thank you for sticking with it.

I *require* "Add Glow" in the work that I do with The GIMP. I have no choice but to stick with it. :)

try editing this script to use /opt/gnome instead of /usr/local :


then type "source gimpenv" before "perl Makefile.PL"


That didn't really seem necessary. AFAICT, it simply added "/opt/gnome/lib/pkgconfig" to my $PKG_CONFIG_PATH, "/opt/gnome/bin" to my $PATH, and "opt/gnome/lib" to my $LD_LIBRARY_PATH - all of which already contained those paths as you can see below.

btw, you seem to have a handle on some *nix things that i don't.

Really?  Hmmm...  That makes me feel good, I guess. :)

I still fumble around when trying to use echo.

I really only use it whenever I want to see the contents of my $PATH variable.

it is one of the problems that happens when you get things working and they 
work so well for so long.

again, thank you for your persistence.

You're welcome, I suppose.  Thanks for yours as well.

Honestly, though, I don't feel, though, that I'm doing anything out of the ordinary whenever I run into this kind of trouble with something on my system.

BTW, nothing improved. :)
