    installing amsn


    i wanted to install amsn so i d ownloaded this file called amsn-0.94-3-linux-installer.bin

    i type ./amsn-0.94-3-linux-installer.bin and then when trying to install i get this error

    The installer could not find a valid Tcl/Tk
    environment in this machine. Make sure 'wish' is in
    your path and run the installer again. You can download
    Tcl/Tk binaries at http://www.activestate.com/tcl/
    and Tcl/Tk sources at http://tcl.sf.net

    what should i do?? i looked at those sites and i get still dont get it... 8,(

    The installer needs tcl/tk to function properly. Most distros have a version available; what distro are you using?

    Is there any reason you specifically want to use amsn instead of something like kopete or gaim?
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    It's possible that MS changed the authentication protocol a bit since 10.1 (they've done it in the past). In Mandrake, you should be able to open up the Mandrake Control Center, go to the software installation module, and do a search for tcl (and the same for tk) then install it. After that, the amsn installer should work (or at least give you a different error message ).

    thanks that fixed it.. amsn is installed and working perfectly, another thing id like to know is why it wont minimize down beside the clock thinggy like kopete... instead it just goes down on the panel

    most things that are linked to KDE such as kopete minimize to the kicker by the clock...other things don't

    That theme is for windowmaker; the default desktop environment for Mandrake/Mandriva is KDE. You would have to install windowmaker and then install the theme to see it.
