how to manually create ~/.giFT /gift.config ??

So after spending the past few days attempting to complie and install giFT from source files including finding a gcc and g++ complier and all neccesary dependancies I am finally successful (well mostly) .

gift is installed and i successfully ran the setup (including entering a 1 instead of the defult zero in the first step). however the ~/.giFT/ file was never created in my home/localusr/ directory. shoudl I worry? if so, how do i fix this?

This is my fist install from source files so a newbie type answer would be appriciated.

I am running Mandrake 9.2, KDE 3.1, giFT 0.11.6

Are you sure that the ~/.giFT directory wasn't created? Try executing the command 'ls -a' from a terminal. Files (and directories) whose names begin with a period are hidden and won't show up unless you specify to show all files.

Then the relevant file is giftd.conf (not gift.config) in the ~/.giFT directory.
