amsn 0.9


Ok, I have just donwloaded amsn 0.90, I thought I would try the .bin installer.

when typing ./amsn-0.90-installer.bin it says bash: ./amsn-0.90-installer.bin: Permission denied

I have switched to root in terminal using the su command it still says the smae thing!! any ideas?

Once the program has been untarred, cd into the new aMSN directory and type in ./amsn and it will run. Please see the readme file for more detail.

Where did you get it from? I got mine from amsn.sourceforge.net and those instructions worked perfectly.


PS - where in Kent?

Cool - glad it all works.

I used to live in Thanet and worked in Canterbury for a while.

Did you untar and run it as root the first time or as a user? What you could do is simply delete the aMSN folder and re-untar and run it - making sure you are not root.

Probably also a good idea to enable the "view hidden files" option in your file manager and delete the ".amsn" folder too. That way you get to start from scratch.
