I need some help! But thats why I love linux, because I can always go here as a NOOB without feeling freaking stupid! Any way, I am running Suse Prof 9.2 and I am trying to install gtk+-1.2.0. so that I can run MPLAYER. GTK 1.2.0 requires glib1.2.0 or greater. I have downloaded the source for glib 1.2.0. from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk/v1.2/glib-1.2.0.tar.gz
and extracted it.
I thought that I had compiled it correctly. I did the ./configure, make and finally make install. No issues. I then go to run ./configure on the extracted file from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk/v1.2/gtk+-1.2.0.tar.gz
and I get the following error every time:
checking for glib-config... 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.
*** GLIB 1.2.0 or better is required. The latest version of GLIB
*** is always available from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/.
Anyway, I edited the /etc/ld.so.conf file and made sure that it had /usr/local/lib in the path. I then ran ldconfig as su within a shell, and just to be sure did sudo ldconfig. I cannot get anywhere! Please help!!
