Can't run giFT??


I have installed giFT correctly ( I think ) and when I enter giftd i get an error saying unable to open OpenFT and it has no idea why. . And neither do I. I follwed the Installation instructions and did ./configure, make, make install on all the needed parts of giFT (gift itself , OpenFT, Fast Track plugin etc. Any ideas??

Did you read the configuration in the /home directory of the user file?You have to change 0 to another value in there to make it work.

The file is under giFT (hidden directory) in the users /home directory.It's called giftd.conf.
