Re: Trying (and failing) to be able to ./configure for gnome-games...

Thanks, that's trivial and that fixed it!

[It's sad that the msg states that one MUST install (sources) from CVS,
when it really means what you said.  Hopefully, that error-msg could
get changed.  But, I won't hold my breath.]

It's also sad that when I post to this list, I get an email saying that
I'm spamming and that I'm not allowed to post, yet my post(s)
are, in reality, getting thru.  (SIGH.)

Trying to communicate in Gnome is a bit 'back in the darker ages'
in my folks could benefit immensely if you had a 'forum'.
[I've never liked email-lists, and I guess the present behavior I'm
seeing is just another reason why.]  Hopefully, this fix will be the
last help I'll need. 

So, again, thanks for that, Zhang!

You need to install the 'gnome-common' package from you distribution's
repository. (Or compile and install it if you prefer)

The detail of the package can be different per the distribution you use,
e.g. for ubuntu, it's .

This is how it fails (in,

which means you have to install the program ''. It's
usually /usr/bin/ and comes from gnome-common package.
