i am trying to install amsn i just download fron net latest one
i tried this
tar xvf amsn-x_xx.tar
but both doesn't work
some on recomend me to downlload TCL/TK
then i downloded TCL/TK latest pakege in tar.gz and untar them. please tell how can i install these pakges and after that what other stepps i need to install and configure amsn
type "whereis wish" or "locate wish" and see if you can find it that way, if it does show you the path of where it is, then open up the amsn file and edit the first line so it points to the location of the wish interpretor...
the first line should look like #!/usr/bin/wish
if thats not the case then yes you will have to properly install tcl/tk, and to install and configure it depends how the package is set up..the typical steps are:
su to root and type password
but you'll noticed when you extract the tarball that there are two files --> README and INSTALL just read them if the steps i shown above are not correct and do as per README/INSTALL.
i think its requier tcl/tk
i tried to install it
downladed file tcl8.4.4-src.tar.gz
i untar it withis command
tar zxvf tk8.4.4-src.tar.gz
cmd = ./configure
error = bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
i also tried make
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
and make install
make: *** No rule to make target `install'. Stop.
there are instructions on how to install it on the red hat 9 page of my guide and the software page, I used the source like you and it worked fine. Keep in mind that you need the development tools to install anything that is source.
yes devboy that is correct, but when he runs just ./amsn after extracting the tarball he gets an error, and the next thing you are supposed to try if a simple ./amsn will not work is to type "wish amsn" which he is also again getting an error, so just for you'll be on the same page, thats what is going on, and know he is trying to install tcl/tk because if both commands will not work when trying to run amsn there is something fishy about his tcl/tk D: which is what we are now trying to resolve, and here is the section yowww is talking about:
Amsn - Gaim is great, but you can't send files through the msn client of Gaim yet, so sometimes it is good to use Amsn. Sometimes people just prefer to use Amsn due to its replication of Msn in windows so it is familiar. Anyway, this is kind of a pain to install so I will try to be as detailed as possible. First of all, you need to make sure you upgrade your version of TK for red hat 9 - get the red hat 9 rpm for TK here. I got this one: tk-8.3.5-88.i386.rpm. After you download it, you need to use the upgrade function of rpm, so therefore, you will need to open your terminal in the directory where you downloaded the TK file and then get root priveleges and then type: rpm -Uvh tk(tab to autocomplete) This will upgrade your current version of TK to 8.3.5-88. You need this to run amsn.
Next you can download a copy of amsn. I tried to use the rpm file but it gave me a script error so I decided to try using the source. The source worked fine. So, I went here and downloaded the amsn 0.80 source. I saved it and then basically all you have to do is extract it where you want it. So, I chose to have it extracted in my /usr/local directory. To be safe, I copied it there first before extracting it and then I deleted the tar.gz from /usr/local. Here is what I did:
assuming you saved the tar.gz (source file in /home/user/software)
open the terminal:
my amsn is working fine guied me how to creat shortcut on desktop for all or any specific user.
and how i can upgreat it with new version
i isntall amn with very dificulties but with the help of some above members i jave all step by step procedure, if any one requier i can post it.
