I cna't do this step form the ros ide tutorial:

In Eclipse, right click the project, click properties -> C/C++ general -> Preprocessor Include Paths, Macros etc. Click the tab "Providers" and check the box next to "CDT GCC Built-in Compiler Settings [ Shared ]".

their is no Preprocessor inc..

ok, but what about laumching ros lunch files from eclipse? is their any way to do that? it seems to me that ecliple is little complicated to use as ros ide for all the ros features.

I think you just need to open the roslaunch file in Eclipse and then run it from there.
