Porting X windows code from Unix to Linux...

Hi,

I have a small dialog box being displayed from C code on Unix using Xwindows/Xmotif. When the same code is compiled on Linux, I get the following messages:

prog.c: Xm/Form.h: No such file or directory
prog.c: Xm/SelectionB.h: No such file or directory
prog.c: Xm/Separator.h: No such file or directory
...
...

It shows that these X motif header files are not found on the Linux system but how can I have them installed or located?

Thanks in advance!

Those files are from the XWindows environment. You can either install Linux fully on the system (including XWindows and all of the include files / development tools), or try to copy the header-files from the Unix machine to the Linux machine. You might need additional header / source - files.

They do not need to be installed!

Regards,
CJ
