I am new to LDT ( using version 0.9) under Debian Linux and I like it so far.
I can run Lua files within the LDT and it shows the output in the console.

However, if I use external libraries, errors will appear when trying to run them.

For example I tried to use the LOOP library :

local oo = require "loop.base"

I installed LOOP via LuaRocks and I can run classes based on LOOP without any problems on the Linux Shell.

However, running it in Linux will cause the following error message :


Exception in thread "main" com.naef.jnlua.LuaRuntimeException: /home/dev/lua/src/main.lua:1: module 'loop.base' not found:
no field package.preload['loop.base']
no file '/home/dev/lua/src/loop/base.lua'
no file '/home/dev/lua/src/loop/base/init.lua'
no file '/home/dev/lua/src/loop/base.luac'
no file '/home/dev/lua/src/loop/base/init.luac'

no file '/usr/lib/lua/5.1/'
no file '/usr/local/lib/lua/5.1/'
at com.naef.jnlua.LuaState.lua_pcall(Native Method)

How can I fix it so that I can use LDT for LOOP-based lua files, too.

It sounds like there is a difference between the $LUA_PATH available from your terminal and the one available from where you run Koneki LDT.
Do you modify your $LUA_PATH in your .bashrc?
You can check this easily by running the following from shell and from a Koneki LDT project.
print( package.path )

If outputs differ, Koneki LDT and shell do not use same $LUA_PATH.
I think you might either uniform your $LUA_PATH or use the Lua interpreter of your system.
