=== Installation ===
+
Leksah Git repositories:
+
* https://github.com/leksah/leksah
* First look to the general information in the Manual
+
* https://github.com/leksah/leksah-server
 
* When you get the following error:
 
<code>src/IDE/Completion.hs:87:26:
 
Not in scope: `sourceLanguageManagerGuessLanguage'</code>
 
 
you have to install gtksourceview2 in a version > 2.4.0
 
 
* When you get the following error:
 
<code>Linking dist/build/leksah/leksah ...
 
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -ledit
 
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status</code>
 
 
you have to install libedit development files.
 
 
* The package type-level considered toxic!
 
This package defines > 20000 newtypes for numbers and
 
wastes a lot of space for metadata. So consider to
 
unregister it, if you don't really need it.
 
 
 
 
=== Release notes ===
 
 
Moved to the [http://leksah.org/ Leksah] webside
 
 
=== Installation on Windows from scratch ===
 
 
In the future when Leksah reaches production quality I hope we can provide a Windows installer.
 
 
''This is what you can do to get leksah 0.4.3 running on Vista''
 
 
0. <tt>cabal-install</tt> was not working for me. Probably because currently there is no gtk2hs >= 0.10.0 on Hackage right now.
 
 
1. Install your GHC from http://www.haskell.org/ghc. Duh. Mine was GHC 6.10.1.
 
 
2. Install gtk2hs from http://www.haskell.org/gtk2hs/ or [http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=49207&package_id=42440 Sourceforge.net]. It was 0.10.0 when I checked.
 
 
3. Install Cygwin with the online installer from http://www.cygwin.com/
 
Select packages wget, curl and gcc-core in adition to the standard selection. I used the 1.7.0 version of Cygwin setup, but it is still beta.
 
 
4*. Download darcs from http://wiki.darcs.net/DarcsWiki/Binaries, unpack it in under Program Files and add the path to your environment variables. The file I downloaded was darcsdir-cygwin-2.2.0.tar.bz2.
 
 
5. Download the GHC sources from http://www.haskell.org/ghc. Open a Cygwin shell, make a directory Haskell, copy the source tarballs here and unpack them.
 
 
6*. Download the binary and utf-8 packages from [http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive/pkg-list.html Hackage] and copy them to the Haskell folder. Open a Cygwin shell in Administrator mode and unpack the tar files. Go to the directories and do <tt>runhaskell Setup configure</tt>, <tt>runhaskell Setup build</tt>, <tt>runhaskell Setup install</tt>.
 
 
7*. In the Haskell directory do a <tt>darcs get http://code.haskell.org/leksah</tt>. Go to the leksah directory and do a <tt>runhaskell Setup configure</tt>, <tt>runhaskell Setup build</tt>, <tt>runhaskell Setup install</tt>.
 
 
7a) Although I probably didn't get this, previously some gtk error message was resolved by editting C:/Program Files/Gtk2Hs/0.10.0/etc/gtk-2.0/gtkrc and change the theme name from MS-Windows to Raleigh: <tt>gtk-theme-name = "Raleigh"</tt>
 
 
8. You may wish to install a full Unicode monospace font if you want to use the source candy feature of leksah. e.g. [http://www.evertype.com/emono/ Everson Mono] or [http://dejavu-fonts.org/wiki/index.php?title=Download Deja Vu Sans Mono] (or perhaps the [http://www.gnu.org/software/freefont/ GNU FreeFont]s which are aesthetically pleasing to my eyes).
 
 
9. Start leksah and give your Haskell directory as source root. Select the right font from Help/Prefs.
 
 
10. Have fun with leksah, but remember it is a beta version!
 
 
NB* I actually experienced a bit of a problem here, darcs was taking too much time. While in Cygwin, I cabal-installed it! Voila! So the starred portions are actually unnecessary, I think.
 
 
=== Installation for Ubuntu ===
 
 
Hello, I've installed Leksah 0.4.4.1 today in Ubuntu 8.10. This
 
procedure is based on the one given in the manual, but uses GHC 6.10.2.
 
Hope it will be useful. (Maciej Noszczyński)
