I just set up Eclipse 4.2.1 and PDT 3.1.1 on Ubuntu 12.0.4 this week and all is working well until I tried to configure debugging via xdebug.

If i go to "Window"->"Preferences" then uncollapse the PHP section I do not see a Debug section. Also, if i go look at my available perspectives I do not see PHP Debug.

I attached images showing my installed software, my list of available perspectives, and the PHP section of the list of Preferences.

Any idea why i'm not see the PHP Debug Prefrences or Perspectives?

'PHP Debug' perspective had been removed on PDT 3.0. PDT uses 'Debug' perspective now. So it is not a problem.
Missing 'Debug' in Preferences is a problem indeed, it indicates that php debug plugin is not loaded. Are there something errors in {workspace}/.metadata/.log ?
(I have no idea though)

Good to know.

Is there a specific name for this php debug plugin? Should it come bundled with PDT or does it need to be installed on its own?

I don't even see a .log file/directory in the {workspace}/.metadata, only .mylyn and .plugins directories.

This may not be related at all, but when i was configuring Subclipse, i had troubles getting my JavaHL to load so i ended up using SVNKit (Pure Java) instead. Could my JavaHL issues be related to this?

org.eclipse.php.debug.core_3.1.1.201209101312.jar
org.eclipse.php.debug.daemon_3.1.1.201209101312.jar
org.eclipse.php.debug.ui_3.1.1.201209101312.jar
these are included in PDT, so no need to install separately.
If any of these files is lost(or failed in startup), you'll lose all php debugging feature. It is unlikely...

> I don't even see a .log file/directory in the {workspace}/.metadata, only .mylyn and .plugins directories.
{workspace}/.metadata/.log file must exist because eclipse is logging a lot of warnings such as "Keybinding conflicts occurred" even in the normal installation...
Window>Show View>Other>General>Error Log has no entries as well?

No, it has no relation.

Thanks for staying with me.

I just confirmed that I do have all the plug-ins you named at /opt/eclipse/plugins.

I just checked the error log via eclipse and I have attached a screenshot of all the errors over the last couple days. I did a restart today around noon so i assume any startup errors would be included. Doesn't seem like anything related to php debug.

umm...
If it is possible, try
a) Start eclipse with -clean option.(e.g. open terminal, type "/opt/eclipse/eclipse -clean")
or
b) Install eclipse as a new installation.(e.g. extract eclipse-SDK-4.2.1-linux-gtk.tar.gz to home directory, start new eclipse and create new workspace, and then install pdt)

Tried the -clean option and no success

I'll try the reinstall soon, i'm assuming its possible to have two different installations of eclipse installed at the same time.

Thanks again for your help.
