Programs opening and then closing immediately.

Two recently installed programs, Gnome Hearts (a very addictive card game) and Miro seemed to install ok but on trying to use them they close of their own accord a few seconds after opening. What's going on and can it be fixed? :?

Hi

There is a bug in Gnome -hearts under Ubuntu, however it works
if you follow the instructions in this thread:

viewtopic.php?f=47&t=6744&p=44260&hilit=Gnome+Hearts&sid=89fa3d827f075b1fa464050e9f4a7754#p44260

Install build-essential before trying to compile

I "think" there is also instructions for installing Miro correctly on this forum-check the search

Miro cured! I'll tackle Hearts when I'm a bit more alert. Thanks very much. :D
