activating annotation processing in idea

I'm trying to get annotation processing in IntelliJ IDEA to run, but without any success by now - either the processor doesn't run or there are exceptions during executing.

The concrete examples are AndroidAnnotations ( or dagger ( but none of this works.
I checked enable annotation processing and selected the jar which contains the processor.

AndroidAnnonations: fails
dagger: complains about missing dependencies

There's a blogpost explaining how to setup annotaion processing in Intellij IDEA 12 .
I tried that, but without any success

But my intention is to get dagger to run. it needs some dependent jars. In ADT I can define factory paths I dont find a possibility to define something similar in intellij.

I tried for 2 days now and it is really annoying.
So could someone please provide a working guide how to configure annoation processing correctly in latest IntelliJ CE build.

First why you didn't manage to setup AndroidAnnotations? What errors do you get? Or it just doesn't generate anything, does it?
