  • Install the deep runtime library by extracting the ZIP archive from the download page to C:\Programm Data\deep\trglib (Windows), /opt/deep/lib (Linux) or any other location.
  • Start Eclipse and open the deep perspective.
  • Go to Window → Preferences → deep Preferences and change the default library path to the location where you've extracted the runtime library.
