Did you make sure to install the version of Eclipse for C/C++ development?

I believe, there are packages which only builds a library, no executables. If you are is on eclipse, after doing make eclipse-project, import it as a " existing project into workspace". You can find this option under 'General'. This always works for me.

Found the problem, there should be a cpp file with main function , and its "rosbuild_add_executable" in CMakeLists, in order to successfully import the project. Blank project cannot be imported.
