Better looking amsn - antialiasing

The new versions of tcl/tk 8.5 allows better antialiasing:

[with(right) and without(left) antialiasing]

How to


  1. First, go to Synaptic and uninstall all versions of tcl and tk..
  2. Now compile tcl and tk - unrar downloaded files and enter the directory: ‘unix, then:
    $ sudo ./configure && sudo make && sudo make install
  3. Compile amsn: unrar downloaded source...:
    $ ./configure --prefix=/usr --with-tcl=/usr/local/lib --with-tk=/usr/local/lib
    $ sudo make && sudo make install

  • If the error: “/usr/local/bin/amsn: line 3: exec: wish: not found” appears, type:
    $ sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/wish8.5 /usr/local/bin/wish
