[Tux4kids-discuss] Fwd: Problem Installing Tuxpaint

I can't send you a link to the development library as you need to  
install it through synaptic.

Look for librsvg-dev first. Then libsvg-cairo-dev.

You need to make sure you reply to the mailing list and not just to  
me. Normally you have to select reply to all. Mailing lists that do  
this are very annoying but very common in free software. There are  
always flame wars when you try and raise it :(

Can you run the pre compiled version of tuxtype on your hardware or do  
you get the same error?
