kmess intallation


The saga continues.....

Hey guys I am running Mandrake 9.1 in kde 3.1 mode, does anyone have installation instructions for Kmess-1.2.1.ta.gz files. I installed it the first time but the GUI looked querky, no emoticons, screen name emot.. were replaced by black boxes, something to do with the configuration, i tried ./configure --prefix=/opt/kde3, so the black boxes would get taken care of but it didn't seem to work. Plus the kmess icon cannot be used for the short-cut, but thats not really important as at now.

Anyone got kde 3.1 on mandrake 9.1 with install instructions.

thanks

me too r facing the same problem and can't know what is need for the congiufe

i can't understand this sentence wriiten in the install file:

n order for KMess to work properly, it must be configured with
your KDE3 directory. In order to do this using Mandrake 8.2, for
instance, configure with:

./configure --prefix=/opt/kde3

I'm told that with RedHat 7.2 and KDE3 installed from rpms, it should be

./configure --prefix=/usr

Basically, we're talking about the parent directory of /share/apps/k~bunch of apps~
