Unhappy I have Installed TCL but cant TK please help this NooB

Hi, I'm v.v.v.v new to linux only installed it the other day... and i want to use my fav IM program (msn messenger) so i downloaded amsn...

as i found out u need tcl and tk installed to be able to use amsn

some how in the early hours in the morning i managed to install tcl but i really cant remember how i did it! but today I'm trying to do the same with tk.. i do ./configure --prefix=prefix && make && make install

and at some point it brings errors! error 1 i think..

i would be really grateful if i can have a step by step to install tk..

or id like to reinstall both tcl and tk the correct way

or even better be told what i have done wrong as well

thanks for any replies

You need to install other source files, for compiling. It should come with the linux CD's. i think you need the X server ones...

hope that helps..
