There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.

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:
Do you know how to fix this? Thanks for your effort on making this script btw!Code:Logging in to :pserver:email@example.com:2401/cvsroot/tcl Fatal error, aborting. anoncvs_tcl: no such system user ERROR: Could not download Tcl source code. geo@box:~/$
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:
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.Code: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

Thanks a lot Vuen! Worked perfectly now
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.

Thank you for making this script. You're a rock star!
For anyone else a tad blind (like me) the skins are actually findable from
Account -> skins.
It's easier than ever!
Nice script! Works perfectly
You could make another one that use the SVN version of aMSN.
svn: REPORT request failed on '/svnroot/amsn/!svn/vcc/default'
svn: REPORT of '/svnroot/amsn/!svn/vcc/default': Could not read response body: Secure connection truncated (https://svn.sourceforge.net)
ERROR: Could not download aMSN source code.
lots of problems for me
really new to linux so please go easy on me lol
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..
my ubuntu is Dutch but it says this:
I believe that's the error you need to help..Code:Reading state information... Klaar E: Uw bronnenlijst (/etc/apt/sources.list) dient minstens 1 bron-URI te bevatten ERROR: Could not install build dependencies.
if you want any more information just ask and I'll try to figure it out
