Richmond,

So the installation of plugins is a bit more customizable than I thought. My instructions worked for Mac and Windows but not Linux if there is no pre-existing location for them that the IDE already knows about. If there was or you specifically told LIveCode where it should be my instructions might not work.

I have updated the instructions for a fresh installation and also included the following link to RunRev's installation page.

You should not need to change the suffix unless you are installing it for Revolution instead of LiveCode.

Sorry for the confusion.
