Finally found it!

The answer is here: http://www.mail-archive.com/pydev-users@lists.sourceforge.net/msg04234.html

In short, shortcuts are not set for all perspectives of eclipse. Whilst in the pydev perspective, go to Window > Customize perspective > Command Groups Availability > Check breakpoints.

That's it!

I was using the pydev perspective (which is what it switches to when you first create a pydev project) however, breakpoint shortcuts are only available in the debug perspective by default so you need to turn the shortcut on... wow that was so NOT obvious!

score:2

On recent pydev versions:

Go to Window > Perspective > customize perspective... And in tab "Action Set Availability", check "Breakpoints"

score:3

Ctrl + Shift + B works for me and I am using pydev 1.6.1 with eclipse 3.6.

Perhaps, you have a conflict with another program? Try change it under menu Window > Preference > General > Keys > Toggle Breakpoint to another keyboard shortcut.

score:6

Ctrl + Shift + B

If this refuses to work, have a look at Window > Preferences > General > Keys and look for overlayed keys which may shadow this shortcut.
