I'm trying to install Listen in FC5 but when I run make I get the following message:

[root@localhost listen-0.3.1]# make
Checking for Python... /usr/bin/python
Checking Python version: 2.4
Checking for PyGTK >= 2.6: found
Checking for gnome.ui; found
Checking for egg.trayicon:
not found
Listen require gnome-python-extras.
(http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/gnome-python-extras)
make: *** [check] Error 1

I have gnome-python2-extras installed but it doesn't seem to work. I've tried this package in Ubuntu and it's like amarok for gnome, and I thought it showed a lot of promise. Any ideas anyone? The Listen website is here:

No-one tried this?

I'm guessing you'll need to
yum install gnome-python2-libegg before install.


yum list gnome-python* for others to try if that doesn't work.

Thanks for the reply Jman. That helped but I seem to be coming up against dependency after dependency. The documentation for this package is poor so this could take a while. Will let you know if I manage to get it working.

update: compiling it from source actually turned out to be straight-forward. and the player seems really nice, with support for last.fm scrobling, automatic cover art look-up and loads of other nifty features. i was kind of looking for a good amarok alternative in gnome and this just might be it..

I made a rpms for listen. You can find them there: http://forum.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=117070&page=5&pp=20

cool, thanks for the pointer, i'll give it a shot, maybe the rpm install will be a bit more stable than my own source compiled version which constantly keeps freezing up.. :)
