Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hey, im trying to compile the xmms-speakers plugin package, and i'm getting this error when i do ./configure:
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: error: Cannot find GTK: Is gtk-config in path?
I believe i do have GTk installed.
It says something about a gtk-config in path? I'm not exactly sure what that means.
Can someone help me figure this out?
Your PATH is a listing of directories that bash will search, in sequence, for files. If the directory which contains gtk-conf isn't in your path, your attempt will fail.
How to fix this?
One way is via command line: something like PATH=$PATH:</path/to/gtk-conf>; export PATH.
The easiest way: edit /etc/ld.so.conf, add the path to gtk.conf. Then, from command line, issue the command 'source /etc/ld.so.conf' (without quotes) to reload the PATH environment. You may have to su to root for the source and install commands to work, as well as to edit the /etc file.
gtk-config is a script that comes with the older gtk libs ( the one you want is gtk-1.2.10). don't confuse this with gtk-2.x, they are two different versions of the same library but not compatible ( but they can both coexist on the same system without conflicts). open up Yast, and search for gtk, look for a package called gtk-1.2.x-devel ( or something similar), it will contain the gtk-config script you need.
Originally posted by minm alright, i search for it, everything that has the word gtk is installed (including gtk2, and gtk2-devel) however, i don't even see a gtk-1.2.x-devel anywhere
remember, gtk-2 is completely different and it doesn't matter whether you have it installed or not. unfortunately, I cannot help you as i don't use suse, maybe head over to the novell/suse forums and see if anyone there knows the exact name of the package. surely if you find a suse 9.2 repository on the net, it will have gtk-1.2 ( and -devel) packages since these are standard libraries that more or less every distro contains.
