if it's not in the top of directory of what you're trying to compile, then there's not one in it. skip that. just remember it for the future.

Hi, another question, thanks for hanging in there. In a thread above I replied that I tried:

ok tried the following in my python directory:

configure --prefix=/usr
make
make install
then
ldconfig
then try your superkaramba

Then you posted another thread saying:

this time try
configure --prefix=/usr

-----

haven't I already done that? thanks

i wanted you to try superkaramba or whatever it is installed in /usr/. a lot of gnome and gnome type software has to be installed in the same directories as the librariies they depend on.
and a lot of Makefiles and configure scripts don't find stuff in /usr/local/ for whatever reason.
configure --prefix=/usr just tells where to install to, and often makes poorly written configure scripts and Makefiles find stuff easier.
i will suggest that everything you compile for this particular project, you configure with that option.
