What error? Without knowing that I have no idea what the
problem might be. By the way, Ubuntu has an ready-to-install
package for XForms (libforms-dev is probably what you need)
although a rather ancient one when you still use 8.04...

Well, XForms is a library, so you write programs using that
library. What you exactly need to do depend so much on what
you want to achieve that the question can't be answered any
better I fear. I would recommend that you take a look at the
documentation to find out how programs using the library are
to be written. Here's the probably most simple one which
generates a window with just a single button, labeled "OK":

#include <forms.h>
int main( int argc, char *argv[] )
    FL_FORM *form;
    fl_initialize( &argc, argv, 0, 0, 0 );
    form = fl_bgn_form( FL_UP_BOX, 230, 160 );
    fl_add_button( FL_NORMAL_BUTTON, 40, 50, 150, 60, "OK" );
    fl_show_form( form, FL_PLACE_MOUSE, FL_NOBORDER, "Hello, world!" );
    return 0;

Once you click on that button the window gets closed and
the program ends. Perhaps you can use that to start expe-
rimenting with other features of the library.
