Thanks for the quick reply;

The file permissions are ok. All the files are there, as they should be.

BUT, I actually solved the problem based on a hint from my friend.. It seems
I was missing some Tcl/Tk-header files. So it just compiled nicely after
installing a few packages.

However, I now have another problem but I'll probably find a solution tuo
that one by browsing the mail archives. It seems that the menus in xleap are
not working, they do appear correctly, but they don't do anything :)


It is out choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
