I'm fairly certain the OP is already doing that...

As far as I know (I haven't used pydev in awhile) you need a launch  
configuration for each script.  I do know you can run a script easily and  
have the launch created for you just by right-clicking the file and saying  
Run As > Python (I think).  Here is what the FAQ says:

How do I run a module from within eclipse using PyDev (either Python or  

To do that, the easiest way is going to the Run menu (Run->Run As->Python  
or Jython). If it is not available in your current eclipse perspective,  
you can enable it by going to window->customize perspective->commands and  
checking the "Lauch" item (in this way, you can go only with the keyboard).

Another way to run a module is right clicking the module in the navigator  
and choosing python->run (when a .py file is selected).
