GTK+ and rpm install and compile issues Mandrake 10.0


I've been trying to compile some source-only programs I dled from sourceforge, and some required a newer version of GTK or when I tried to compile them claimed I didn't have GTK installed or something of the sort. An example of the errors I'm getting:

gtkpod install errors: (when running ./configure)

checking for gtk+-2.0 >= 2.4.0 gthread-2.0 >= 0.14.0 glib-2.0 > 2.0.0... Package gtk+-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk+-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gtk+-2.0' found
configure: error: ***
See `config.log' for more details.

I've tried copying gtk+-2.0.pc into the correct path, which is /usr/local/lib (I think). I used someone else's recommendation to export using a command like this: "export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PKG_CONFIG_PATH", but I lost the post. Anyway, when I copied gtk+-2.0.pc, it said some gdk package - gdk-x11 followed by something, wasn't found.

I think it might be related to errors when make/make install ing GTK. I got these errors at the end of my make and make install for gtk 2.4.4:

Since I was having so much trouble compiling my own source, I tried resorting to RPMs and used RPMDrake, but it consistently gives me errors even after I used the easy URPMI from urpmi dot org instructions (I don't have enough posts to post urls). Sometimes it will work flawlessly when installing few, simple programs, but when I tried installing, for example, font packages, it gives the error: "...retrieving failed. curl failed: exited with 56 or signal 0". Also, it always tells me the signatures are invalid or missing.

Another somewhat related issue is that when I download RPMs and run them, KDE does not recognize them as programs (when I use kappfinder). I don't know where they're installing, so I can't add them to my "start menu". This is probably a pretty simple problem, but are there any ideas on better ways to get KDE or something to recognize my programs?


I'm running Mandrake 10.0 on a dualboot with XP and using KDE.

Any help appreciated.
Thanks,
Adam

"I've been trying to compile some source-only programs I dled from sourceforge, and some required a newer version of GTK or when I tried to compile them claimed I didn't have GTK installed or something of the sort"

gtk may not be installed. It may only be partially installed because your compile of gtk failed. It may be installed in a place different than where gcc is looking for it. The wrong location problem can occur when you install an rpm built for a distribution other than Mandrake 10.

"Another somewhat related issue is that when I download RPMs and run them, KDE does not recognize them as programs (when I use kappfinder). I don't know where they're installing, so I can't add them to my "start menu".

You can find out where rpm installed programs or any other file with:

rpm -ql packagename

so try:

rpm -ql gtk | less

and then check to see if the files are where rpm says they are. If they are not then do:
rpm --nodeps -e gtk
and keep repeating until rpm says gtk is not installed. Then find a gtk rpm that is for sure a Mandrake 10 rpm and try installing the rpm again.

From my experience with Mandrake, it's impossible to compile something. Best route is to go urpmi and grab some old version since urpmi is outdated most of the time.

Its trying to find devel files to compile the program. In the software installer or urpmi search for gtk. Select the devel packages for gtk.

Go to http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/ to get urpmi or other packages updated.

Just keep installing gtk packages until the compiling stops erroring. Read what packages are getting installed and which ones are getting removed.

I disagree. I compiled many programs.

I never use RPM files from other people because their configuration for the RPM is not the same as mine.
