Hi everyone! I'm a combinatorialist trying to get my head around using lean, and my first problem is that I'm running into some install issues and not technically competent enough to fix them. I'm wondering if someone is able to help me with this?

We can try and help, the more detail you give us the better, which instructions did you follow? Which operating system and what errors are you seeing?

Thanks! I'm using mac os, and installed by typing the command at https://leanprover-community.github.io/install/macos.html . I also have vscode with the extension; I'm getting a lean infoview on the right etc. But when I import the project from https://github.com/bryangingechen/lean-matroids , I get a large number of errors - unknown identifier, uses sorry, etc

I suspect the problem is with my version, which shows as 3.18.4 on the command line and when I include the version code snippet on vscode. I probably want something else, but don't know how to update or change

Ah, that code is pretty old and relies on an old version of Lean and mathlib. However, running leanproject get bryangingechen/lean-matroids should check out a usable copy.

How are you importing the project? And how did you get the https://github.com/bryangingechen/lean-matroids project. Have you read https://leanprover-community.github.io/install/project.html

do you have leanproject? It should handle getting the version right

view this post on Zulip Peter Nelson (Aug 12 2020 at 15:56):

yes, I used leanproject, but with the github url

I will try what Bryan said - if leanproject is supposed to get the version right, is there still something that's not working, though?

I just tried running leanproject get https://github.com/bryangingechen/lean-matroids in a new directory and then opened the lean-matroids directory in VS Code and got it to work.

Make sure you open the entire directory in VS Code, not just an individual file.

Same as Bryan, the following works for me (on osx):

ok, I did what Bryan suggested, and there is a massive improvement, however I get exactly one error: matroid.lean:1051:0
declaration 'matroid.indep_of_rank' uses sorry

oh, now I see that lemma is a work in progress - presumably that's not a problem then

thanks for all your help!

Yeah, I never finished those proofs, unfortunately.

By the way, the fintype2 branch has slightly better Lean code with a few more comments (though it doesn't quite get as far as the master branch). You can inspect that branch by running (from within lean-matroids):

git checkout fintype2
leanproject get-mathlib-cache

(If you have the project open in VS Code then you'll have to restart Lean by hitting ctrl+shift+P and searching for "Lean: Restart")
