Installation Procedure
======================

The easiest way to install aeditor and its dependencies is
through rpa-base, the port/pkg manager of the Ruby Production Archive.

 1) Installing Fox Toolkit 1.0.X

    (WARNING)
    DON'T INSTALL FOX 1.2.X !

    On Gentoo, you can find it under /usr/portage/x11-libs/fox
    In Debian, you'll need to:
    root$  apt-get install libfox1.0-dev

    FOX may be elsewhere on other platforms; you might be able to
    find it in your system's package manager.


 2) Installing RPA

    download and install RPA:
      http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=265&release_id=701
   
    after installation, be sure to update rpa-base:
    root$  rpa update
    root$  rpa install rpa-base


 3) Installing AEditor

    root$  rpa install aeditor


AEditor is now installed, and you may start it by typing:

  prompt$  aeditor



Installing the Dotfile
======================

The syntax coloring rules are described in the dotfile; if it's missing,
no syntax coloring will take place.

You will need to fetch this file:
http://rubyforge.org/cgi-bin/viewcv...=aeditor&content-type=text/vnd.viewcvs-markup
and place it in $HOME/.aeditor .

I got some problems here after installing aeditor 1.5.

config,setup and installing were clean but right after start of
eaditor I got:

[aeditor-1.5/] :aeditor
did not found a configuration file
spawning editor in window mode.
/usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/aeditor/viewfox.rb:286:in `initialize':
uninitialized constant EditorWidget::FXMenubar (NameError) from [snip backtrace]

I _thought_ I have installed everything needed, but...

Hmm.. I suspect you maybe have a different version of fox.. did you install
Fox 1.2.x ?

AEditor 1.5 doesn't work with the Fox 1.2.x (but its on my todo).

Please chect the version numbers of aeditors dependencies.

bash-2.05b$ aeditor -v
versions:
editor "1.5"
fox toolkit "1.0.43"
fxruby "1.0.25"
iterator "0.8"
ruby "1.8.1"

other info:
platform "i386-linux-gnu"
bash-2.05b$


Thanks for the report.

That most likely is a FOX 1.2.x library, when I was
hacking at the code to work nice with FOX 1.0.x, that
was the error I did get. Something is wrong with
FXMenuBar :)

Simon, I'm only a little bit visually impaired, but is there some reason
(on WinXP) your colors are all near-grey on black?

Hi Phlip,

no colors.. hmm.. syntax coloring is only enabled through the
configuration file (.aeditor); if its missing then no colors.
Thats usually the reason.. (it has happened quite a few times ;-)

If you are on windoes it may be necessary to set the HOME variable.
for instance

set HOME=c:\


Please tell me if this helps.. and thanks for your interest in AEditor.

Dunnit. I'm not talking about installing the highlighting. I'm talking about
after it works. All the colors are dark, and the background black.

Very odd.. hmm

Can you change to 'turbo' theme via the View pulldown menu?

Can you mail me a screenshot?

Okay. Turbo and Gvim themes don't suck.

Great.. im happy it works.. admitted the default theme sux..
Its just me when I make changes to the syntax coloring code.. then
I make changes to the default theme.. this way it has become ugly.
Maybe I should find a nice default theme?

If you manage to make a nice theme which you think are
suitable.. then please mail me ;-)


ok.. thanks

When I use View->Customize Theme, all the colors are drab and dark.

It's like you were CGA with the bright bit always off. (There I go showing
my age again...)

Hmm.. can you upload another screenshot where you capture
both the Customize Theme dialogbox and the mainwindow at the same time.
This sounds also odd.. The Customize Theme is suppose to reflect
the currently chosen theme. Dark colors shouldn't be there.

Show me the screenshot.. and I see what I can do ;-)

Thanks for your report.


BTW: tonight I have just released AEditor-1.6.. further details are here:
