    will - 2004-07-12

    Hi, this is my first post. I discovered screem in my synaptic list of programs, looked at the site, and really really want it. Actually it turned out I had an old version in my Mandrake 9.2 distrib. I uninstalled and installed the newest version using synaptic. When I clicked on the icon, nothing happened. I tried putting 'screem' in the terminal, and again nothing. I uninstalled again, and then used apt-get in the terminal:

    [root@localhost willnapier]# apt-get install screem

    Right now, synaptic tells me it is installed, and I have loads of screem files and folders. But again, when I click on the binary in /usr/bin, nothing happens. Any help greatly appreciated - I would like to get into screem v much. Will.

      this is either a problem with the package not having being built properly by whoever built it, or a problem with the gdk package you have installed.

      I guess it could also be that gdk isn't in a normal location, so you would need to add the path prefix to /etc/ld.so.conf
