Yesterday I did the Great Leap and upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 (from Jaunty). Everything ok, even the microphone worked and java apps are working fine. Some odd problems with the Executable bit but i worked around that (I'm not the usual MicroUser and I know what i do, most of the time).
The problem came when i searched the software centre (that froze over trying to install NetHack-x11, LOL) for Gnomad2 or something that could substitute, although i'd rather stick with it, in using my Zen Micro, a 6-years-old mp3 player, but with the new battery paid 11€ he returned magically to the rocking days when it was right out-of-the-box.
Nothing found, so i downloaded the source of gnomad2 2.9.4, trying to compile it by myself. OPs, i can't find dependencies: libnjb (>=2.2.4) and gtk+-2.0 (>=...?).
libnjb is available in synaptic, but executing ./configure still gives me the message that libnjb is missing.
searching for gtk+-2.0 throws me in a jungle of packages. too much for me
what's not working? i've read about a malfunctioning version of Gnomad2, but the bigger problem is that Gnomad2 isn't supported anymore - but it worked greatly.
thanks for answering!
