AMSN still doesnt work :P


I hate asking always the same, but I have asked friends and searched on the web and didnt found anything

The problem is: before, I had trouble finding where amsn was installed. I run 'locate amsn' and 'wish amsn' and I found it (or I thought so, it was on folder amsn and the file was called amsn).
But when I double-clicked it, a dialog box opened and said (more or less): "Nautilus failed due to a fatal error (segment violation)"
A friend said me that Nautilus is a browser and I had clicked on the wrong file, but as I said, it was on folder amsn and called amsn

So I dunno what I can do. should I uninstall amsn and reinstall it? or the same thing will happen?

Thanks for your help

open a terminal
cd into the directory and
./amsn

If that doesn't work, download the source, not the rpm, and extract it in your home directory and repeat above.

Download from amsn.sourceforge.net the file ending in
.tar.gz
into your home directory

tar xzvf file_you_downloaded

cd msn

./amsn
