I’m one of those abnormal people not used to compiling programs. Still, I want that sexy translucent menus and whatnot. So I decided to apply that translucency patch to the 2.5.16 code. Everything seemed to work fine until make install when I get this:
test -z "/usr/local/bin" || mkdir -p -- . "/usr/local/bin" /usr/bin/install -c 'fvwm' '/usr/local/bin/fvwm' test -z "/usr/local/share/fvwm" || mkdir -p -- . "/usr/local/share/fvwm" /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 'ConfigFvwmDefaults' '/usr/local/share/fvwm/ConfigFvwmDefaults' /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 'ConfigFvwmSetup' '/usr/local/share/fvwm/ConfigFvwmSetup' ln: creating symbolic link `/usr/local/man/man1/fvwm2.1' to `fvwm.1': No such file or directory Minor warning: /usr/local/man/man1/fvwm2.1 symlink was not created test -z "/usr/local/man/man1" || mkdir -p -- . "/usr/local/man/man1" mkdir: cannot create directory `/usr/local/man': File exists make: *** [install-man1] Error 1 make: Leaving directory `/home/mandolin/fvwm-2.5.16/fvwm' make: *** [install-am] Error 2 make: Leaving directory `/home/mandolin/fvwm-2.5.16/fvwm' make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
Even so, fvwm and fvwm2 still get installed into /usr/local/bin and Fvwm does start, and the translucent menus do work (yay!), but unfortunately the Fvwm modules aren’t there (or aren’t working). I need those modules Any ideas what’s missing or what I’m doing wrong?
Edit: I’m using Debian unstable and xorg 6.9, if that helps.
