I installed bioperl because I'm interested on using bio::graphics.

The first time I try to install bioperl it says I have problems 
installing bio::graphics because I probably don't have GD or 
Text::Shellwords. It was not specific.

Later I try installing GD:

And then Text-Shellwords-1.06

Then I tried again installing bioperl 1.4 using perl Make.PL make make 
install etc

It said bio:graphics installed ok!

But I still having problems...When I try the first example 
(****render_blast1.pl on 
http://bioperl.org/HOWTOs/html/Graphics-HOWTO.html**) with "perl -d" on 
a blast report
I get this error:

/[malatorr at myserver]$ cat blastX_report.txt | ./test.pl
Loading DB routines from perl5db.pl version 1.19
Editor support available.
Enter h or `h h' for help, or `man perldebug' for more help.
main::(./test.pl:8):      my $panel = Bio::Graphics::Panel->new(-length 
=> 1000,-width  => 800);

/What could be wrong?

Thank you.
