Revision 1.8 - (hide annotations)
Sat Mar 25 22:29:12 2006 UTC (8 years ago) by crhodes
Branch: MAIN
CVS Tags: works-with-0_9_3
Changes since 1.7: +6 -14 lines
Modify gui.lisp to use frame arguments where applicable, as redisplay
methods need not be run in the application thread.

Document the need for external flexichain and esa checkouts, and remove
esa.lisp.
1 afuchs 1.6 *Note*: Climacs depends on McCLIM, a graphic toolkit for Common Lisp
2     (http://www.cliki.net/McCLIM) and CLX, a low level, Xlib-like library
3     on top of which McCLIM is built (http://www.cliki.net/CLX). Make sure
4     these are properly installed on your system before attempting to install
5     Climacs.
6    
7 strandh 1.2 Install instructions for Climacs. We assume that if you have gotten
8     this far, it means that you have either extracted a tar file with
9     everything in it, or checked out the files from some CVS repository.
10    
11 crhodes 1.8 0. You need to check out the flexichain and esa projects from
12     common-lisp.net. If you are not a member of those projects, here is
13     how you do it:
14 strandh 1.2
15 crhodes 1.8 cvs -z3 -d :pserver:anonymous:anonymous@common-lisp.net:/project/flexichain/cvsroot co flexichain
16     cvs -z3 -d :pserver:anonymous:anonymous@common-lisp.net:/project/climacs/cvsroot co esa
17 strandh 1.2
18 crhodes 1.8 Ensure that asdf can find the .asd files for these projects.
19 strandh 1.2
20 strandh 1.1 1. Start Lisp either from the shell or from Emacs
21    
22     2. (load "climacs.asd")
23    
24     This command will load the system definition file containing system
25     definitions both for ASDF and for MK:DEFSYSTEM.
26    
27     3. (asdf:operate 'asdf:load-op :climacs)
28    
29     This command will compile and load the source files in the right
30     order.
31    
32     4. (climacs-gui::climacs)
33    
34     Start the Climacs editor.
35    
36 rstrandh 1.4 Finally, please notice that as we develop Climacs, we occasionally
37     find bugs in McCLIM, or ask for functionality of McCLIM that can be
38     useful to us.
39    
40 afuchs 1.5 For that reason, Climacs often depends on very fresh CVS versions of
41 rstrandh 1.4 McCLIM. If you discover a bug, please try to install a new version of
42 abakic 1.7 McCLIM before looking too hard for any other reasons.
