1.14 built fine on Ubuntu 21.10. Per my old instructions on the web site 

build-essential itstool gawk libxml2-utils libglib2.0-dev libgtk2.0-dev (and I 
had to add) flex

./configure make and sudo make install ran without complaint.

I did find that the issue with checkinstall per the September 21, 2021 warning 
note no longer seems to be an issue. I installed checkinstall and created a 
.deb package without any bad effects. It will install on Mint 20.3 (based on 
Ubuntu 20.04) but gnome-commander will not run.

ken@vmMintMate:~/Desktop$ gnome-commander
gnome-commander: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.29' 
not found (required by gnome-commander)
gnome-commander: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.34' not 
found (required by gnome-commander)
gnome-commander: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.33' not 
found (required by gnome-commander)

I am in the process of migrating my systems to Mint so I guess I will have to 
wait until Ubuntu 22.04 LTS comes out in a couple of months and then Mint will 
build a new release built on that base (I think).

Until then if I want to use the desktop trashcan I guess I will just have to 
use the built in file manager :-(  Actually I rarely use the trash can. When I 
delete something with gnome-commander I want it DELETED.  A really neat trick 
would be an option to securely delete the file, perhaps with shred. However, 
with solid state drives I am not sure how effective that is.

Thanks again for all your great work.
