Hello,
I'm a relatively inexperienced user and I'm having trouble creating Fortran projects in Eclipse under Linux. I installed the latest version and had no problem running it.

However, whenever I try creating a new executable Fortran project, the toolchain selection box is empty.

I tried to import an existing project, and by opening the "properties" menu I was able to set GCC Fortran as the current toolchain. I tried to compile and everything went smoothly. So I know I have what I need on my system, I just can't get GCC to show/be recognized under the project creation menu.

I've spent several hours googling for a solution, to no avail. Any tip would be extremely helpful.

Thanks a lot in advance.

I had the same problem but I think I found the work around. When you create a Fortran project, do not use anything under "Executable". You should use one under "Static Library". When you expand the Static Library, you will see something like

Executable (GNU gfortran on Linux/*nix)

Try this and it will use the GNU gfortran toolchain. I was able to compile my fortran codes without any trouble.

I am using Eclipse Juno under Fedora17 32bit, FYI.

If you need further information, this might help.

Yes, that's it! I overlooked the "Executable (GNU gfortran on Lunux/*nix)" option because of its positioning.

I thought it was a child of the "Static Library" folder, but it's actually an independent option. It's just positioned below "Static Library" for some reason, I didn't have to expand "Static Library". I was used to Eclipse on Mac OS, where the menu was arranged differently, and got confused.

Thanks
