amsn needs a command I don't have (lol)


hi,

I upgraded my system latly and I've been having some problems with AMSN about a TkCximage but I got it solved.

But it seems amsn doesn't like me, lol. It need the command "wish" which I don't have, lol.
here's the error message:
Code:
$ amsn
amsn: line 3: exec: wish: not found
$
So I try which wish
Code:
$ which wish
/usr/bin/which: no wish in (/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/home/stefaan/bin)
$
maybe it's not in the path? let's try:
Code:
$ locate wish
/usr/share/apps/quanta/doc/php/function.jdtojewish.html
/usr/share/apps/quanta/doc/php/function.jewishtojd.html
$
All these things together, looks like I don't have the 'wish' command. How to get it or how to install it or something like that?

thanks in advance

On my system 'wish' is owned by the 'tk' package. Do you have tk installed?

I didn't have both TCL and TK but I now yummed them and amsn doesn't work. I get the TkCxImage error again. It says that I need to follow the instructions in the 'install' file, so I do this:
Code:
# vi INSTALL


In order to install amsn, or even to be able to launch it, you will need to compile it first.
To do so, you must first configure the package by executing the command
> ./configure
You must have the tcl-dev and tk-dev packages installed on your system, please refer to your system package management software or website in order to find these packages and to install them prior to running the ./configure script.
Once the configure script finished without any error, you can proceed with the compilation, it is as simple as typing :
> make
You can now launch amsn by typing
> ./amsn
Or you can install it with the command
> make install
Then you can use the
> amsn
command to launch future sessions of amsn.
You can also create a .deb and .rpm package by launching respectively the command
> make deb
and
> make rpm

For any other help, please refer to the FAQ or the website at http://amsn.sourceforge.net or visit the forums of amsn, but make sure you search for an answer to your question before asking it, it might have already been answered.

have fun.
./configure needs to be done and to do so, you need to have both TK and TCL installed (I yummed them as you could read above ).

So what I do next is:
Code:
# ./configure
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
#
No such file or directory.... how to get this one solved?

thanks

It sounds like you are in the wrong directory when you run "./configure".
You need to be in the source directory of amsn (ie: the directory that was created when you untarred amns)
