In the past the compilation has been challenging, but usually do-able.
I was inspired, after reading this missive, to go and give it a go -- and
found that the last source bundle I had was from the first half of this
year. Consequently I had big hopes for the oct-2004 tarball.
It compiled (once I installed the libgtk1 stuff (the libgtk2 stuff isn't
new enough!, and weirdly doesn't include gtk-config in the Debian
packages)). Anyhoo .. when it runs it gives a few lines of output, and
complains about not being able to find the splash.png file, and then
segfaults. Running strace over it shows that it gets a few dozen
errors about files not existing .. and they're all pathed off root, as
per this line :
stat64("/data/splash.png", 0xbffff540) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
A bunch of .xrc files .. help, about, preview_frame .. etc.
No wonder it can't find them in the / or /data/ directories.
It just leaves you wondering about what kind of weird and/or unique
environment the authors managed to get this thing compiled in.
I've tried changing some of the ./configure parameters, but nothing makes
any difference, and indeed none of the options to it look encouraging.
Once I get past this .. I'll work on the other suggestions you gave. ;)
