Thanks for your help, I am trying to install Apollon. I still can't get
giFT to work though. I did everything in the instructions. (on your link)
When I open a console and type "giftd" I get:
[rob@localhost rob]$ giftd
*** GIFT-FATAL: unable to start 'OpenFT', no idea why (hopefully the
protocol provided some info)
*** Often times more information can be found in the log file or with the -v
command line switch.
I have not a clue, I guess thats obvious.
