Question GTK puzzle


OK, I've run into a new problem.

I'm trying to install gtk-gnutella for file sharing. Grabbed a tar.gz file from the gnutella site, unpacked it, ran ./configure. The process seemed to go smoothly until I got the following error:

GTK - version >= 1.2.0 found... no
***the gtk-config script installed by GTK could not be found
***if GTK was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in your path, or set the
*** GTK_CONFIG environment variable to the full path to gtk-config
Configure: error: cannot find GTK: Is gtk-config in path?

OK, so here's the thing -- I have GTK 2.2 installed and it has worked marvelously in various other capacities, so I'm not too comfortable messing with it in any way. BUT there doesn't seem to be a gtk-config file anywhere on my system.

Does that strike anybody as a little bit odd?

What can be done? I really want to be able to share files on gnutella.

Thanks in advance.

Chuck

Sorry for the gratuitous bump, but I'd really like to get gtk-gnutella running. Anybody?

Any other file sharing programs out there that work? I installed edonkey, but it doesn't work very well.

There are two GTKs - GTK and GTK2. I don't know if Redhat puts GTK packages in Fedora...either way, you'd have to install both.

I seem to have three GTK packages installed -- GTK, GTK2, and GTK+. Any ideas on why gtk-gnutella is not finding the one it needs?

I could take the easy way out of this and tell you to hack the configure script...but I won't.
Check the gtk-gnutella website and see if they have any RPMs. If they don't, email them and ask if they know of one. That'd be the easiest way.

Otherwise, you could check out the script and find out why it isn't finding GTK. But, that's not recommended.

Having GTK installed and compiling a GTK program are not the same. Most applications include header files and extra components to allow you to compile new apps. They are typically held in devel packages. See if you have the gtk+-devel-1.2.10-29.1.1.i386.rpm or gtk2-devel-2.4.0-1.i386.rpm. To check run rpm -q gtk2-devel. You get the idea.

OK, now I most definitely know that I have gtk+, gtk2, gtk2-devel, pango, pango-devel, atk, atk-devel all installed -- and I continue to get the same error message upon compiling gtk-gnutella. What's up with this? It's driving me nuts.

Oops

My guess is a bug in the configure script.

the one it is after is gtk+-devel, which you have not listed there.

having said that though, there are both gtk and gtk2 versions available.... gtk-gnutella.sf.net, best to get the gtk2 version now anyway.
