This guide is outdated, the source code is now on out GIT account (gitorious.org) not on SVN (sourceforge.net) anymore.
This guide explains how to set up a development environment (IDE) to compile and run ElphelVision under Ubuntu.
sudo apt-get install subversion
Download and install Netbeans IDE from http://netbeans.org/ The "Java SE" edition is all we need.
Open a terminal and create a folder of your choice, once you cd to that folder type:
svn co https://elphel.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/elphel elphel
Start Netbeans and open the project file File->Open Project located at "elphel/Apertus/Java App" from the SVN checkout we just did.
Choose Run->Run Main Project
or press F6
