How exactly doesn't it work? Does make install produce an error?

asuthar2004 09-01-2004 11:25 AM

not really.... i do the ./configure command but i doesnt configure the the source and after that i do make and make install that either doesnt work.. i would like to know where all the dockapps are install in the harddrive (location of installation) and also would like to know how to make changes to the start menu........
that would really be appreciated

thx again fer the help Typhoonmentat(***btw i did affero fer u)

Well, first of all you need to install the appropriate tools. You need to download the dpkg structure - do this from the "Extras & Enhancements" menu, and then type:
apt-get -f install
apt-get install gcc g++ make
(just answer yes to all the questions).
Then you'll have the appropriate tools to compile your software.

The dockapps are most likely installed in /usr/bin, and they should begin with "wm" - e.g. wmacpi, wmmem and so on. If you want to make changes to the menu, edit /home/knoppix/.fluxbox/menu and add your entries in a similar format.
Also, what do you mean by affero - me being the technophobe, of course ;)

checking how to run the C preprocessor... /lib/cpp

Try "apt-get install cpp" as well.
