Looking at my package manager it says I have xlibs 4.1.0-16 installed.
Sadly it does not list a xlibs 3.3, can you remember where you got it from?
Is it something I can "apt-get"?  Would installing xlibs 3.3 overwrite/clash
with my existing xlibs 4.1 or is there something I have to do first to
enable them to co-exist?  (Sorry if these questions seem a bit elementary
but I haven't got the hang of Debian yet and haven't a clue about libraries)

Thanks for your help,
