Kepler is not supported.

You should not have installed Avr eclipse plugin. It is confusing and you need to configure both to get it to work.
You probably used the avr upload button when uploading. The other button could have worked. You can read more on he relation between the 2 here http://www.eclipse.baeyens.it/Arduino%20eclipse%20plugin%20FAQ.html#WINAVR

Today I should advice to install Juno CDT and V2 of the plugin. This version has a Arduino menu and uses the Arduino buttons. It doesn't include winavr nor depends on it.

Best regards

Well now I have installed
Eclipse Juno Service Release 2  (1.5.2.20130211-1820)
Arduino eclipse extensions (2.1.0.4)
After restarting Eclipse I got the following message
Problem occurred
'Discover compiler built in language settings' has encountered a problem.
Problem running CDT scanner Discovery provider it.baeyens.arduino.languageSettingsprovider
I can't upload any sketch. I see that under Windows/Preferences I only see one item for Arduino and none for paths or avrdude as in the installation instructions. What have I missed now ?



Not sure which installation instructions you are referring to. There is nothing on arv dude in my instructions http://www.eclipse.baeyens.it/Install.html There shoiuld only be Arduino in the preferences.
Version 2 needs Arduino IDE 1.5.2 beta (all other versions will not work)
Best regards

I'm referring to the instructions in exactly the same  url you posted now. At the bottom of that webpage we see the window preferences and a heading arduino. Under that heading are three items,
Arduino
AVRDude
paths
I only have
Arduino
     arduino
On arduino homepage the only  beta  I find for download is 1.5.4r2. Is later than 1.5.4.2 ok ?


The images indeed contain avrdude but there are no instruction to do any settings there.
Avrdude is there because the images are from V1. In V2 Avrdude is no longer there.
You can find 1.5.2 here http://arduino.cc/en/Main/OldSoftwareReleases
Do not PM me a question unless you are prepared to pay for consultancy.

Does this mean that version 1.5.2 is necessary and later versions won't work ? Maybe not a big deal now but later when 1.5.2 becomes obsolete I see a potential problem here.

It means that Arduino IDE has changed between 1.5.2 beta and 1.5.3 beta in such a way that it becomes incompatible and I haven't cached up yet.
Note that Arduino 1.5.X are at this time still all beta versions.

This is one known incompatibility http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=165827.0

Sublime Text with the Stino plug in. I'm pretty new to it but it's amazing so far. https://github.com/Robot-Will/Stino

Thanks, but no-thanks. SublimeText costs money - $70. That would buy 2 or 3 Arduinos and a lot of Atmega 328 chips.

I'm with you on how bad the Arduino IDE is.  That's why I re-wrote it from (mainly) the ground up.

http://www.uecide.org

It's still in the same "style" as the original IDE, but it works much better, has a better styled interface, and can do oh so much more.

And if you like writing in Java, you can write your own plugins to extend it even more.

Riva

Have you tried CodeBlocks. I have tinkered with it and it will probably do most all the things you need.

jaques

This NetBeans plugin is working very well for my projects: http://plugins.netbeans.org/plugin/46054/arduino

For the plugin work properly, the original IDE must placed in a path without spaces, like c:\arduino-1.0.5.

the terrible standard Arduino IDE

In all cases I have been unable to make [other IDEs] work as intended


Pardon me while I chuckle at the juxtaposition of these two statements.  :-)

The help wrt Eclipse was also amusing.

There are supposed to be a bunch of real IDEs that now support Arduino.  But all of them are going to be "difficult" to set up, compared to the Arduino IDE itself.   Pick one, start (or find) a thread about the problems that you are having with it, and figure out how to resolve them.  the conversation will aid others who try after you...

This is great advice for people who are more interested in IDEs than in writing Arduino code.

People who want to write Arduino code just get on with it (which, I think, is where you are coming from).

Well now I have 1.5.2 beta. And I still get problems. Made a simple arduino sketch that prints a message, when compiling I get two messages.
First there are no rules to make the target
Second error messages that Serial and print could not be resolved

I'm searching for the a better (the best) IDE for Arduino just because I want to write code for Arduino.

I have downloaded and installed Netbeans and the arduino plugin. But more seems to be needed before it works.

slightly off topic, but related.

my daughter has just found the perfect way of getting rid of the arduino ide on my test machine,
   she found the FDISK command equivalent in the windows command structure.

Ah well,

Best way of cleaning up the MS-Win virus as well.

Now you can get on with installing a real operating system.
