I got a github project and it use IDEA gradle build that with GradleFx 1.2.0

the build script like this

buildscript {
    repositories {
    dependencies {
        classpath group: 'org.gradlefx', name: 'gradlefx', version: '1.2.0'

repositories {
    ivy {
        name 'Apache Flex'
        artifactPattern '[revision]/binaries/[module]-[revision]-bin.[ext]'
    ivy {
        name 'Player Globals'
        artifactPattern '[module]/[module][revision].[ext]'

apply plugin: org.gradlefx.plugins.GradleFxPlugin

It shows error :

* What went wrong:
A problem occurred evaluating script.
> Failed to apply plugin [class 'org.gradlefx.plugins.GradleFxPlugin']
   > Declaring custom 'build' task when using the standard Gradle lifecycle plugins is not allowed.

    The error you got related to the custom 'build' task has been fixed GradleFx 1.4.0, but since 1.5.0 is already available I recommend upgrading to that version.

    Maybe it was a spelling mistake in your post, but it should be:

     apply plugin: 'ideafx'
    This works on my local machine with GradleFx 1.5.0

    I am using gradleFx and applying gradleFx plugin:
    apply plugin: 'gradlefx'
    and then defining attributes under task compileFlex
    compileFlex {
    flexHome = "${projectDir}/flex-sdk"
    srcDirs = ["${projectDir}/locale/en_US/"]
    localeDir = "${projectDir}/locale"
    type = 'swf'
    locales = ['en_US']
    output = "${projectDir}/webapp/'locales'/"

    I am getitng the following error:
    Failed to notify project evaluation listener. org/apache/commons/lang/StringUtils

    Any pointers are helpful.
