Hey!

I'm fairly new to linux myself, but I think I can help you out. After the initial command (tar xzvf filename.tar.gz) a folder by the name of msn or amsn is created. You can go into that directory and type in ./amsn or you can go to run and type in amsn.

Hope this helps.

When I downloaded it it came has a rpm file.Double click the icon for the download to do the install.Now during the install it might tell you the signature is wrong but tell it yes to install anyway.Once its installed it will make a file called msn basically in the folder your download icon is in. Then click the big K for the k menu assuming your using KDE and click the run command and type /home/lynn/Download/msn/amsn. But in your case put in your name and the path to the amsn inside the msn folder.Hope that helps I'm a newbie so Good Luck

Hi.

In that folder there will be a file called amsn. If you double click that it will start the program. As you can probably tell I'm used to using M$ Windows hence the approach.

Try it and see if it works.

Good Luck!

Sorry man, I'm fresh outta ideas. Try unzipping in your /home folder and then following the suggested approach. Or better yet, try reading the README.
