This post is dedicated to my dear juniors.
Today i linked Eclipse on Linux with Pydev (Python Development Plugin). A program in python can be written in even a notepad, but investing time in setting up a proper IDE is fruitfull.

Follow following steps to setup python on your Eclipse IDE

The PyDev Ubuntu setup requires some configuration in Eclipse. Installing PyDev on Ubuntu is similar to the installation on Windows or Macintosh.

1. Run Eclipse and then go to Help | Software Updates | Find and Install…

2. In the Feature Updates window, select Search for new features to install and click Next.

3. In the Install window, select New Remote Site.

4. In the New Update Site window, specify the following:

Name: PyDev

The old URL was

5. In the Search Results window, select both PyDev Extensions and click Next.

6. In the Feature License window, agree to the license agreement and click Next.

7. Configure the Python interpreter by going to Window | Preferences | Pydev | Interpreter – Python.

8. In the Python interpreters section, click New.

9. Locate your Python interpreter (e.g., /usr/bin/python).

10. When prompted, select your System PYTHONPATH. You can just leave the default checkboxes selected and click OK.

Now I assume the reader already has python OpenCV installed
SO follow these two steps now :
Add /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages to the System Libs
Add cv to the Forced builtins
All set now

Happy Image processing !
