Error Importing Compass Mixin Library

Hi guys anyone using the compass app here?

So I am using the compass app to compile sass. And so far so good. However whenver I import compass mixin via

@import "compass";

I am getting an error

/*

Errno::ESRCH: No such process - No message available

*/

I really don't know why this is happening. Any thoughts?

Hey Edward,

You need to import specific compass items, such as:

@import "compass/css";
@import "compass/utilities";

Hope this helps.

Thanks Wayne! I also tried loading specific folders like this one but it doesn't work as well. Actually I was going through the documentation in compass-style.org and it stated there that everything can be imported via

@import "compass";

I guess there's something wrong with compass app's newest release in Windows machines. I read from their github page about the same issue. Sigh. Everything else works fine. Susy works fine but not compass.

Sorry to hear that Edward, thanks for the heads up on only needing to import just compass to get everything though.

No problem Wayne. I already emailed the author of the app and hopefully they have some workarounds for me.
