Success! I could do this for any know package installed that provides this service (tgz)? Where do I link the shell shortcut to?
Now, I have a warning message saying SSL support is needed for MSN messenging. I was linked here but don't understand the below.
There's a 3rd party package for Slackware 9.1 here : http://www.uidzero.co.uk/pkg/slack91/
This package does not have gtkspell support because gtkspell is not part of the base Slackware distribution (same package is also at http://www.linuxpackages.net/
). This one should work out of the box.
The Gaim 0.74 package from Slackware does NOT work out of the box. I have not tried, but adding /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4 to /etc/ld.so.conf and running ldconfig as root *might* fixinate it.
Or you can use the Gaim source, with mozilla-1.4 installed (if you have another version of mozilla, try replacing 1.4 with your version number):
./configure --with-nss-includes=/usr/include/mozilla-1.4/nss \
Also, you'll need to add /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4 to /etc/ld.so.conf and run ldconfig as root
If you have Mozilla Firebird installed instead of plain Mozilla 1.4, you might be able to use the packages mentioned above by adding this directory to /etc/ld.so.conf and running ldconfig as root:
This has been reported to work with Mozilla Firebird 0.7, other versions might work but this has not been thoroughly tested
