    cannot install f-prot with klik

    i get the error message:

    "could not create symlink from /xfp to /home/jMon/f-prot/usr"
    Please create a symlink from /xfp to ~/f-prot/usr then it should work. Probably you are not running from Live CD, this is why klik wasn't able to do that for you. You need to do:
    Code:
    su
    ln -s ~/f-prot/usr /xfp
    This didn't work for me. I got the same error message. Other klik installs worked, Firefox for example.

    Please create the mentioned symlink by hand and please also edit your wrapper file: remove the part where the symlink is created and also the part (at the end) where it is deleted.

    Then it runs also with non-root privileges.

    Alternatively, simply add your user to the "sudoers" file or try with the Live CD.

    I would rather not do it this way, but I cannot make sense of your other instructions... I've got a lot to learn. Thank you very much.
