Hey all. I want to install addtional swing components for IntelliJ. I downloaded swing-complete-0.1.zip (contains Jar file and XML file). the web page says : put XML file in %IDEA_CONFIG%/palette where can I find %IDEA_CONFIG% dir ?
To the best of my knowledge there is not an environment variable that holds IDEA�s config directory info. By default, the directory (named ".IntelliJIdea") is placed in the user�s home directory, but placing it in the IDEA installation directory or a user specified directory are options during install. Ultimately you are looking for a directory with the structure:
which is the %IDEA_CONFIG% directory. Try looking in your home directory (C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\.IntelliJIdea on windows or ~/.IntelliJIdea on *nix) for it. If that fails, do a search for ".IntelliJIdea", and if that fails, search for config (although that is likely to get a lot of non-relevant hits). [ September 30, 2004: Message edited by: Mark Vedder ]
