    I'm basically having trouble installing it. Being all very new to Linux I have no idea how to interperet the errors I recieve... But this is the info I get after typing

    ./configue
    make

    Code:
    qextmdidefines.h:91: error: extra `;'
    make[4]: *** [qextmditaskbar.lo] Error 1
    make[4]: Leaving directory `/Programs/kbear-2.1/kbear/qextmdi'
    make[3]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
    make[3]: Leaving directory `/Programs/kbear-2.1/kbear/qextmdi'
    make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
    make[2]: Leaving directory `/Programs/kbear-2.1/kbear'
    make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/Programs/kbear-2.1'
    make: *** [all] Error 2
    If there is any other info you need I'll gladly post it. I'm currently running Fedora Core 3.

    Hm, those kinds of "error 1"s are still often pretty much a mystery to me when I try to compile some things, but it could be the corrupt file, a syntax error, a needed file missing.. let the compiling experts say..

    However, I just wanted to suggest that since there probably is KBear in your Fedora repository to try installing it from there instead of compiling from source. Also, there is another great FTP client with which you might have more luck: Krusader. In my opinion it's better than kbear. :P

    As to Kbear being in my Fedora repository, I'm completely unsure... mainly becuase I don't know how to check

    However, I downloaded Krusader, as you suggested and the installation was all rather amazing simple in comparison to everything else I've tried to install with linux. Consequently, it's working! Which is fantastic, so thanks for recommending that.

    For the future, you can open a terminal and as root, type:
    Code:
    yum install <program name>
    If the program is in your yum repositories, then yum will download the program along with the required dependancies and install it without hassle.

    Lets say it isn't. How do I add it?

    It's actually been a while since I last fiddled with Linux, is it yum.config you edit? I haven't got the comupter in front of me?

    Do most websites have the relivant code you need to add to the file so you can install it via yum? Or is there a central website?
