I'm running a dual boot Dell Inspiron E1705. Its winXP vs. simplyMEPIS, which is Ubuntu based. I just started using linux around thanksgiving, and this particualar problem has been giving me trouble since the begining, and Im getting a little frustrated. I want to install an IDE so I can develop java programs. If I could do that, I would have little use for Windows anymore.
Anyway, whenever I run the configure script for KDevelop, I get the following error:
checking for libXext... no
configure: error: We need a working libXext to proceed. Since configure
can't find it itself, we stop here assuming that make wouldn't find
I decided it was a dependancy problem, so I went around the internet and got "libXext" and downloaded it. When I ran the configure script, I got this error:
checking for XEXT... configure: error: Package requirements (xproto x11 xextproto xau) were not met:
No package 'xproto' found
No package 'x11' found
No package 'xau' found
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Alternatively, you may set the environment variables XEXT_CFLAGS
and XEXT_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
So where do I go from there?
I know that's not descriptive enough, but could you please tell me what you need to know to diagnose and fix the problem? Thanks for all your help.
