Well, I've attempted to use it. I'm still trying to set it up so I can compile-run-debug D code. Do you have a sample set up that I can look at?

attempted? hmmm... that doesn't sound good...
you shouldn't be strugling with it
(every thing seems very natural to me...)
leds was suppose to be simple to use :(

wasn't the user manual helpfull? http://leds.sourceforge.net/userManualProj.html

but you should be able to create a new project from the
project view "new" icon or project menu/new.
you just need to:
- enter the project name and directory on the basic,
- enter dmd and phobos location on the build,
- and enter the target definitions
http://leds.sourceforge.net/projTarget.html

don't forget the srcdirs or your project will be empty as far as
the targets are concern (I'll change to empty == all).
And after changing the targets you always need to restart,
is very fast and the internal states are saved so you don't even
notice it;)
I agree that the target definition UI is kind of uggly but
once you done it once...

now, about the debug - it's not supported.
I use DDD with gdb but cannot see the D sources (so it's usefull
only to debug when I interface with C on DUI)

Maybe I could ship a leds project definition with the source... Maybe all the definitions for DUI and all the tests.

It would be a question of pointing to the right directories.
A dialog could be popup up when a project doesn't point
to a valid directory. That would be costly in terms of size
or startup time. I'll probably do it.

What I'm trying to do is to create a console project to run
a sample wc example from D documentation.
here the output message.

*** Executing: cd /home/vphom/D/Test/src ; make -f Makefile.wordc all clean
make: Makefile.wordc: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `Makefile.wordc'.  Stop.

>wasn't the user manual helpfull? http://leds.sourceforge.net/userManualProj.html
not much, unfortunately.

Done that, by the way where is my project files saved to?
How can I reopen myproject?
There's no menu to open my previous project.

>don't forget the srcdirs or your project will be empty as far as
On the project->properties->Targets->srcdirs textbox when I enter the location of source dir it was clear up after I click ok and then reopen it. So I don't know if the source dir is being used.

Doesn't D have its own debugger?

Well I think you could fill-in with all the default value, so to get the user up and runing. Then he or she could customized to whatever setting they needed much like kdevelop does.

that's a good idea.

ah! kdevelop!
I had answer all your questions step by step then I got
to that line and decided to try kdevelop!

It crashed my X server and I lost then entire post... :)

I'll do a step by step stetup of a simple project and repost it.

I just uploaded it to the leds pages
I assure you it has the same quality as the other user manual pages :(

When I exist and restart the project is not there. And I don't know how to get it back. May be my installation is screw up some how.

check if you have the leds home direcories:
~/.leds
~/.leds_data
~/.leds_data/projects

the project file *.lpj should be in ~/leds_data/projects

leds saves the window size and position and opened files between runs. does it do that on your system? That is on the save on openedFiles.leds and preferences.leds

to create those instructions I run a new install of leds changing the home parameters:

leds --home ~/.ledsDemo --data ~/.ledsDemo_data

leds created the following dir tree:

.ledsDemo
|-- openedFiles.leds
`-- preferences.leds
.ledsDemo_data
`-- projects
    `-- wc.lpj

except wc.lpj that leds created only when the wc project
was created.
(openedFiles.leds and preferences.leds are also
not created when leds first start up)
Other user(s) reported success creating leds projects.

!!!!!!!!! wait I just found a bug !!!!!!!!! :

if the home directory and the data directory are the some the projects subdirectory doesn't get created!!?

did you do that? force home and data to be the same directory? for example

leds --home .leds1 --data .leds1 <<-- will fail to create projects subdir

with no projects subdir the project doesn't get saved!
