When I try to install sjog from the rpm, I get this
message:

rpm -i sjog-0.6-2.i586.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
libgtk+1.2 >= 1.2 is needed by sjog-0.6-2

I'm running RH 7.3, and the gtk libraries are
installed. However, I notice that they are listed as
`libgtk-1.2...', not `libgtk+1.2...'.

Is this the source of the problem? If so, is there a
simple solution/workaround?

I'm at wroberts@odu.edu

    I had the same problem, the libgtk+1.2 is included with
    Fedora FC2, so I installed it with the --nodeps like this:

    rpm -Uvh --nodeps sjog-0.6-2.i586.rpm

    (-U=upgrade, -v=verbose, -h=hash marksto show progress)

    Now I just have to find out how to make sjog start when I
    start my SRX87, and why I can only change the brightness
    when I start sjog as root and why the brightness control
    works in reverse. ie 100% is the darkest, and 0% is the
    brightest..

    Ok, I am looking forward to this new Linux world. 8-)
