View Full Version : Automatic Script for Anti-Aliasing aMSN

This is a fully automated script to add anti-aliasing support to aMSN. This will compile Tcl and Tk 8.5 and recompile aMSN 0.97 for it. This will NOT replace your existing Tcl/Tk installation, so this method is much safer to use and easier to revert than other non-compilation methods. This script works on Edgy, Feisty and Gutsy, and works on both 32-bit and 64-bit processors.

Here is a screenshot of what it will look like when the script finishes:

Updates

January 2, 2008:

Updated to Tcl/Tk 8.5 and aMSN 0.97.

Fixed detection of KDE on Gutsy for skin selection.

Fixed checkout location for aMSN in cvs mode.
July 15, 2007:

Updated to Tcl/Tk 8.5a6 and aMSN 0.97RC1.

Added Gutsy support.
March 8, 2007:

Added an additional warning to the clean option.
February 22, 2007:

The script now uses its own sources.list to ensure the deb-src lines are available and to prevent any repository conflicts (uncomment fallback is now only used for unsupported distributions). This should permanently fix any repository problems.

There is now a "clean" command line option to clean out Tcl/Tk 8.5 and aMSN. Only the build dependency packages are left behind, which are from the official repositories so there's no problem.

The error-handling is more robust; it now catches SIGTERM and cleans temp files.
February 7, 2007:

The cvs and tarball versions have been merged into the same script. Source tarball is now the default installation method; there is a "cvs" command line option to use cvs/subversion trunk instead.

The deb-src lines in /etc/apt/sources.list are now uncommented during the script and restored afterwards. This should prevent any build-dep problems.

TLS is now configured automatically (finally!)

GuS-Arg's skins are now activated automatically (unless you are already using another skin.)




Upgrades

Note for distribution upgrades: This script will not interfere with a distribution upgrade in any way. It is safe to upgrade from Edgy to Feisty or from Feisty to Gutsy with this aMSN installation. After upgrading, your aMSN may revert to using jagged fonts; simply run this script again (don't uninstall aMSN first, just run the script) to get them back.




Notes


Tcl and Tk 8.5 will be compiled and installed into /usr/local; it will not replace your existing Tcl and Tk installation, so it should be much safer to use and easier to revert than other methods.

The Ubuntu and Kubuntu skins by GuS-Arg will be installed. If you do not have a skin already selected, the proper skin will be selected automatically. You can activate them manually via Account -> Select Skin.

This script accepts the command line option "clean". This will remove Tcl/Tk 8.5 and purge aMSN and all configuration files and customizations (skins, extensions, options, logs, etc). If you want to revert to the normal aMSN, execute the clean and then re-install amsn from the repositories.

This script can download the latest trunk of Tcl/Tk and aMSN through revision control systems instead of using source tarballs. Use it if you want to be on the bleeding edge or if the tarballs fail for some reason. To use it, add the "cvs" command line option to the script when running it.



Installation

Please read the entire Notes section above before installing. If you have already installed aMSN, do not uninstall it before starting.

Attached is the script. Save it in your home folder, then open a terminal window and type:

bash fixamsn.sh

You will be prompted for your root password, then the script will handle everything else. Don't be scared at the massive volume of text it will output. It should take about five to ten minutes to complete.

Please let me know if there are any errors or missing build dependencies. Enjoy!

Worked like a charm, first time! All I had to do after running the script (and entering passwords) was direct AMSN to my TLS folder.

AMSN looks great now. Many thanks!

Vuen

Ah yes, sorry about that. I'm not sure why it can't find TLS. I spoke to the aMSN developers and they mentioned that the pkgIndex.tcl fix the script performs should let it find it, but it didn't work for me either. It's probably just due to the fact that we're installing Tcl/Tk in /usr/local. Anyway I'll add that to the main post. Thanks.

Glad to hear.

I added error-checking throughout the script, so now if anything goes wrong, it will abort (leaving your original aMSN intact). I also added code to automatically clean up its temporary files.

Since aMSN 0.96 has been released, I updated the script to install it instead of 0.96rc1. If aMSN is asking you whether you want to upgrade, tell it no, and simply download and run this script again.

I messed up bigtime. First I installed it and everything worked fine, but I realized that I hadn't removed the old amsn installation so I got two aMSN's in my start menu. I sudo apt-get removed amsn and ran the script again. Now I got this:


Logging in to :pserver:anonymous@tcl.cvs.sourceforge.net:2401/cvsroot/tcl
Fatal error, aborting.

Do you know how to fix this? Thanks for your effort on making this script btw! :)

Hmm, that's very strange. The problem wasn't caused by not having removed aMSN; installing the old aMSN from the repository is the first thing the script does.

I'm also not sure why CVS login isn't working. It's unrelated to your original problem; it may simply be due to a connection error. I think you're just unlucky :(

Here's a version of the script which will download tarball snapshots of the various source codes instead of downloading them through revision control systems. This way you won't get the CVS login problem, and you might find it quite a bit faster than the original script. I may replace the original script with this one if more people have problems (and will certainly replace it when a beta release of Tcl/Tk 8.5 comes out).

To completely clean everything up, run it like this:


sudo apt-get remove --purge amsn
sudo aptitude unhold amsn
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get clean
chmod 755 fixamsna5.txt
./fixamsna5.txt

If there are still two aMSN options in your start menu, check what they point to; the correct command is "amsn" or "/usr/bin/amsn". If they both point to the same thing, then you can simply delete one.

A very nice script indeed.

I was having problems with the source.lists, but solved it by adding the src repos. Maybe you could add info about this in the first post, so that others "so dummy" as me get it done faster. ](*,)

lots of problems for me :(
really new to linux so please go easy on me lol :p

I had amsn installed through the add/remove programs thingy at first
then amsn told me to update
and redirected me to their site..
downloaded the latest version "amsn-0.96-2.tcl84.x86.package"
installed that with the how to..
used it for a while..

I think their installer is to blame for most of my problems
first of all the "sudo apt-get remove --purge amsn" didn't work..
I think because it wasn't in the list of add/remove programs cos I installed it with their installer..
so I tried to remove it with their installer too.. no clue whether or not that worked.. it asked for my password and then nothing.. when I try again the same thing happens :(

soo.. assuming everything would work out just fine I think I've wrecked all
I just continued with the how to..
"sudo rm -r /usr/share/amsn" no errors..
"sudo apt-get install amsn" no errors..
"cd Desktop" figured this one out myself *yay for me lol*
"chmod 755 fixamsn.txt" no errors..
so was happy and thought it was gonna work and stuff.. :rolleyes:
"./fixamsn.txt" NOOOOO :-s

my ubuntu is Dutch but it says this:

Reading state information... Klaar
E: Uw bronnenlijst (/etc/apt/sources.list) dient minstens 1 bron-URI te bevatten
ERROR: Could not install build dependencies.

I believe that's the error you need to help..
if you want any more information just ask and I'll try to figure it out :mrgreen:
please help :cry:

December 24th, 2006, 06:53 PM
Works until;

It seems the script is having trouble downloading the source code through Subversion. Try the snapshot version of the script here:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=1857928&postcount=14

and perform all the steps in that post to clean it first. Hopefully that will fix it. I'm not at my computer now but I'll soon replace the original version of the script with this one.

It seems your sources.list is missing the source repositories; same problem as mrastas was having above. In a terminal window, type "sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list", and uncomment all the lines that say deb-src in front of them. Then type "sudo apt-get update", then run the script.



Nice script! Works perfectly ;)
You could make another one that use the SVN version of aMSN.

I'm more of a fan of stable releases, but if you want to use the latest source you can just check out trunk instead of the latest tag. Open up the fixamsn.txt script in any text editor, and change this:


svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/amsn/tags/Release-0_96/amsn/ amsn || ! echo "ERROR: Could not download aMSN source code." || exit 1

to this:


svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/amsn/trunk/amsn/ amsn || ! echo "ERROR: Could not download aMSN source code." || exit 1

Then run the script again.

Just changed the script to compile the svn insted of the 0.96 stable.

If you want to do this:

find the section:


#amsn 0.96
svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/amsn/tags/Release-0_96/amsn/ amsn || ! echo "ERROR: Could not download aMSN source code." || exit 1

and replace with:


#amsn 0.97 SVN
svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/amsn/trunk/amsn amsn || ! echo "ERROR: Could not download aMSN source code." || exit 1

Save and run :)

PS: I've mentioned this script on my blog : www.formatds.org :)

That looks like there are errors in your apt repositories. Edit the file /etc/apt/sources.list as root, and see if you can find the problem; if not, post the contents here and I'll see if I can fix it.



http://www.uploadworld.nl/users/Nizzle/uploadworld_eroorrr.jpg

Unfortunately I don't recognize the language, but it seems it has a problem loading a plugin. Try deleting the folder ~/.amsn (Browse into your home, show hidden folders and delete .amsn). This will clear your aMSN settings and plugins; you might want to back it up first.



This is the first script/howto about amsn that worked flawlessly for my on x86_64

That's good to know, I hadn't tested it on 64-bit. Thanks :)

script works pretty well... im impressed...

3 questions..

1) getting alot of "tk has brought error" windows?
2) how do i get new tk out if i want to revert? or does it get yanked in one shot with the removal of amsn?
3) with tk now being in the "wrong" place, how do i make tkdnd work?

thanks.

2) how do i get new tk out if i want to revert? or does it get yanked in one shot with the removal of amsn?
3) with tk now being in the "wrong" place, how do i make tkdnd work?

1) Those happen because the version of the toolkit we're using is still in alpha testing, so it has bugs. Unfortunately there isn't a stable build out with anti-aliasing support yet, which is why we're stuck with these errors.

2) The new Tk is sitting in /usr/local, so it doesn't harm anything by being there. If you want to remove it anyway, you can remove the following files/folders:
/usr/local/bin/tclsh8.5
/usr/local/bin/wish8.5
/usr/local/include/tcl8.5/
/usr/local/lib/libtcl8.5.so
/usr/local/lib/tcl8.5/
/usr/local/lib/libtk8.5.so
/usr/local/lib/tk8.5/

3) I don't really know how you would get this to work with aMSN (or how it would be useful with aMSN), but any other Tk apps will still use the old toolkit (unless you've specifically compiled them for Tk 8.5). So if you had TkDND working before, it *should* still work with your old apps.

If it doesn't, I can take a look at it to figure out how to set it up.

Are there any leftover packages from compiling etc? I like to keep a nice clean system and I do this by using aptitude to insure that dependencies packages are remove etc.

I noticed during the output that apt-get installs some packages do these get removed again? If not could you please explain how I can or make/edit a script to do so.

Thanks

Ah, unfortunately there isn't really a quick way to do that. The script uses the build-dep command in apt to install all the packages required to compile a package from source. Once you're done compiling you can remove the dependencies, but the script doesn't keep track of what it installs so the only real way to remove them is to manually remove each package. You have to dig through your log files (/var/log/dpkg*) to see what it installed and remove each package manually.

Do you know if there is away to save the output from your script to a file? That would be very helpful for me to see what is happing.

By that way, thanks heap for this script in the first place! It makes amsn so much better.

I worked it out, You can use > to pipe output from a command to a file eg.


bash fixamsn.sh > amsn-installlog.txt

I then studied the file and found that you can clean up by doing:

sudo aptitude purge build-essential debhelper dpatch dpkg-dev g++ g++-4.1 html2text imlib11-dev libc6-dev libice-dev libjpeg62-dev libpng12-dev libsm-dev libstdc++6-4.1-dev libtiff4-dev libtiffxx0c2 libungif4-dev libx11-dev libxau-dev libxdmcp-dev libxext-dev libxt-dev linux-libc-dev tcl8.4-dev tk8.4-dev x-dev x11proto-core-dev x11proto-input-dev x11proto-kb-dev x11proto-xext-dev xtrans-dev zlib1g-dev libexpat1-dev libfontconfig1-dev libfreetype6-dev libxft-dev libxrender-dev pkg-config x11proto-render-dev

This was on Xubuntu Edgy Eft. and could and probably be different for others.

I'm still quite new to this but I was wondering. Does amsn have to be complied because it needs to be compiled to support the beta versions of Tcl/Tk. And Tcl/Tk needs to be compiled because it's a beta version and does not have a deb file?

In this case is it not possible to make a deb of amsn that supports the beta version of Tcl/Tk and make the package to have a dependency of the beta version of Tcl/Tk and not the normal Tcl/Tk. And then make a deb for the beta Tcl/Tk

Witch would be very cool because then there could be a source for the sources.list that contains those packages and then you could just do "sudo aptitude install amsn". And get your fixed version. Or maybe you would have to do something different like "sudo aptitude install fixamsn" I don't know!

Just wondering...

Yep, definitely. In fact, before I wrote this script there was a thread on here that provided debs for installing the beta Tcl/Tk with aMSN. That's partly what prompted me to write this script.

Installing debs from unsigned sources is a very bad idea, especially for something that has a lot of dependencies (like a graphical toolkit). First, you don't actually know what was compiled into the deb; the maintainer could have added some malicious code. Second, debs usually install in /usr (they're supposed to, anyway); replacing your Tcl/Tk/aMSN with that of a random deb will surely break all other Tcl/Tk applications on your computer, and could damage your installation when you try to dist-upgrade. Third, debs can often be quite large. This isn't noticeable to you, but to the package maintainer, providing debs for even a small program like aMSN and the toolkit amounts to nearly ten megs, which requires a large amount of bandwidth compared to a seven kilobyte script.

So yes, you can definitely make debs for this instead of compiling, but it's dangerous. Compiling is safe, easy, straightforward, and for a small toolkit like Tcl/Tk it takes only slightly more time than installing a deb. It's better this way.

Hello. I've tried to install this script, but when the installation was finishing, I've got the next error:

Ooh, that's a strange one. This may be a compilation bug in Alpha 5 that has since been fixed; you can try compiling it from CVS instead. Launch the script with the cvs command-line option, like this:

Could you help us, please?
Thank you!!

Edit: I have found amsn_0.96+dfsg1-0ubuntu2_i386.deb (but is is for Feisty Fawn) when I try to install it says: Dependency error: libc6.
So I think we need a script for older version 0.95 of amsn which is in Edgy Eft`s repository. Am I wrong?

Alright, I updated the script to use its own sources.list, so it should fix the problems you guys are having. Give it a try and let me know if it still doesn't work.

Also, I don't recommend using the cvs option right now; the current aMSN trunk seems to segfault while starting up.

Thank you a lot, man!!! Now it works withou ANY problems, I have got 0.95 aMSN installed :guitar:

BTW: you should change the installating information from " amsn 0.96 will be installed" to "amsn version from you repository will be installed".

I wonder you know how can I add amsn icon to the up-right corner of my window border. See the screenshot.

I just want to point out that you HAVE TO be very careful with the new "clean" option since it removes your ~/.amsn directory, with all your options and conversation logs.

BTW: you should change the installating information from " amsn 0.96 will be installed" to "amsn version from you repository will be installed".

Actually it does install aMSN 0.96. It downloads the 0.96 tarball from SourceForge regardless of what version is in the repository. If you click on Help->About, you should see aMSN 0.96 (or 0.97 if you used the cvs option).


I wonder you know how can I add amsn icon to the up-right corner of my window border. See the screenshot.

Unfortunately, that's the icon specified by the skin used. The GuS-Arg skins used are the nicest ones I could find; you can modify it to add the icon yourself, or you can look for other skins here:

http://amsn-project.net/skins.php


I just want to point out that you HAVE TO be very careful with the new "clean" option since it removes your ~/.amsn directory, with all your options and conversation logs.

This option is there to ensure that aMSN is completely clean, to remove any customizations or configuration options that may be preventing the install from taking place. The idea is to remove every trace of aMSN and Tcl/Tk 8.5 from your system.

I tried few more skins and there is still no icon :-/ I need to know where is defined which icon is shown there, then I can fix it.

Hi, and thanks for a really great script! I've used it several times with great success, however;
this time around a error occur:

"bash fixamsn.sh cvs" ends with:

Edit: Editet the script to use amsn svn instead of 0.96, and it worked like a charm.

It works great for me, but seems amsn is eating too much CPU. Every time the notifier pops up, or someone opens a chat window (including myself), or if I type big sentences, it freezes for some time, for every action. Worst when everything happens at the same time. I noticed my CPU usage goes 98%, something that does not happen if I install the latest autopackage from the website.
So, I tried to find those TCL/TK beta packages, provided by a guy named neto, I think... but the packages aren´t there anymore.
So, any clue where can I get those packages, and then install the autopackage file?
Thnx!

Hm, that's very strange. Are you running the stable version 0.96, or the latest source code trunk? If you ran the script with the cvs option, try running it without; the stable aMSN shouldn't have any memory leaks.




Why on earth does the clean option remove your ~/.amsn directory without asking the user first! I have now lost a handful of plugins, conversation logs!

Sorry about your lost data, but the notes section explaining the clean option clearly stated that it would clear all plugins, logs, and any other customized data. The script even explicitely kills any active sudo session to force you to re-enter your password so that you don't do it by accident. The clean option should only be used if aMSN doesn't work; it removes ~/.amsn to prevent damaged config files or plugins from crashing it.

I've added an additional warning to the script to try to prevent people from doing it without knowing the risks.

See `config.log' for more details.

Gcc 4.0 and 4.1 are already installed btw. The bin names (inside /usr/bin) are gcc-4.0 and gcc-4.1 respectively so i added a symbolic link of 4.1 named gcc to see what would happen :

Hi,

aptitude upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Reading extended state information
Initializing package states... Done
Building tag database... Done
The following packages have been kept back:
amsn
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.
Need to get 0B of archives. After unpacking 0B will be used.

Is there a way to make this better, so that i would have a clean output (ie. no kept backs or upgrades)?

Thanks

but it complains about doing TLS alllllllll over again - I was able to compile it that far and get stuck at this...

anyone know how to fix thios? I'm afraid the crap i did earlier trying to figure out .97b from the amsn forums might have messed with things...is there a way to simply remove anythhing of or related to tls and reinstall it all? Or does the script just resinstall it all anyways?

I have the same issue, how did you fix this?


Greetings,

I found your script through google and considering the comments it's promising, but I'm having some trouble.


Reading state information... Done
libpng12-dev is already the newest version.
libpng12-dev set to manual installed.
Note, selecting libjpeg62-dev instead of libjpeg-dev
libjpeg62-dev is already the newest version.
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libxft-dev: Depends: libxft2 (= 2.1.12-1) but 2.1.12-1+turner4 is to be installed
Depends: libfontconfig1-dev but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libfreetype6-dev but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages
ERROR: Could not install build dependencies.


I've tried most of what has been reccomended in the thread but to no avail...
Any suggestions?

EDIT: Found out that the packages from the subpixel font rendering fix I used ( http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=343670 ) are conflicting with packages that are being installed with the script.

EDIT2: FIXED! Fault caused by a "dirty" aptitude, cleaned it up and it worked like a charm!

Same problem here. I tried

sudo aptitude clean
But doesnt work. I use the packages from the subpixel font rendering fix.

Yes the TLS issue is due to changes in the new version of Tcl/Tk. This problem can be solved by dowloading the source and built it yourself. This should be added to the script I think.

So.. download and build with:

./configure --with-tcl=/usr/local/lib --with-ssl-dir=/usr/
make

Copy:

* libtls1.50.so
* pkgIndex.tcl
* tls.tcl

To:

~/.amsn/plugins/tls1.50

And everything should run smoothly again. This is only needed for the CVS version.

I asked this before, but nobody answer me =/
how do I change the sounds?
I mean I'd like to have the original aMSN's sounds instead of the windoze-MSN sounds
I liked more the first :confused:
other than that, the script worked flawless

To those who are having problems with the turner patch repo's and this script then there is an easy way around the problem...

Just remove the turner patch repos from /etc/apt/sources.list temporarily, do a sudo apt-get update, force the downgrade of libxft2, libfreetype6 and libcairo2 from the turner patch versions to the normal feisty versions (I was lazy and just used synaptic -> packages->force downgrade). Apply this script as per instructions, then add the turner patch repos again and sudo apt-get update and upgrade those three packages again =)

It's due to an issue with tcl/tk 8.5a6 and previous versions (see http://amsn-project.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3366 for references). You need to use the CVS version of tcl/tk to use the svn version of aMSN, or if you don't want to update tcl/tk (which anyway fixes some nasty memory leaks), you can use the svn version revision 8757.

Hi,

After a bit of research, it seems like the script has an «clean» option which works flawlessly. Just run
# ./script.sh clean (as root)

Thanks for a great script!

Thank you Vuen for the great script.

I have one suggestion: instead of creating the file ~/.amsn/tclconfig fo every user on the system I tried to change the /usr/bin/amsn using the following command:


sudo sed --in-place 's_set libtls ""_set libtls "/usr/lib/tls1.50"_' /usr/bin/amsn

It worked for me and I think this maybe useful in multiuser system. Just thought to tell you if you want to test it and include it in your script.

when I wanna do those voice clips, it doesn't work 'cuz I need some kind of Snack-library or something.. where can I get that, how can I get it, and how do I install it


I thank you very muts ;)



edit; another little problem.. pc's quite slow now.. and so is amsn.. Is this a "Reboot-and-problem-solved-problem" or do I have to use terminals... or is this just a bug, which can only be solved by destroying my pc (A)

https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/amsn/trunk/amsn/ is not working, therefore the cvs install won't work.

If you want the script to work with cvs replace the line 'svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/amsn/trunk/amsn/ amsn || error_exit "Could not download aMSN source code."' with

'svn co https://amsn.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/amsn/trunk/amsn/ amsn || error_exit "Could not download aMSN source code."'

svn: PROPFIND of '/svn...sn/trunk/amsn': 405 Method Not Allowed (https://amsn.svn.sourceforge.net)

Update: changed the line to read instead
svn co https://amsn.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/amsn/trunk/amsn// || error_exit "Could not download aMSN source code." worked then.

One thing tho, I've been running this new Amsn now for a while and just for fun I took a look at the System monitor. Amsn took up approx. 500MB memory.
Memory hog? Memory leak? Anyone familiar with this?

The script ran without problems. However when I start aMSN all fonts are very tiny. In fact it is not possible to see anything, it's like they are 1 px high or something.

Desperately needing some tips on this so my daughter stop nagging about windoze msn....

After a lot of searching and finding nothing, I resorted to trying to compile TCL manually to see what the problem might be. In the end, I discovered that this error occurred if configure was run with --enable-64bit. I removed this option from fixamsn.sh and then it all installed fine and I'm now running the latest amsn that this script was meant to install.

Not sure why this happened, as the script is supposed to work with either 32 or 64-bit. I'm running a 64-bit processor (Athlon 64 X2 3800) but with 32-bit Feisty (i386, NOT amd64). Not sure if anyone else has run into this problem, but I thought I'd report my experience.

The latest version of the script does not work; in line 153, you should replace:


svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/amsn/trunk/amsn/ amsn || error_exit "Could not download aMSN source code."

with


svn co https://amsn.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/amsn/trunk/amsn/ amsn || error_exit "Could not download aMSN source code."

however, I still have some issues... on starting the AMSN now... the CPU will be 100% for like 5 minutes until AMSN is fully loaded.... this doesnt happened when I was using the older version in repository...

Another problem is that i lost sound AGAIN... aplay doesnt work, and the snack library i installed 2 days ago failed too... :(:(:(

First I would like to thank you for the script. I had installed amsn through apt previously and had eventually removed it because I thought it would be too much trouble to fix all of its asthetic problems. Still, amsn has the best support for the MSN network I know of so when I saw this script I decided to try again. This script helped me to get a working and deicent looking program. This is probably better than I could have done after hours of tweaking - but I'm afraid I'm only about 99% satisfied.

There is only one problem I have come across that I have not been able to figure out so I am looking to the forums. I tried to install a couple of skins and plugins to complete the package look and feel I am looking for. I downloaded them from amsn-project.net and put them into the appropriate folder. Skins work perfectly as they should, but plugins only work until I close the program. When I restart the program I have to manually reload the plugins.

I assume that by 'loading' the plugins I am just configuring a text file or one of the xml files but I have not for the life of me been able to figure out where I need to look. Every other setting and option will keep its status after I close the program so the issue applies only to loading new plugins. Can someone help me? Thanks.



ps. While trying to load the chameleon plugin I get this error
Plugins System: Can't initialize plugin:init procedure caused an internal error

While this does bother me some I can live without it.

I modified the script to install the svn because the server in the script, simply don´t response.

right click the scrip and use the ¨open with text editor¨

Search this line in the script:


#amsn trunk
svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/amsn/trunk/amsn/ amsn || error_exit "Could not download aMSN source code."

and change it to this:


#amsn trunk
svn co https://amsn.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/amsn/trunk/amsn/ amsn || error_exit "Could not download aMSN source code."
else

Save change, and use the script again, now you can install the SVN version without problem, maybe the server need to accept the certificate, I use the permanent option.

I hope this help.

This solved my problems (from Automatix forum (http://www.getautomatix.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=1182"")):


wget http://internap.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/amsn/tls-1.5.0-linux-x86.tar.gz

The "cvs" option does not work properly at the moment. To fix it, find:


svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/amsn/trunk/amsn/ amsn || error_exit "Could not download aMSN source code."


And replace it with:


svn co https://amsn.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/amsn/trunk/amsn/ amsn || error_exit "Could not download aMSN source code."

That should fix it :)

I wouldn' t go back, but if I can't solve this problem with libsnack I will probably look for another script, or maybe clean everything up and run this script again.. So my guess after reading the notes in post #1 is that I need to run something like:


sudo clean amsn

or:


sudo make clean amsn

to uninstall, right?

I found the way to uninstall:

That's actually a problem with the sourceforge server, not with anything the script is doing wrong.

I've had a few problems with the sourceforge servers myself at different points, you kind of just have to keep trying and hope they bring their servers back up. You can always manually edit the script and change the server it's connecting to if you can find the url of another sourceforge mirror.

Getting the following error when launching aMSN?


You can't load
TkCximage, this is needed to run aMSN. Please compile amsn first, instructions on
how to compile are located in the file INSTALL


Then you may need to do this:


sudo ln -sf /usr/local/bin/tclsh8.4 /usr/local/bin/tclsh
sudo ln -sf /usr/local/bin/wish8.4 /usr/local/bin/wish

Replace 8.4 with 8.5 if you have Tcl/Tk ver. 8.5. Check what you have with


ls -l /usr/local/bin/tclsh*
ls -l /usr/local/bin/wish*

I also had some problems with conflicting amsn launch scripts in different bin folders, but that may not apply to you.

You need to figure out which of the dependencies you have and which need to be installed.

In a terminal run:

The result will show you the dependencies of the package you're trying to install.

sudo apt-get install missingpackages

And you should be ready. Hope that helps.

Thanks a lot for the script - after over 2 years of trouble I finally have my final issue with aMSN solved! :-D

The first time I ran the script, I did get a weird error message about Python and 8.4 something or other not yet being configured, which I suspect was caused by an aborted installation of PyChess last week. So I uninstalled 8.4 and also aMSN for good measure, and second time around everything worked like a dream! :-D

Hi, Just wanted to make 100% sure before I try this.
I've just today installed aMSN 0.97 from the GetDeb site.

All it's all working fine (apart from horrid fonts)

Should I use your script on page 1 of this LONG Thread.
Or should I use the one you posted in Posting # 195 of this thread?

Don't want to screw things up by running the wrong version?

Oh and I'm using Ubuntu 7.1 gutsy.

Thanks.

============ EDIT==============

Well, I could not bare to wait any longer, so ran your script (as instructed) in your 1st post.

Superb, Excellent, Fantastic.

All ran through perfectly without any glitches or errors.

I was holding my breath watching the mountains of text and commands going by. Thinking to myself, this looks like Nuclear Physics to just fix a Pimple!
But, the result was well worth it.

aMSN looks So Much Better now.

Many thanks, and well done :)

last time i tried to install your script i had this problem...(and people,not only me)...
it tells me
E: Build-Depends εξαρτήσεις για το amsn δεν ικανοποιούνται επειδή το πακέτο tk8.5-dev δεν βρέθηκε
ERROR: Could not install build dependencies.
some of these words are greek...
it tells me that it cannot find tk8.5-dev packet and it stops the installation...

Download Tk8.5-dev from here (http://in.solit.us/archives/show/118166).

Then navigate to the directory where you downloaded it - eg Desktop and proceed as follows:

cd ~/Desktop
sudo dpkg -i package-name.deb

This will install tk8.5-dev on your system. Run the script normally afterwards & you should be good to go..

Okay, I'm not too sure what's the mess up, but from the messages you're getting, you gotta install Tcl8.5 and Tk8.5 first before running the script. I know it's not supposed to go that way, but give it a try. It might work out for you.

Get the Tcl8.5 (http://in.solit.us/archives/download/114664), Tk8.5 (http://in.solit.us/archives/show/113979)and Tcltls8.5 (http://in.solit.us/archives/show/115681) deb packages and install them in that particular order.

Then try & run the script again..

i've solved installing Tcl 8.5, Tk 8.5 & Tls 1.5.0 and amsn from http://in.solit.us/users/public/patrickfromspain

I suppose there's a problem in tk8.5 svn. May be in few days the script will work again

Tcl 8.5 updated in my box, along with amsn!
Is this because of the script? I ran ./fixamsn.sh clean and then installed the amsn from the repos and it's all nice!

Could someone confirm that the default is now always anti-aliased?
