    H1!

    I just downloaded latest binary 0.2.8-1.i386.rpm
    and installed it. There seems not to be .desktop
    file anywhere, but I tryed to start it in command
    line:

    $ screem

    screem-ERROR **: No Syntax files found, check your installation

    aborting...
    Aborted (core dumped)
    $

    I have also tryed to compile source rpm packages
    with 'rpm --rebuild screem*.src.rpm' and it stops
    when checking that gdk-pixbuf is >= 0.7.0. I have
    latest Helix Gnome and gdk-pixbuf 0.8.0 (devel also).

    My system is Redhat 6.1 with latest Helix Gnome.

    PS. Check http://gnome-fi.sourceforge.net
    It's made with Screem 0.2.3.

      The .desktop file should be in /usr/share/gnome/apps/Development/
      and in /usr/share/mc/templates/

      if it isn't then I've probably got the installation process wrong again.

      This is very strange.  The rpm is built by MartyJG and he reported no
      problems.  There are a couple of other reports of sytax files not being
      found, but I would expect more if it was a problem with screem.

      Again this is something I can not explain either.  As already mentioned
      MartyJG built the rpm, from the src.rpm that is available, also with the
      latest Helix Gnome.

      I am using gdk-pixbuf 0.8.0 myself and get no problems.

      Could you mail me the config.log file from /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/screem-0.2.8

      I ran into the same exact problem, but I tried using the tarball (screem-0.2.8.tar.gz) with the standard ./configure, make, and make install installation method, and that seemed to do the trick.

        The problem has been identified, and a new release is being uploaded now

      I have just downloaded the latest versio(?) 0.4-1 and am getting the same messages after installing the rpm.  I am using Suse7, KDE2.

      I shall try the tarball but I thought you should know anyway.

      P.S. I.Holmes gave me the link here. I used to work with him until a year ago.  He says hello(in geordie):)
      Cheers,

        The RPM is meant for RedHat, hence the filename of it.

        SuSE installs GNOME in a different path to Redhat, /opt/gnome instead of /usr.

        a quick fix is:

        ln -sf /usr/share/mime-info/screem* /opt/gnome/share/mime-info/

        a correct fix is to build from source, as you were planning on :-)
