Topic: gallery not found (simpleviewer)

I installed 1.8 from digikam.  Got an error message on installation of simpleviewer archive (instalation failed).  All attempts to use simpleviewer result in "gallery not found" Locally or on server.  Uninstall & reinstall did not work.  gallery.xml is not being created.

Using MEPIS (Ubuntu Dapper pools), simpleviewer 1.8, digikam 0.9.0, kipi 0.1.2

Never used this before, have no other ideas.  Any suggestions?

Thanks,
