I've just started using Xmonad so apologies if this is a very basic

I tried to use a different layout but I keep getting errors. Even when I
simply copied the example from Monad-Doc-Extending.html it didn't work.

My xmonad.hs file was as follows:

    import XMonad

    import XMonad.Layout.Tabbed
    import XMonad.Layout.Accordion
    import XMonad.Layout.NoBorders

    mylayoutHook = Full ||| noBorders (tabbed shrinkText defaultTConf) ||| Accordion

    main = xmonad $ defaultConfig { layoutHook = mylayoutHook }

The error message is:

xmonad.hs:7:58: Not in scope: `defaultTConf'

Can anyone kindly tell me what is wrong here?
