      Hello Luis Miguel

      Sorry for the delay in replying.  I have been looking for that type of error, but I cannot explain it. I think you may have an old version of the C libraries. Could you tell me you distribution, gcc, glibc verions?

      Could you try to add

      #include <stdio.h>

      at the beginning of the main.c file?

        Hello John,

        including <stdio.h> resolved some errors (p.e. EOF undeclared) but the others one didn't. Finally, I compiled successfully linSmith in other linux box. I think the problem is I haven't installed libgnome-dev package, but I actually can't install it because of dependences errors.

        Conglaturations for this great project! I am in a forth course of Telecomunication Engineering at the Polythecnic University of Cartagena, Spain, and I am studing Transmission lines in a subject named 'Transmission over physics medium'.  We use in class, a propietary-commercial software named "Automated Smith Chart v4.0". At home, I prefer free software and linSmith. Perhaps anyday University choose free software against commercial.  I animate to you to continue developing this project.

        Luis Miguel.

          Hi Luis Miguel.

          Thanks for the kind words. You should _not_ need the development libraries. If I'm not mistaken, LIBGNOMEUI_MODULE should be defined in gnome-ui-init.h,
          This is located in

          This is installed with the libgnomeui package.

          A similar path leads to the other undefined. I suspect the path to you /include directory is not standard, and does not get searched completely.

          If you like - and have some time - I would like to know the problem, and if I can, try to avoid it in the future. Maybe I should add a test to ./configure.

          Thanks for reporting, and keep up the Linux publicity!
          I use Linux exclusively to teach at the University here.
