TrickyKid thanks for your help, Ive managed to get past that bit now,
When i ./configure the gaim files, it says i need gtk+-2.2.4,
so ive downloaded this and tried to install, but its saying in need Pango, atk and glib, so ive installed glib. this comes up with an error saying i need PK-Config, so i have now installed PK-config and Glib, now when i try and install pango i get this error below
configure: WARNING: X development libraries not found
checking for pkg-config... /usr/local/bin/pkg-config
checking for fontconfig >= 1.0.1... Package fontconfig was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `fontconfig.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'fontconfig' found
configure: WARNING: No fontconfig found, skipping tests for FreeType and Xft
configure: error: *** Didn't find any of FreeType, X11, or Win32.
*** Must have at least one backend to build Pango.
Im not sure what i have to do ? and when i try and ./confiure Atk i get this error (below)
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0...
*** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.2.3, but GLIB (2.2.1)
*** was found! If pkg-config was correct, then it is best
*** to remove the old version of GLib. You may also be able to fix the error
*** by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable, or by editing
*** /etc/ld.so.conf. Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is
*** required on your system.
*** If pkg-config was wrong, set the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH
*** to point to the correct configuration files
*** GLIB 2.0.0 or better is required. The latest version of
*** GLIB is always available from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/.
I have no idea what im doing, all i want to do is get Gaim working
any more help would be great
