I am trying to test bitcoinj on Ubuntu, but I am having some trouble. I am not experienced with Java delvelopment, so maybe I am missing something obvious

Here are the steps I follow to build bitcoinj
Code:
sudo apt-get install libslf4j-java
svn checkout http://bitcoinj.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ bitcoinj
cd bitcoinj
ant

The last command results in the following error:

Code:
Buildfile: ~/Desktop/Dev/bitcoinj/build.xml

init:

compile:
    [javac] Compiling 814 source files to ~/Desktop/Dev/bitcoinj/out
    [javac] ~/Desktop/Dev/bitcoinj/src/com/google/bitcoin/core/Block.java:25: package org.slf4j does not exist
    [javac] import org.slf4j.Logger;
    [javac]                 ^
    [javac] ~/Desktop/Dev/bitcoinj/src/com/google/bitcoin/core/Block.java:26: package org.slf4j does not exist
    [javac] import org.slf4j.LoggerFactory;
    [javac]                 ^

How can I get it to find the slf4j package?

Thanks.

Open build.xml and change this:
<classpath path="lib/junit-4.8.2.jar"/>
to this:
<classpath path="lib/junit-4.8.2.jar"/>
       <classpath path="lib/sl4j-api-1.6.1.jar"/>
       <classpath path="lib/sl4j-simple-1.6.1.jar"/>

That should probably do it.
slf4j is a recent addition and just didn't get added to the build script.

Whoops, fixed. Updating to svn head should resolve things. You don't need to install it from apt - the source tree is self contained.

The best place to ask questions about bitcoinj is the mailing list. Did you know there was one? Maybe I need to make it more visible.

Thanks. It's working now.

Try running it like this:
Code:
java -classpath .:../lib/* com.google.bitcoin.examples.PingService

In the mean time file an issue report at the bitcoinj project so the build can get fixed to include the logger.
