Windowmaker dockapps

I have gotten a few and am having trouble getting them to work. I got and I put it in my /home/me/GNUstep file and then untarred it. Next I cd'd to the new folder and ran make and it came back with an error saying it can't find -lXpm. So I guess I need this so it will make and then make install. Where can I get it and where does it go? I looked around on google and most of the pages I saw with ths topic are in a foreign language. Also once it's installed I guess I have to execute the program to set a dockapp. So do I just type "volume" or would it be "volume-1.3"?

I already have some apps docked that were on my system like Netscape and xmms so I just don't know what to do with these others.

sounds like it can't find the Xpm library. trying searching for it on your hdd (updatedb; locate Xpm;). it's likely that your Xpm lib isn't named "", but rather something like "". i'd create a symlink to the new lib file like so:

ln -s

now as far as your docks go... just do this:


heh... you'd be amazed what you can learn from the included documentation. but most of those docks install their binaries to the /usr/local/bin/ dir, so look in there for them.
