch.remote.feature.group 188.8.131.52302132326)
To: org.eclipse.cdt.launch.remote [184.108.40.206302132326]
The weird thing is that if I just select the CDT MAIN features installation in the previous screen all goes fine and I am asked to accept the terms of license before installation actually takes place.
So I have 2 questions:
- Any idea of what could solve the problem?
- Do you believe it's important to install the CDT OPTIONAL features for standard programming and debugging?
to solve the problem of installing eclipse with cdt c/c++ plugins, simply do the following at terminal:
after a successful install, do the following at terminal; pls back-up workspace:
