I'm attempting to install XFCE from the file "xfce4-4.4RC2-installer.run", I execute this file and I'm presented with a nice intuitive GUI, which tells me I need certain Perl modules to make this work: URI:Escape, URI:file and URI:URL. It suggests to "Install from CPAN" with a button, I tried this -- which fails.
Next I downloaded the file "http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/ … .35.tar.gz" from CPAN manually, extracted this and installed the files into "/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/URI/", this solved the missing "URI:Escape", but none of the others, despite the other required files "file.pm" and "URL.pm" existing in the same directory. I also tried to copy all files to "/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/" as I'm not sure exactly where the XFCE-installer is looking, I also attempted to put them into "/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.4" and "/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/URI/". Next I tried to change extensions from .pm to .pl on the files in question.
I have read through the documentation in search for any help, I've also searched the forum. Could anyone give specific help on this issue?
Thanks in advance.
Maybe your distribution has the perl-uri package (AFAIK this is a common perl module).
I use Slackware 11.0.0.
I selected to install everything, shouldn't this be installed then if it was present?
Could I have a list over which exact files are needed if anyone has this information?
Full path with exact filename would be really helpful.
This is not an offical list, and this for (X)(K)(U)buntu.
I install a server, X-window system, then these to build XFCE.
