in reply to installing perl GD module

While I'm afraid I simply don't recall details such as the system on which you are trying to install GD::whatever (I stopped reading your CB sends once it became obvious you were not listening to the advice you were being given by bart, runrig, and others), I will nevertheless try to recap that advice, in the hopes that you are listening now.

  1. Install libgd. To install libgd, follow the instructions here.
  2. Install GD::whatever. Use Bundle::CPAN or whatever is appropriate for your system to actually install GD::whatever. As was pointed out in the CB and elsewhere, simply copying .pm modules to various and random "error locations" is insufficient to actually install modules that require compilation. Hint: GD::whatever requires compilation.
  3. If you are still having problems, please read the excellent and copious help found in our fabulous Tutorials section, specifically Installing Modules.
