How to Enable Drag and Drop capabilities to aMSN
aMSN has features not present in MSN Messenger. Users can set alarms, are able to see others who have removed them from their contact list, and are able to open many profiles at once. It is also very customizable, with extensions and themes available at the main site. aMSN also allows functions not available in the Macintosh version of MSN Messenger, such as webcam support, and the "nudge" feature.
aMSN is available for any system that supports Tcl/Tk 8.4 or higher. This includes Microsoft Windows, Macintosh and any UNIX variant including Linux.
You need the tkdnd binaries, you get them from TkDND developers cvs server with the following commands
$cvs -z3 -d:pserver:[email protected]:/cvsroot/tkdnd login
(Hit enter, no password needed)
$cvs -z3 -d:pserver:[email protected]:/cvsroot/tkdnd co -P tkdnd/libThen
you need to make a tkdnd in the amsn directory using this command
(mine was in /usr/share/amsn)
Finally you need to copy over the files from the cvsserver to the directory you just made using this command
$cp tkdnd/lib/*tcl $AMSNDIR/utils/tkdnd/
$cp tkdnd/lib/Linux/libtkdnd1.0.so $AMSNDIR/utils/tkdnd/
Restart aMSN and you can enjoy dragging files to the conversation windows to send them.
