Hallo Jens,

  libungif should be installed in the system. If installed in the proper
(often default paths are all right) then the Prima Makefile configuration
will find it.

  On a SuSE system libungif resides in /usr/bin/

# ll /usr/bin/*gif*

  By default (i.e. when you compile it from source) the default is set
to /usr/local/bin/ I think, which is also fine if that path is in
the /etc/ file.

  In other words, if libungif is properly installed then Prima will find it.

  If not, get it from source and compile it or get it from a package method
for your distro and install it. If you compile it from source, be sure to do
a 'ldconfig' after the 'make install'.
