help wahcade fails to start ----Fixed!!

I am running ubuntu 7.04 and have sdlmame loaded and it is operating correctly. I loaded the .deb and I can run the setup and filter the games, but when I launch wahcade it fails to start. I have copied the items that show up on the terminal below. any help would be appreciated. I am a Linux nebbie but I am learning something new every minute it seems.

andy@andy-tester:~$ wahcade -w

Hmmm - you might have an empty filter file (.ftr) in ~/.wahcade/files.

Try clearing the contents and run wahcade again:
Code: Select all
rm ~/.wahcade/files/*

Wahcade should recreate the initial filter when it runs...
