synfig not running properly
« on: December 14, 2012, 08:06:41 am »

Hi All,

Synfig is not showing up in the xfce menu on VL7-64 and when I try to run it from the terminal I get:

a:$ /usr/bin/synfig -w 720 -h 480
synfig(3744) [09:16:15 AM] info: Loading modules from /etc/synfig_modules.cfg
/usr/bin/synfig: warning: Unable to find module "mod_magickpp" (file not found)
/usr/bin/synfig: warning: Unable to find module "mod_libavcodec" (file not found)
Nothing to do!

Both of these issues seem to have something to do with ffmpeg but I have ffmpeg installed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
