Hello,

I am new to this & followed the instructions here http://sourceforge.net/p/lejos/wiki/Ins ... %20plugin/ and here http://sourceforge.net/p/lejos/wiki/Win ... tallation/.

I installed eclipse, with the leJOS plugin but am a bit confused about the leJOS EV3 software download for Mac.

What download and I supposed to use? Am I supposed to download it to my computer or my SD card? What am I supposed to link as EV3_Home in the Eclipse plugin?

Thank you in advance for your help.

God Bless,
Karen Drummond

You need to follow the instructions for a Mac/Linux:
https://sourceforge.net/p/lejos/wiki/In ... g%20leJOS/
Not the one for windows.

I have seen this page but it does not really answer my questions - particularly the last two.

Whenever, I download the file I get a whole heap of useless seeming files. This is why I am confused.

The steps are pretty simple....
1. Download the install file from here:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/lejos/ ... .8.1-beta/
You just need the file: leJOS_EV3_0.8.1-beta.tar.gz
2. Unpack it into a directory of your choice.
3. Point the eclipse plugin EV3_HOME at the directory you chose to unpack the files to.
4. Inside the above directory you will find a file called lejosimage.zip, this is the file that you need to unzip onto the Fat32 SD card. Please see the wiki for more details, you will also need to download the Oracle JRE for the EV3 and copy this to the SD card, again see the Wiki.

If you are still having problems, please tell us exactly what it is you have done, and what problems you are having.
