HI Kevin

not sure if this applies to you or not, but i have my libXpm in
/usr/lib/X11R6 but then again I used that lib dir when i
compiled afterstep.
you may also want to consider /usr/lib/X11R5

Subject: AfterStep Startup Error

:I am very new to AfterStep. I am on HP-UX 10.20 and I have some problems
:with the libXpm library.
:Rather than go through compiling everything, I simply download AfterStep
:(version 1.6.0) from the HP-UX porting archive. I have already compiled
:the JPEG, PNG, and libXpm libraries and installed them.
:The error I get is when I go to run AfterStep, the screen turns white
:(kinda). I get a message about 8 bps. Then it hangs. I have to log into
:another workstation, then log into my workstation and kill the AfterStep
:process. At that time I can see the root window and the error is that I
:need to install libXpm v 4.0 or greater.
:Where is it looking for the libraries? I have them installed in /usr/lib
:and I am using libXPM v4.7.
:Any help would be welcomed.
