screenlets problem

i get this error trying to run "screenlets"

cat: /etc/screenlets/prefix: No such file or directory
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/screenlets-manager/", line 1308, in <module>
    app = ScreenletsManager()
  File "/usr/share/screenlets-manager/", line 95, in __init__
  File "/usr/share/screenlets-manager/", line 305, in create_ui
    w.set_icon_from_file(screenlets.INSTALL_PREFIX +'/share/icons/screenlets.svg')
glib.GError: Couldn't recognize the image file format for file '/usr/share/icons/screenlets.svg'
any help would be appreciated, and thanks in advance. i patched many of the previous errors, but cant get this one by my self.

to answer my own question for future thread finders. i had to compile and install "libgsf" and then compile "librsvg" i had compiled librsvg once, but it needed the libgsf to launch to program.
