There is something wrong with this plugin for EasyEclipse 1.2.2. When I try to install another plugin, I get this error:

‘The current configuration contains errors and this operation can have unpredictable results.
Eclipse Mylar (2.0.0.M3) requires plug-in “org.eclipse.pde.ui”.’

This happened when I tried to install Abator For Eclise ( and EclipseWiki (

I had to disable Mylar in order to be able to install the other plugins.

Yes this is a known issue. I have pending bugs @ eclipse on the topic. They should be corrected n future versions.
In the meantime you could try to also install PDE on top of your install.
BTW, if you have a good experience with Abatis and Eclipsewiki, please enter a feature request so we could ship them in the future.
