Cannot Import Library!!

The problem is this. I wanted to make a project with a Ir remote control to control some leds e.t.c. But when I downloaded the library though it said that it was successfully imported and was shown in the libraries , when i imported it was not written with orange as the other libraries. Another problem that I do not know if it is relevant is that the arduino ide though it is downloaded and is working just fine, in the folder that contains all the arduino stuff when I select the arduino icon( i use windows 7) it does not show the arduino icon but the unknown icon(if I did not make that clear let me know) as well as in the desktop.

Thanks in advance!!

The orange color is just sugar. sweet but not necessary. IF the lib has a keywords.txt file it highlight those words.

For the icon, you need to select an .ino file -> right click -> open with ... -> tick the always open with tickbox (something like that)

Thanks for the response. I got that about the sugar. But it still does not work. I copied a simple program to see if it will works(here it is) :

#include <IRremote.h>
#include <IRremoteInt.h>


int RECV_PIN = 11;
IRrecv irrecv(RECV_PIN);
decode_results results;

void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(9600);
  irrecv.enableIRIn(); // Start the receiver
}

void loop() {
  if (irrecv.decode(&results)) {
    Serial.println(results.value, HEX);
    irrecv.resume(); // Receive the next value
  }
}

And I get this error when compiling:

In file included from sketch_oct05a.ino:3:
C:\Users\user\Documents\Arduino\libraries\IRremote/IRremoteInt.h:87: error: 'uint8_t' does not name a type

after importing a library you need to restart all instances of the IDE.

Which version of the IDE are you using? from what year is the lib you use? (there was some break with 1.0 and the uint8_t might be an indication)

To be sure I downloaded again the arduino IDE when the problem first occurred so i assume that is the latest(no???). About the year of the library I tried a few. But just to be sure how can I see the year? Do you have any library to suggest?(IR of course!)

Did you have any success with this? Im too having trouble just as you...
