I've always used Eclipse for Java development. However recently, I've wanted to add other language functionality to my favorite IDE. I got it to work with python and no I need C/C++.

A search on the marketplace yeilded nothing for CDT and I can't seem to find it. Is it a plugin? I'm confused as to how to make it work with my current IDE.

I stopped using it when I moved to NetBeans for PHP development. I do remember that some time around Ubunto 10.10 it was no longer in the repository :-( However, you can download it from but that looks like a complete install of Eclipse, not just a plugin. Looks like you are going to have to do a bit of digging around. Maybe try asking on their forum? – Mawg Jun 24 '11 at 2:39

When in Eclipse, click Help -> Install New Software... Select your update site in the "Work with" box. This is most likely Helios. If it does not exist, type this in it (or another version) and click Add. Once the list is fully loaded, open "Programming Languages" and install the "C/C++ Development Tools".
