Installation tips (from NG:digitalmars.D.announce/949)

You may need to remove the original eclipseD first.

I found that Eclipse can remember the associated program to open the D file. If eclipseD is used to open the D file before, Eclipse uses eclipseD to open it. So remove eclipseD first and restart Eclipse. Eclipse will find blackbird to open D files. Then you can copy the removed eclipseD back again. But eclipse opens the D file using blackbird this time since it remembers blackbird as the associated program to open D files.

Apparently, development of blackbird has been halted due to its author's involvement with DDT (part of the EclipseD project at ( NG:digitalmars.D/30103, NG:digitalmars.D/30113, NG:digitalmars.D/30114).
