    Yo fellows.. i m very happy today.. i ve been waiting for the new release of gaim for a long time, tough it isnt released yet, i just compiled the cvs version, and its great, so as i m a good guy and now i m in a good mood i m writing this quick guide to help you install gaim 2.0 from cvs, or if your lazy just got my .deb.

    Screenshot:


    First of all, remove your gaim 1.5:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove gaim
    Dont mind about the ubuntu-desktop, kubuntu-desktop, or kubuntu-desktop, they are just meta packages.

    if you want to use MSN, do this:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libgnutls11-dev
    I dont know ALL the dependencies, so if you miss something, post here so we can find out what is missing, i had everything except the libgnutls above.

    If you are lazy, just grab the deb:

    http://xgn.com.br/fabio/gaim_2.0.0cvs2-1_i386.deb

    if you want to compile yourself, here we go:

    ps: Ripped from: http://gaim.sourceforge.net/downloads.php

    Step 1. Check out the source

    Run the following commands in a directory that you have write access to (such as your home directory):

    Code:
    cvs -d ':pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/gaim' login
    (Just hit enter for the password)
    cvs -z3 -d ':pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/gaim' checkout gaim
    You should see it listing all the source files.

    Step 2. Build again

    Once you've checked gaim out of CVS, run the follwing commands:

    Code:
    cd gaim
    sh autogen.sh
    ./configure --enable-gnutls=yes
    If you see any errors here, you haven't installed everything you need. autogen.sh will also run ./configure for you once it's created, if it's created successfully. If you see any errors related to GLib or GTK, you haven't installed the devel packages.

    Now, type:

    Code:
    make
    sudo make install
    Tip: if you want to create a deb and install it instead of the make install, dont type sudo make install, instead type this:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install checkinstall
    The type:

    Code:
    sudo checkinstall
    it you ask you to fill some information, fill them out, and it will install the deb.

    Now some tips by bored2k:

    If you want to enable sounds in gaim, do this:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install esound-clients
    Now in the sound preferences of you gaim, chose metod: command, and fill the command field with: esdplay %s

    Sugestions by foxy123:

    If you want sound support, you need libao:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libao-dev
    If you need spellchecking support, you need libgtkspell:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libgtkspell-dev
    Enjoy

    libgnutls10-dev wants to remove a lot of KDE dev packages which are used to build amarok from svn

    OK, several suggestions:

    1.
    if you want to use MSN, do this:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libgnutls10-dev
    Ubuntu official package is libgnutls11, you do not need 10. So do
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libgnutls11-dev
    2. If you want sound support, you need libao:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libao-dev
    3. If you need spellchecking support, you need libgtkspell:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libgtkspell-dev

    You should always (re-)run autogen.sh when you first get or later update something from cvs (or equivalent). Not doing that can cause problems when compiling.

    yes, you need. also you do not need ./configure, just put all options after ./autogen.sh like:

    Code:
    ./autogen.sh --enable-gnutls=yes
