trying to ./configure GLib. returns error ***Working zlib and headers not found *** u


trying to ./configure GLib; returns error:*** Working zlib and headers not found*** Unable to find a zlib download. Please direct - gtw

many thanks knudfl!

ran sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev returned

E: Couldn't find package zliblg-dev

Please re-direct - gtw

ran item 1 again, the return is below:

Package zlib1-dev is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package zlib1-dev has no installation candidate

still trying to run Canon MP560
cannot see thanks tag

Got your prompt!
Cannot see where to continue the thread; so I used edit!
As you can see above I am no further forward
gtw

Welcome to LQ. .. ..

Installing a new 'glib' will trash parts of Gnome etc.

1) Missing zlib ( development files ) : sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev
( The main zlib ( run time files ) is already installed.)

2) I don't think you will need a new 'glib'.
It is installed by default. Install the missing glib parts:

sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-dev


Suggest : Make a list with the installed packages ..
dpkg --get-selections > selections.txt

..
