hi, i downloaded two days ago gngeo, a neo-geo emulator for linux, with urpmi on my mandrake machine . then i downloaded a graphical user interface for it, named xgngeo with urpmi again.
after the download was finished, a new icon was added in my menu automaticly, great. but when i try to start it, it launches on my taskbar with a little waiting logo, so i wait...and wait, and wait after a time, it closes for no reason.
never been able to see the gui and i was wondering why. it can't be because of dependences, because urpmi control and download everything needed. The program is programmed in python and use the gtk and pygtk library.
i had the same problem with firefox on my last instalation, it wouldn't work but i re-installed mandrake for another reason , i tried firefox again and strangly it worked. Maybe it was because i haven't installed the same packages in the installation and that i couldn't use urpmi at the time because it wasn't properly configured.
anyway, never had this same anoying problem with other programs? how did you corrected it?
oh and yeah, i tried to checkedthe menu edtitor in the mandrake control center to see if there was something wrong, but everything seems to be okay. When i try to launch it by his installation path (/usr/bin/xgngeo.py) . kwrite (a text editor) starts... pretty frustating.
