Ok, it seems like you tried to compile it and it failed, then you tried to install it. Since it never compiled and created the linuxdcpp executable, there's nothing to install. What version of Scons are you using (run scons -v)? The env.Clone() method was apparently added in 0.96.93, so yours needs to be later than that. As a workaround to get it to compile until you upgrade your SCons, you can edit the file "linux/SConstruct" to change this line:

env_gui = env.Clone()


env_gui = env

Hope this helps.

Thank you, it worked now.

btw - SCons (both engine and script) is ver.0.96.91.D001 (installed as )
