    Without exact error messages, then its difficult to help. Post the output of running ./configure on the forum wrapped in code tags.

    You need to install libgnomeui-dev, libglade2-dev, libgnomevfs2-dev, libgtk2.0-dev. Those are the packges that ./configure showing as missing.

    Hello again,
    Thanks for your continued help.
    I have tried again configuring after downloading the missing packages but still it is not working.

    Here is a a copy of the last part of my terminal sessions.
    Apologies I have tried to use code markers but this time I can not manage to get post accepted.

    Is your version of libglade2 >= 2.3.6? Also would it not be quicker and easier to install from a prebuilt package for your distro?
