I already posted this to the bug reports, but wanted to bring it up here to see if there was anyone else experiencing this problem, or if anyone had a fix:
On trying to run amaya from xfce terminal, I get the following error:
System wide unix-thot.rc not found at /config/unix-thot.rc
missing environment variable THOTDIR
WARNING: cannot open file en-libdialogue
cannot find messages table
Then I'm just left at back at the prompt.
I'm running Arch Linux with the default 2.6.3 kernel in xfce4. P4 2400, 1 Gig RAM, Geforce 5200.
I still can't get the package to work, and now this problem has had it's severity reduced to "very low" without so much as a comment as to why.
I don't really think that's the way it should be.
