Help locating and patching libwnck on Ubuntu
Hey, I've been googling to this for like two days now.

The problem is, I want Gaim to flash (URGENT Hint) upon recieving an IM. I've found a patch for libwnck that claims to solve this, but I can't figure out how to use it. Patch links will be included below. Thanks a lot in advance for helping. :D

Sorry, I can't post URLs without first posting five messages. :(

you will either:

a) have to find a package for ubuntu that has this package incorporated and _replace_ your current libwnk or:

recompile libwnck after patching the source ( again, you want to replace the one on your system, not ./configure,make, make install)

Thanks for the quick reply!

Could you possibly tell me how to replace the one on my system currently? As in, where I could locate it?

Thanks again. :)

Let me restate what I said. What I mean is: How to recompile it, and where the existing file is so that I could replace it.

Sorry for not being clear the first time.
