    Need help installing Kopete (total linux newbie)

    Hello,

    I'm just totally new to linux, happy the install happenned at once (unlike my decade of windows experiences :(), and now i'm feeling myself completely lost in this new system. My distribution is SuSE 9.1 with KDE 3.2, and to make things better and cooler for me i downloaded Kopete 0.10.3 in a tar.bz2 file. I used the installing guide on this site(except the options for the tar extractor, had to change them to bzip of course). Then i switched to the INSTALL instructions, but things were completely going wrong :-\:

    I was just wondering how to fix this, or is there anywhere a kind of installer for Kopete?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi,

    That sounds like you did not install the development libraries (c compilers, etc.) This usually happens if you select a Desktop installation.

    I have not used Suse in a while. I believe there should be an option on the menu to "add programs." You will need your Suse cd. Once there, select C/C++ Compiler and Tools. It should get the needed files from the cd.

    Re:Need help installing Kopete (total linux newbie)

    Hi,
    Thanks for the reply,
    but everything for C/C++ on the cd was already installed

    I looked in YaST under "Install and Remove software", was i right? And wat is the 'real' way to get Kopete installed?

    Thanks in advance,

    Aljosha

    Re:Need help installing Kopete (total linux newbie)

    That's peculiar. what is the output of the command
    Code:
    gcc -v
    ?

    You cna get an rpm package for kopete. That is a precompiled package that just installs, similar to the way you do it under Windows.
    You can either get the rpm package from a website, or use a tool like apt4rpm to get them fro you.

    Here is a link that says how to set up apt.

    Thanks,
    It works, got GCC, and also kopete with that application, it's really great. But it keeps giving me the old Kopete without the MSN messenger fix :

    It loads the old Kopete becuase there's probably not a newer version yet on the repository you are using.
