No, there is no Python prompt in the shell window. Today I tried
recompiling PyQt and reinstalled eric3, but it didn't help. Also,
there are absolutely no error messages when I start eric3 from a
terminal. I saw that the eric3 homepage says it requires PyQt v3.6 but
I think this has to be a mistake, the latest version seems to be 3.17,
which I have installed. Could the fact that I'm running eric3 on 64
bit system (AMD64) be causing problems? However, all libraries etc.
are compiled for 64 bit, so it shouldn't be a problem.. I hope.
