Installing and Setting up Saros

To install Saros go the the help menu in Eclipse and then choose "Install New Software"

In the "Work With" field copy/paste http://download.eclipse.org/tools/gef/updates/releases/ into it and hit enter. Eventually a few packages will appear. Choose the latest one and install it. Straightforward.

Then you must do the same thing except with http://dpp.sourceforge.net/update. You only have one package to choose from. Install that and you will be done.

Problem seems to be that the original install script for Saros tried referring to a link that no longer exists. If you install the dependency beforehand though from the first link everything works just fine.

Now to set up Saros you go to Saros and then start the configuration. Input your gmail and password AND NOW expand the window downward and press the server button. Put gmail.com in there. Then configure it as you wish. (I would set it to auto connect).
