How to add Python 3.1 interpreter to Aptana / Eclipse Pydev ptython interpreter list

Recently I though of starting out with Python.. The first thing I tried was to get the Python3.1 interpreter to be added to my python interpreters list in the PyDev section of my Aptana Studio 3. I could not find how to add it as I was unable to search for it.

So here I am logging it so that some one who wants to do the same can save th 10 odd minutes that I wasted while trying to figure out how to add the desired interpreter.

Go to :

Window > Preferences > PyDev > Interpreter-Python

Next click on the New button and browse to /usr/bin

Select the python3.1 file and click ok.

That adds the python interpreter to your list…
