Question amsn and traydock


I have aMSN installed, and it's working fine.
However, I would like to use that handy traydock thing, but I can't seem to compile it.
Just for the record: I know about gaim and all other IM's, but i would like to use this one.

Did anyone ever manage to compile this traything ?

well whats the errors? all you do is go to :
cd /msn/plugins/traydock
and then run ./configure
and then fire up amsn and go to tools-->options-->docking
and select a docking method....
but to me it sounds like your trying to say you are getting errors, which in turn you'll have to tell us...
by chance if its the tk/tcl error try specifying it with configure..
./configure --with-tcl=/path/to/tcl --with-tk=/path/to/tk

When i try to compile it ( ./configure ) it gives the following output:

ERROR: Needs a system with Imlib 1.8.2 or higher
You can obtain it from:

configure: error: Fatal Error: no Imlib detected.
Imlib and imlib-devel are installed ???

Thanks for your help!

Still no Luck

OK,

I tried a lot now, but still haven't found the answer.

I cannot believe I am the only one with this problem, because I found a lot of others with the same thing. However, i can't seem to find the answer.

If anyone knows or has a clue, please help!

Thanks!

before typing "make install", type in "su" (minus the quotes), hit enter, enter the root password and then type in make install.

make install is NOT required, read the reamde... i compiled it well (u need tcl/tk8.3 and that library if u use debian, i suggest u use dslect and read carefully!! else u should download it @ google....)

i didn't get the traydock to work --> need a bigger KDE version or so.... dunno what exactly:\

but good luck m8!

I was in WinXP when posting before. I am now in Linux and have installed the traydock app.
From the readme file, you need to ./configure and make as a user.

Once that's been done, open aMSN and then dock it.

You will need tcl/tk and imlib 1.8.2 or higher.
