I have some problems when i was trying to install xforms on cygwin(latest
version 1.5.4 with XFREE86). First I unzipped the xforms.1.0.tar file. then
typed xmkmf -a. This command went through well. After that when i typed
'make' the program stops and gives this error message:
make: *** No rule to make target `../lib/libforms.a', needed by `fd2ps.exe'.
make: Leaving directory `/usr/x11r6/xforms-1.0/fd2ps'
make: *** [all] Error 2
I have already installed the xpm library. Is it a problem due to bad xpm
installation? I tried installing the binary version bxforms.089. Again the
demos don't run and it gives an fl_initialise error (unable to open).
Can someone please tell me the steps for installing xforms on cygwin and
making the demos work.
