I am attempting to install the Superfish module which has a dependency to the Libraries module. The documentation on the Libraries projects page is unclear on how to configure third party libraries. I checked the the README file with the Libraries module distribution and it only says to "Install as normal". I went searching through the issues and found the solution. I.E....

"The Libraries module itself should be located at sites/all/modules like any other module. The libraries (e.g. JS-libraries, etc.) should then be located at sites/all/libraries."

I recommend that you put this statement upfront and early on the project page and replace the Installation instruction in the README with this statement. This would have saved me several days of scratching my head.

Best Regards

Here's a little patch for README.txt

Version:7.x-2.x-dev» 7.x-1.x-dev
Status:Needs review» Active

Committed this to 7.x-2.x. http://drupal.org/commitlog/commit/10030/7b06333f0c914a8155d41c87b9bd5dd...

This could be backported to 7.x-1.x and 6.x-1.x even.

Patch *should* apply.
