Written for Sikuli by RaiMan on 2013-10-31

There is a new revised download package Sikuli-1.0.1-Supplemental-LinuxVisionProxy, that is tested on Ubuntu 12+ and should work on more Linux systems out of the box than before. MANDATORY: Looking at the README.txt or faq 2447.

1.0.1 ready - one Setup for all Systems

Written for Sikuli by RaiMan on 2013-08-12

Read for IDE:

Read for Script:

The setup steps on all systems:
1. download sikuli-setup.jar to a user writeable folder
(do not use Program / Application folders)

2. double click sikuli-setup.jar
(or get it running from command line using
java -jar sikuli-setup.jar)

3. make your choices and run setup
(read carefully all infos available)

4. hope that all works without errors
(if you get problems, you might send me
your SetUp log file or post it here)

Use the stuff, if all worked well!

... and again: to really have fun:
read the latest release info at the above links.

Windows 64Bit using Java 32Bit

Written for Sikuli by RaiMan on 2013-05-22

If you currently want to use a Java 32-Bit version with Sikuli on Windows 64-Bit, you have to use the Sikuli Win32 package. I will find a solution for the service update in July.

NASTY problem - lost images in Untitled solved

Written for Sikuli by RaiMan on 2013-05-22

Images captured in the IDE in an "Untitled" tab are not permanently saved in any case, when using SaveAs (either from the file menu or with autosave at run or quit). After restarting the IDE, you will notice, that the images are no longer available.
All images captured after having saved the script the first time are preserved.
Workaround: before starting to capture images in an "Untitled" tab, save the script first.

The problem is solved in sikuli-ide.jar from the Supplemental stuff.

Updated on 2013-05-23.

Enjoy and come back with your ideas on new features.

Changes/Fixes in current IDE

 - eliminated menus/features: export, extensions (might come back later), unit test

-- revised the Preview window (only one at a time, apply button added to do more than one change, ...)
 - added additional window for more options temporarilly (prefs have to be revised generally)
 - new options: no HTML creation, do not delete unused images, image path for IDE to store images
 - added: warning to restart IDE after having changed prefs

-- better display of errors in message area

-- is available on Jython level (see below)

- totally revised the ImagePath feature and the usage of ImageLocator (including the usage with Jython import)
