Eclipse w/ PyDev is broken


I tried installing eclipse with pydev and have managed to break it in trying to get it to work. The install for eclipse was easy (running linux mint 17.3 so installed through apt). Then I tried to follow the directions on pydev.org (one page said it needs java7 and one said java8, both part of pydev.org), which seemed like that would be easy as well since eclipse has an option for installing it directly through eclipse. However, I never seemed to be installed even though it said it was and all I could find on pydev.org was to make sure the right version of java was installed, but as pointed out above which version was the right one depended on where I looked on the site. So I tried to unistall pydev, again just doing this through eclipse, and when I restarted eclipse I get "JVM terminated. Exit Code=1". I have tried then uninstalling eclipse through apt, including purging it and deleting the "workspace" folder and .eclipse folder, and reinstalling but I still get the same error. How do I fix this? Or if there is another python3.4 IDE that someone can recommend that will be easier to get set up that would work too.

Maybe looking at Java console can help?

I would look at the Java console. What it logs when starting Eclipse might lead to a fix. Otherwise, re-installing Java might help. I would start with version 7 first. Regarding another IDE you could try the NetBeans plugin available at http://wiki.netbeans.org/Python.

I skipped looking at the java console, but uninstalled java7 and installed java8 in trying netbeans 8.1 and that seemed to fix eclipse (it at least starts up now that I reinstalled it). But Netbeans was easier to set up for use with python, so I'll just stick with that. It never came up when I was searching for python IDE's.

Thank you
