I think I will install Gnopernicus and do it that way. I can't compile gnome-mag. It wants some packages that I cant install using Synaptic. The list is:-
Are there normally packages like this that are not available when you try to compile an open source program? I did check, Ubuntu does come with gcc and cc and make programs. Will Gnome-mag 0.1.4.4 be available in Gutsy?
libloginhelper-1.0 >= 1.5.2
libbonobo-2.0 >= 1.107.0
ORBit-2.0 >= 2.3.100
glib-2.0 >= 2.11.1
gtk+-2.0 >= 2.1.0
gdk-pixbuf-2.0 >= 2.1.0
gdk-pixbuf-xlib-2.0 >= 2.1.0
) were not met:
No package 'libloginhelper-1.0' found
No package 'gtk+-2.0' found
No package 'gdk-pixbuf-2.0' found
No package 'gdk-pixbuf-xlib-2.0' found
Again thank you very much for your help. I will try to install Gnopeernicus and hope it works. Otherwise I may have to live this USB drive on the shelf and wait for Gutsy. If the Gutsy Live CD has half screen magnification by default, and full screen magnification doesn't work I will have to go into Windows and get Windows Disk Manager to recogines the USB drive and format an NTFS partition for the entire disk that has full screen magnification through Dolphin software I am using on Windows XP right now.
I hope I don't have to use the final option.
