I wasn't aware of the existance of that fork. But to use it, you could clone it, or download it locally, and then drop the TinyMceDeluxe folder into the Modules folder of your Orchard project.

The way I work with Orchard, I always set up a clone of the main Orchard code locally, and then pull in the source code for any modules I want to use into the Modules folder. So from that standpoint, yes, you'd have to compile it yourself. I think it would probably work if you installed from gallery and overwrote the files with the changes you see in the "FullFeatured" fork. I haven't tried that method but it should also work. I couldn't help troubleshoot if you go that route though.

So here's what i'd do (these steps are off the top of my head, not meant as a runnable script, more as a rough guide of steps to follow):

cd c:\projects\
mkdir myOrchardProj
hg clone myOrchardProj ## replace the url with the actual codeplex Mercurial repo URL)
cd myOrchardProj\src\Orchard.Web\Modules\
mkdir TinyMceDeluxe
hg clone TinyMceDeluxe

I'd also set up the TinyMceDeluxe folder as a sub-repository, but that's another topic.

Then, if you needed to, you could make even more customizations to any of the files to customize the TinyMCE editor even further. Then compile, and deploy using the methods in the main Orchard documentation. Hope this helps!

many thanks for your help.
I've tried the way of overwriting the installed version from the Orchard Gallery of TinyMcedeluxe with the downloaded/cloned Fully Featured version.
It worked.
Small hint is for everyone, to clear the browser cache, to be able to see the new toolbars appended.
I checked some functions and worked as expected without any errors.
Kind regards
