Installing Linux YM client with webcam support

Finally we have come to the last part of this series (installing gyachE).

Before you read on, be sure that you have followed the instructions on my two previous posts ( 1 and 2).

If you did, then we are ready.

1. Open the Linux Terminal

2. Login as root by typing
$ sudo -s
then provide the password when asked

3. go to / directory by typing
# cd /

4. list the two gyachE files we have placed there
# ls

5. You should see these two files:


6. Lets install the main program. Type :

# tar xjf gyach-enhanced_pyvoice-binary-1.0.7-i586.tar.bz2

This would automatically put all the files needed by gyachE in their respective directories.

7. Install the webcam plugin. Type:

# tar xjf gyachE-Webcam-Utilities-0.4-i586.tar.bz2

Run gyachE:
# gyach

If you encounter any dependency problems just follow the 10-12-2005 post then try to run gyachE again.

On a later post we will talk about the tar command.

Thanks for a very instructive set of forums for the newbies like my self. I tried the steps you said and when I run the application I get

"gyach: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

I know it is telling me it cannot find a directory but what is it on about? I am installing to ubuntu amd64.

I am a Windows support engineer but this Linux stuff is still very new to me.Is there a file structure difference between AMD64 and 32 bit Ubuntu installs?
