I am very new to Eclipse. I just downloaded for testing

Eclipse Standard/SDK
Version: Kepler Service Release 1
Build id: 20130919-0819

and

de.defmacro.dandelion.feature.sbcl.linux.x86_1.1.10.jar

which I managed to install in the new Eclipse IDE, but I cannot discern how to make it operational. How do I make a project in Eclipse that uses Dandelion? I haven't found a way to make that happen.

I also installed these two plug-ins for a comparison and they seem to work as far as I can tell with my minimal experience. I can't seem to find documentation on Dandelion or anything on the Internet that explains its usage.

C/C++ Development Tools 8.2.1.201309180223 org.eclipse.cdt.feature.group Eclipse CDT

C/C++ Development Tools SDK 8.2.1.201309180223 org.eclipse.cdt.sdk.feature.group Eclipse CDT

Also, I should mention that I'm using Linux Mint Nadia w/ KDE on a 64-bit platform.

Hi Paul,

from your description it sounds like you only installed the environment and not the core plugin. Can you make sure, that you also installed the de.defmacro.dandelion_1.2.2.jar file? The best way to install Dandelion is to use the Eclipse Update Manager under Help > Install New Software... and paste this URL into the 'Add Repository' dialog: http://dandelion-ecl.sourceforge.net/update/.

You should now be able to create a 'Lisp project' in the 'New Project' dialog.

After the installation you also have to make the Lisp binary executable. Go to the folder 'de.defmacro.dandelion.env.*/binary' in your 'plugins' directory and make the binary executable via 'chmod +x <name of the binary found there>'.

After that everything should work, tell me if not.

Thank you Michael,

I thought I had done as you recommended previously, so I tried to remove the Dandelion plugin and start over, but I couldn't find a way to do that, so I removed Eclipse entirely, re-installed Eclipse and then did as you recommended. That worked fine and I was able to create a Lisp project that compiled and ran.

By the way, I see where it is possible to use other Lisp environments and I currently use SBCL-1.1.12, which I upgrade approximately monthly, so would like to know the steps required to upgrade the Lisp environment for Dandelion so I can stay current.
