Tried to install it manually (from website; eric7): did not work at all. Tried to install it with "Software Manager": same, not working. (Linux Mint 21.1)

This version is old. It's worth it to get eric7 (22.9) from the website: you can install via pip using your terminal.

I tried to install eric on Mint Mate 21. I ended up going to and doing the linux install via terminal using the instructions on the webpage. Doing that worked.

Linux Mint 19.3: Sofortiger Absturz nach dem Starten. Beim Ausführen im Terminal wird auf eine Website verwiesen, die nicht existiert. Leider totale Verarsche und nicht weiterzuempfehlen. Schade, ich hätte die Anwendung gerne mal ausprobiert.

Excellent IDE - worth upgrading to version 5! The interface is both intuitive and fast. I had one issue where a plugin failed and it sent the developers an email. Within 48 hours I received an email back that a patch had been applied.
