    FVWM2 and Libstroke.so.0

    K, I grabbed FVWM and tried to rpm -Uvh, it quickly returned libstroke.so.0 is needed to run FVWM, so off to google I went, found libstroke and installed it. Same result with the FVWM can someone tell me where to put the libstroke.so.0 file so I can get FVWM installed.

    Thanks

    Did you run ldconfig after installing libstroke?

    Re:FVWM2 and Libstroke.so.0

    Code:
    [pbharris@bugs ~]ll /usr/local/lib/libstrok*
    -rw-r--r--    1 root     root         3388 Apr  6 00:07 /usr/local/lib/libstroke.a
    -rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root          544 Apr  6 00:07 /usr/local/lib/libstroke.la
    lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           18 Apr  6 00:08 /usr/local/lib/libstroke.so -> libstroke.so.0.0.5
    lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           18 Apr  6 00:08 /usr/local/lib/libstroke.so.0 -> libstroke.so.0.0.5
    -rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root         5220 Apr  6 00:07 /usr/local/lib/libstroke.so.0.0.5
    [pbharris@bugs ~]
    and:

    Code:
    [pbharris@bugs ~]cat /etc/ld.so.conf
    /usr/kerberos/lib
    /usr/X11R6/lib
    /usr/lib/sane
    /usr/lib/qt-3.1/lib
    /usr/local/lib
    [pbharris@bugs ~]
    then like our friend Trickster said run ldconfig - if you need any help setting up strokes let me know.

    Re:FVWM2 and Libstroke.so.0

    Okay I did the ldconfig after figuring out the symlink thing

    I should have symlink like so right?

    ln -s /usr/local/lib/libstroke* /usr/lib

    Or should I

    ln -s/usr/local/lib/libstroke* /lib

    Either way ldconfig worked but fvwm still says it needs libstroke.so.0

    Do you need libstroke support? It's used so that you can bind mouse gestures to random commands. If you don't plan on using it you might as well force the install...
