Question Systray in aMSN


I want a systray to my aMSN...
When I try to set it, it says: "Not compiled, verify plugins/traydoc
In /root/.amsn/plugins there is no traydoc. I can find it either in amsn.souceforge.net...
And now? What am I expected to do?

Using KDE, distro: CL-10.

1. Don't run as root!!
2. Have you installed amsn in /root?
3. Did you install from source or RPM/DEB of some sort?

(it 3 is yes, it could be they removed anything that needed to be compiled)

You're running as root? You should set up a user account and run as that. As I recall from the last time I ran aMSN, you need tcl/tk to get the tray icon - do you have it?

Let me see
1 - Yes, I'm running as root? I'm the only user in this computer... What is the problem? Security? There is nothing interesting for hacking...
2 - /opt/amsn-0.94/amsn is the directory where AMSN is.
3 - No, I used a .bin
4 - I've got tcl/tk

And then?

The plugins directory should be in amsn install directory ( /opt/amsn-0.94/amsn on your system ). And if you are connecting to the internet as root, in almost no time at all you will not be the only user on your system.
