  2. Expand the Annotation Processing section and select Factory Path. Check "Enable project specific settings" and then click "Add JARs…". Navigate to the project's libs/ folder and select the Butter Knife jar.

  3. Click "Ok" to save the new settings. Eclipse will ask you to rebuild your project to which you should click "Yes"
  4. Make sure that the .apt_generated/ folder is in your project root. It should contain files like YOURACTIVITY$$ViewBinder.java. If these files are not present trigger a clean build by selected Project → Clean. This folder and files should not be checked into revision control.
