I am a long term Eclipse user, but had missed out on Mylyn. When I
installed Europa I was looking through the new goodies and found Mylyn
and thought it looked interesting.

We use Trac and Subversion (with Subclipse). I have the connector
to the trac server working, and subclipse works, but I am having a
problem understanding what I have to do to get changesets working. If
it matters I am running under Linux (KDE Debian-sid) with Sun Java 6.

I found the Mylyn_User_Guide, and got to the bit about changesets.

Well the first bit I found was under Eclipse Settings, Team, first bullet.
If I go into the syncronize view I do not see toolbar button Show Change
Sets (what is it supposed to look like?).

Then under submitting contexts it says to Attach the context, which I did
but nothing changed.

As I am running SVN I understand under the Team Support section that
Subclipse only supports standard mode. But I do not understand the
significance of this.

Also I am unclear about how I put something into a changeset, and how
I then check in the whole lot at once.

I thought that Mylyn just noticed that I was working on a task, watched
that I was doing and noticed that I had changed some local files, and then
when I checked them in (maybe I checked in the wrong thing) would submit
the whole changeset.

I guess I missed something.

Other than that, all you have to do is click the Changeset icon in the
Synchronize view so that it is showing change sets.

Yes I have those installed, my problem is knowing what this Changeset icon
is and where to find it. I also think that I am possible not following
the correct workflow so that Mylyn knows that I am starting to work on
a new task. In my simply minded way I just closed all open editors, opened
the task object, opened the ticket and using the Package Explorer started
opening source files. I made some changes and normally I would just
check them back into SVN in the normal way one at a time. I have
Package Explorer set up to show the active files only, and if I do
a Team -> Commit from there I get a message box saying it is doing something
with the ticket, but then when the SVN Commit dialog opens the commit
message has not been filled in as it seemed to be on the video I watched.

Is the "Automatically create and manage with task content" checkbox ticked
and do you have a commit comment template in the
Window->Preferences->Mylyn->Team tab?

You can check a tasks context in flight if you open it up and go to the
context tab (the tab is on the bottom of the pane). If there is a context
then there is probably a change set - as long as your project is actually
under source control (and Sunclipse knows about it of course).

The change set icon looks like a little document with a Mylyn "lambda" icon
over it. In my case it show up on the far right of the Synchronize tab
toolbar, next to the red double arrow for "conflicts mode".

Maybe you miss to "activate" the task (right click on a task in the task
view => "Activate")?
