How do I setup Ergo-EQ?


See the Environment Setup page and choose the setup guide according to your current version of Eclipse.

Where can I download the Ergo repository file?


Download repositories.xml or contact the Ergo development team.

How do I update the Ergo repository file?


After downloading repositories.xml,

  1. Start Ergo-EQ, then go to File > Preferences
  2. Select File Locations (on the left hand side of the dialog box)
  3. For "Repository update service URL:", replace the text there with file:/C:/repositories.xml. Click OK.
  4. Restart Ergo

For Mac users on Step 3, if you were to put repositories.xml in " /home/my-id/repositories.xml", then you would update that file url to be file:/home/my-id/repositories.xml .  

How can I subscribe/unsubscribe to a mailing list?


 To either subscribe/unsubscribe to a mailing list: 

  1. Address the email to a majordomo server: majordomo@ncsa.illinois.edu
  2. Put the commands in the message body (not in the "Subject:" header)
  3. Begin the body of the mail message with the commands (in other words, do not begin with "Dear majordomo")
    1. To subscribe, type (including the hyphen): 
      1. - subscribe ergo-user
      2. - subscribe ergo-dev
    2. To unsubscribe, type (including the hyphen):
      1. - unsubscribe ergo-user
      2. - unsubscribe ergo-dev
  4. Add - end at the end of the message (including the hyphen) 

Where are the ergo-settings and the ergo.log files stored in Mac OS X?


ergo-settings and ergo.log are stored inside the Ergo-EQ application. Right click the Ergo-EQ application and select "Show Package Contents" then navigated to Contents/MacOS. Inside this folder you should see both the ergo-settings folder and the ergo.log file.

On the Mac, I get the error "could not load component shared library" when starting ERGO


This is a known issue on some newer versions of Mac OS X.  Until we find a permanent fix, you can launch ERGO using the following workaround:

  1. Right-click (or Ctrl-Click) the Ergo application icon, and select "show package contents"
  2. In the window that opens, navigate to "Contents", then "MacOS"
  3. Double-click the Ergo icon 
  4. If a prompt appears asking whether to run the application, select "Open"
