I am using Eclipse 3.5.2. I want to install the CDT plugin so that I can compile C/C++ programs.

I attempted to install the CDT plugin and it failed, given the following error message:

Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found.
  Software being installed: C/C++ GCC Cross Compiler Support (
  Missing requirement: C/C++ Managed Builder UI (org.eclipse.cdt.managedbuilder.ui requires 'bundle org.eclipse.ui.console [3.5.100,4.0.0)' but it could not be found
  Cannot satisfy dependency:
    From: CDT GCC Cross Compiler Support (
    To: bundle org.eclipse.cdt.managedbuilder.ui 8.1.0
  Cannot satisfy dependency:
    From: C/C++ GCC Cross Compiler Support (
    To: []

Has anyone managed to install/use the CDT plugin with Eclipse v 3.5.2 ?

Do you have GCC installed? If I remember correctly CDT does not include the compiler. You need to find a C compiler and install it before installing CDT.

Yes, I have gcc devtools installed. Most of my programming is C/C++. – Homunculus Reticulli Jul 4 '12 at 15:31
