I have just switched to linux mint and really like the interface much better then ubuntu (which i was only on for a week). I however have 2 main issues I have not been able to resolve.
1) I am trying to compile the pidgin sipe plugin for OCS access to work. I had it working in ubuntu. I used the following directions:

In mint however when I run the make command this is what I get
Making all in src

I cannot figure out what I did wrong or different then the ubuntu installs. Any help would be much appreciated.
2) The other problem I have never been able to resolve and that is getting the juniper network VPN client to work. I have tried many peoples combinations but cannot get anything to work. I always get RPM query for SSL failed. I have actually set a root password and this did not seem to help.
Sorry for such a long first post but I am anxious to get rid of windows for good.
