I can't run the debugger

I have a similar problem to skickahitnu,
but I have different system (Linux).
I got to the point where I can run perl withing the IDE but when I try to
debug I get this kind of message:

Compilation failed in require.
	main::BEGIN() called at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.6/perl5db.pl line 0
	eval {...} called at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.6/perl5db.pl line 0

Anybody know what I'm doing wrong?
Should I be calling perl with the -d option when I'm debugging? Or are there
other options I need to put for the EPIC debugger to work?

Thanks for any pointers.

When I reached this point, I found the only solution was making sure all
the parts were compatible, eclipse and plugin and padwalker.
On windows, at least, I needed to get padwalker from the epic site instead
of cpan. Also, even after all the hastles to finally get debugging happening
I found I was getting a spurious error message for each debug 'step'. I
can't believe that epic is really stable enought to be more than experimental
at this point.
