Tried to follow the instructions on the Wallpaper tray from the
wiki at:


But when I try to run:

./configure --prefix=/usr

as the instructions say to do I get the following error:

mjohanson at grimoire:~/Downloads/wp_tray-0.5.0$ ./configure
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes

checking for XML::Parser... configure: error: XML::Parser perl

So I thought maybe I was just missing perl (Never used it
personally as of yet but getting to it in class in the next 2
weeks or so). So I went to do a install on it and got the

perl is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

So what is missing to give the error above? Perl seems to be
there (typing perl --help comes back with the help). So I am a
bit lost on what is missing.

Any thoughts?
