Question aMSN's traydock unable to load. (Fedora Core 1)

Hi all,

I'm having trouble getting the KDE3/GNOME2 traydock plugin for aMSN 0.83 working. It compiles and "makes" all nicely, and I'm left with the proper file, but when I try to load aMSN with traydock enabled, I get this error message:


Error in startup script: couldn't load file "./plugins/traydock/": cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
while executing
"load $ext Tray"
(procedure "trayicon_init" line 12)
invoked from within
(procedure "init_dock" line 23)
invoked from within
(file "amsn" line 254)


I have all the latest tcl/tk sources (8.4.5) as well as any needed library files including as I can get aMSN to work, just not with the traydock plugin. Do any of you know how to remedy this problem? I've been at it forever, and can't get it to work!

Thanks, HM

It's a stab in the dark, but how are you launching amsn?

If you've linked the amsn file to, say, /usr/bin so that you can run it without going to the installation folder, then it may be looking for the .so file in /usr/bin/plugins (which probably doesn't exist), instead of the plugins folder in the installation folder (/usr/msn/plugins on my box).

Maybe not though...

I had the same problem as you are having with the cvs version of amsn, what I did to solve it was really easy. I got a .deb package of amsn-0.90-4, uncompressed it and copied the that comes with the package to the traylib directory where I installed my amsn copy.

If you are using debian I could send it to you by email, otherwise you could download an rpm version of amsn from their webpage.
