[Solved] No ROMs listed in WahCade

This is probably something simple that I am missing but I cannot get any ROMs to appear in the Wahcade application window. I am using Kubuntu 8.10 and sdlmame from the repositories. I installed Wahcade from the .deb package. I am launching from a console so I can watch for errors and had several problems that I had to work through e.g. controls.ini, gstreamer etc. but now I have Wahcade launching with no errors reported. I have pointed Wahcade to my roms in the setup application and the roms work if I type sdlmame ROMNAME at a console. When I launch Wahcade, the application starts and pauses with a message that says "Please wait Creating Initial Filter...." then the Wahcade window goes full screen and looks like I think it's supposed to but there are no games listed, the screen is blank other than the graphic elements in the png file. I can hit 1 or 2 and get menus to appear so I know the program is not hung. Any assistance getting this working will be appreciated.

Thank you,

Please disregard, I'm a moron. Why is it that path errors become more obvious after one asks for help??

Sorry for the false alarm....

I believe that it has something to do with someone called Murphy.

You what would be even better is to post what you did to fix your issue. I am having the same issue possibly. setup wont generate a list of my ROMS.
