Using Android Studio, how to specify "--info" to make project?

I've just switched over to Android Studio, from Eclipse, and I see this error :

Error:FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

  • What went wrong: Task 'compileDebugSources' not found in project ':myproject'.

  • Try: Run gradle tasks to get a list of available tasks. Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output.

How/where in the Android Studio UI do I specify "--info" ?


The answer to this question was to simply not go down this rabbit hole. What I did instead...

1) install Android Studio on my second Mac

2) check-out the project from git and open it

3) this time Android Studio actually stepped me through the issues at hand... which were :

a) build.gradle for a library project may not contain applicationId

b) replace runProguard with minifyEnabled

c) in your SDK manager, make sure you specifically have Android SDK Build-tools ver 20 installed. (I only had the latest)

Root cause ? No idea...
