I know there are eric deb packages out there that pull everything down
in one fell swoop, so maybe it's time to get apt/yumming or whatever fc
calls it :-)

apt-get install eric

Personally I only discovered that as a matter of curiosity when I saw
eric in a repository and tried it to see the difference - having
installed it (and every dependency) from tarballs previously, used it
for a while, and sadly removed it. It's clearly an excellent piece of
software, but I just had something else that did each task I wanted -
usually better.

Besides which, once you've got your IDE/debugger sorted out, if you're
working in the python/Qt that eric offers, even the GUI form design for
python/Qt can be done in a *much* better, easier way using plain old
Qt-designer, then piping the .ui files it creates through pyuic.
