I have build the mix-ide from source, is there a way to change the solidity compiler it uses? I have tried to simply replace the solidity folder in the webumbrella directory with a new version but with no luck.

Is there a compile switch for it, or something similar?

    It's probably better to avoid Mix-ide all together. It was never completed and is a dropped project which remains buggy. Better to use Browser Solidity as a chrome extension coupled with TestRPC for development work. – o0ragman0o Dec 30 '16 at 1:17
  • I know, but also it is the only ide providing local files and some front end testing. See ethereum.stackexchange.com/questions/10596/… there seems to be no alternative. For testing I use Junit. (github.com/UrsZeidler/uml2solidity/wiki/TestWithJava) – uzeidler Dec 30 '16 at 1:21
  • Hooking through testRPC allows for front-end testing. Though yes, it would be nice if Browser Solidity had a save to local function. – o0ragman0o Dec 30 '16 at 1:31

    Not only save to local, but load from local, normally you want your files in a repo and have them checked out. The browser solidity cannot be used in this way, from what I know. So it also cannot resolve imports, when the files are local. These are essential features for an ide. – uzeidler Dec 30 '16 at 1:41
