        New: With version 0.6 for a pleasant visual appearance, you have
        to copy
        or append the .gtkrc-2.0 file from the Leksah data folder or
        from the
        data folder in Leksah sources to your home folder. (Manual 7)

        Well we have made a concept, were you are basically free to
        every part of the Leksah window. So you are free to close every
        When I work this is my rescue:
        In Leksah there may be an active pane. The name of this
        pane is displayed in the second compartment from the left
        side in the status bar. Some actions like moving, splitting,
        closing panes or finding or replacing items in a text buffer
        act on the current pane, so check the display in the status
        bar to see if the pane you want to act on, is really the active
        one.(Manual 33)

        True. Not shure what it is really searching, but it needs to
        find both

        The import helper just looks in imported packages, so if you
        miss a
        package import, you have to fix it manually. It would be an
        feature for the future.

        This may be: The metadata collector has a problem parsing your
        file. Or
        the metadata is not up to date. So try to click on "Update
        metadata". If
        it stilll don't work try to look at the Metadata collection
        section of
        the manual, and try to report the original error.

        This is because cabal install uses the per user database of
        packages, while the default is the machine database. So you have
        to add
        --user to the ConfigFlags in Package / Package Flags.

        So, the last one was easy.

        Thank you for testing and taking the time to write it down.
        Maybe you
        can start a FAQ page on the Wiki.
