FC-2 tcl/tk problem and cluttering of nautilus.

I installed FC-2 yesterday. i tried to install amsn (alvaro's msn messenger), but it is not installing saying it needs /usr/lib/wish. If i do #whereis tcl

it shows tcl is installed. i also tried to set the environment variables (the path to tcl is /usr/lib/tcl8.4 and /usr/share/tcl8.4 if i remember correctly) after following instructions from But still the same problem.

Has anyone tried to install amsn on FC-2? or if someone can try to install amsn on FC-2 and let me know how to fix the problem?


i hate the cluttering of nautilus in FC-2. Unlike previos versions of gnome, trying to open each folder results in new folder window ... i tried to look for the settings to make it go back to old style so that each folder doesnt open with a new windows ... but i was not able to locate any such settings.

Yeah, the cluttering of nautilus has got me down too. I'll add to this post and ask if there is a way to get a location bar like in 2.4, and directory back and forward buttons, and a directory up button. It's like a giant step backward. I think it's totally unnavigable as well. Three clicks to open a location is ridiculous.

Tcl is already installed, tk don't

Remember to install the devel packages also so you could compile your own traydock.

yum install tcl-devel tk tk-devel (if I recall things right)
