gtk-config and glib-config scripts not found?


i am running configure for one the the apps i am trying to build and i am getting these warnings:

checking whether GTK UI requested... yes
checking for gtk-config... (cached) no
checking for GTK - version >= 1.2.0... 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: warning: GTK+ not found. Reverting to Xlib UI

and

checking for glib-config... (cached) no
checking for GLIB - version >= 1.2.0... no
*** The glib-config script installed by GLIB could not be found
*** If GLIB was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the GLIB_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to glib-config.
configure: warning: glib not found - using internal replacement

now i have all the libglib/libgtk and the dev versions installed what does it think i dont have? what about those env variables? how exactly do i create those?

Well if they aren't in your path and not in the default locations either then you could try setting the environment variables as follows:

export GTK_CONFIG=/otherlocation/gtk-config
export GLIB_CONFIG=/otherlocation/glib-config

You could try the command 'locate gtk-config' to find out where they are installed.

i use debian and i can only find packages for redhat for those two names. *sigh* all i want to do is a simple configure why does it make it so difficult for me sometimes?

I have the same problem over here, using SuSE 7.3. GTK's obviously required for just about everything under the sun I could even think of trying to install, and ./configure fails for everything. I've installed every package I could find on the GTK website, including glib 2.0.4, gtk 2.0.5, atk 1.0.1, pango 1.0.3, and ALL the associated -devel packages for those.

Still, gtk-config does not exist on my machine (did an updatedb and locate found nothing), closest I get is one /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/include/gdkconfig.h. Argh!

What am I missing? Any suggestions? Thanks!

you need gtk1.2 not 2.0. 2.0 uses a different configuration system.

So I should NOT be using the newest version? Alright, I wonder why.

Should I uninstall all the gtk2 stuff? The gtk 1.2 and glib 1.2.8 packages say they conflict with the newer stuff.

both versiona of gtk run fine side by side. gtk2 is new, and developed inline with gnome2. most gtk based apps are only compatible with the previous version of gtk, whose API has been stable for about 4 years, as opposed to 4 months...

thanks for that. i went to gtk.org and downloaded the source of gtk1.2 and glib1.2 and its now working fine (had to do a bit of tweaking though as i had two versions of gtk and glib-config) i just deleted the older version.

So how do I get these different versions of things to coexist?

Trying to install gtk+ 1.2.8 fails for dependencies, saying gkrellm and libglade need gtk+. Trying to install gtk+-devel fails for need of glib-devel, and installing glib-devel conflicts with glib2-devel, so no one's happy. Thanks for your enormous help!

Thanks soooo much....yes, once again the simplest answers are often the best - it's nice when things finally work after weeks of frustration! (glib and gtk installed fine, gtk-gnutella did too and qt & scribus are on their way)

"once again the simplest answers are often the best"

Or even more simply: tell ./configure to use gtk2 instead of gtk1.something. I did
this by changing

_PLATFORM_DEFAULT_TOOLKIT=gtk

to

_PLATFORM_DEFAULT_TOOLKIT=gtk2

in ./configure.

Good luck,

Daniel
