I am running simplymepis (deb/ubuntu/whatever variant) on a pretty recent PC - Celeron 3.3, nvidia 8500GT card, 2 gig of memory etc. So presumably that is OK
I downloaded the file XnView-x86-unknown-linux2.x-static-fc4.tgz file. Not too sure about this because i figure fc4 stands for Fedora Core 4, but what the hell - it was the only non rpm file available.
I untarred it to its own folder, changed to that folder, chmodded the install file and then ran ./install which is all i could think of:

Given the error messages I thought the "Done!" was a bit optimistic but just in case I tried to run xnview and got a tiny gui which I could hardly read and which crashed if i tried to do anything - browse for a file, open a file etc.:
All I want to do is open ONE ai file I need to work on for a logo for a friend's website. I have tried about five other programs but none of them can open it. Seems an awful waste of nearly a whole day just to open and modify one file but that's linux for you (<g>)

Can anyone help please??
