Error "glib-compile-schemas" dep. when installing System Monitor Indicator


Hi.
I want to install System Monitor Indicator, a program that shows me the processor load, memory load, etc. in a tray icon. Pretty useful.
(Any other tray icon program that can do the same, please tell me. I just know this one).

After ./configure I'm getting the error:
Quote:
glib-compile-schemas not found

Well, I have installed all libglib and libglib-dev that appeared in my Synaptics package search, but I still get this error.
After some search I found some guys saying something about libglib2.0-bin, but I can't find any libglib package in Debian repository ended with BIN in the name.

How can I solve this problem? How can i install this package glib-compile-schemas?
I'm using Debian Stable 2.6.32-5-686, standard repository US main contrib non-free.

Starting with glib version 2.26 :
The file /usr/bin/glib-compile-schemas is created when you build glib2.

Your 'Debian 6 Squeeze' has glib version 2.24 .

The package "libglib2.0-bin" with /usr/bin/glib-compile-schemas
is available for : Debian 7 Wheezy only.
http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/libglib2.0-bin

.

Manual installation doesn't work. I have tried it before:

# dpkg -i libglib2.0-bin_2.30.2-6_i386.deb
Selecting previously deselected package libglib2.0-bin.
dpkg: considering removing libglib2.0-0 in favour of libglib2.0-bin ...

The only way to upgrade / change your version of glib2
is to upgrade the OS to Debian Wheezy. AFAIK.

Usually 500..600 packages depend on libglib2.0-0 (-2.24).
I.e. all Gnome and all other gtk2 applications / libraries.

but if it's just to run one app, can't you compile newest glib and put it in /usr/local?
I would like to run Evince with bookmarks without deleting my Kanotix/Squeeze install..

Post # 5, @coyotl.

Not directly /usr/local/ , but a hideaway like e.g. /usr/local/glib226/ :
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/glib226

I.e. install all the new glib, atk, cairo, pango, gtk to /usr/local/glib226/

.
