Hello

There is a new ppa for amsn svn,
https://launchpad.net/~amsn-daily/+archive/ppa

So, normally, you just have to add

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/amsn-daily/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

or

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/amsn-daily/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main

in your sources.list and add the key as explain on the launchpad

Then ....

sudo apt-get install amsn

That's all (we hope) Smiley
It will install libnice 0.0.6 and farsight 0.0.7 too as dependencies

Many Thanks to Stemp for this repository
And please tell us if anything is missing

Hope it could help

Thank you for your efforts!  Smiley Though you should add the old Farsight 0.0.4 as a dependency. Here's what the A/V wiki sais about it:

Code:
9 - farsight2 - 0.0.4 (farsight2 0.0.5 and 0.0.6 are known not to work properly with aMSN right now, so please use the 0.0.4 version only for now)

Thanks for this
Do you think that it's the same problem with farsight 0.0.7 ?

Hi,
Thanks, great stuff there! Smiley I'm sure it will be useful!
About farsight, the wiki needs some updating, but 0.0.7 should work just fine! But dont upgrade to 0.0.8 yet!

Thanks for this, I was hoping it would help me get farsight working. However, I get this error:

Hello,

I'm not sure to be able to help you  Sad
if you compiled it before, have you clean all your install?


In the wiki it'said
Quote
In order to make an Audio Call in aMSN, you will need to have the following dependencies installed on your system :
1 - glib 2.16 or newer
2 - gstreamer 0.10.20 or newer
3 - gst-plugins-base 0.10.20 or newer
4 - gst-plugins-good 0.10.7 or newer
5 - gst-plugins-bad 0.10.6 or newer
7 - gst-plugins-farsight - 0.12.9 or newer

Is it ok for you?

actually I updated the wiki now with the new needed versions...
Kreuger: make sure you compiled it correctly because there's just no way that symbol can't be found if you linked it with farsight2!

Hi,
I installed amsn from the ppa repository but I get this error having to do with farsight:

Code:
Farsight : Preparing
Farsight Prepare error : couldn't load file "utils/farsight/tcl_farsight.so": utils/farsight/tcl_farsight.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32


I didn`t have farsight installed before nor I did any attempt to compile it from svn on my own in the past...

I`m using kubuntu jaunty.
Any clue?

Hello,

Are you using a 64 bits system? Maybe there is a problem with it

All I did was install the debs from the repo so it did everything itself, I would assume.

Kreuger: what is your version of ubuntu?

I imagine that you added the repo in your source.list then apt-get update and then apt-get install amsn


could you try an
Code:
sudo apt-get autoremove --purge amsn


and then
Code:
sudo apt-get install amsn

It's very strange because we have no problem with jaunty

Normally with a
sudo apt-get autoremove --purge amsn

It didn't remove the preferences
