gtk-devel?


I'm trying to install a program from http://www.nessus.org/nessus_2_0.html called Nessus 2.0 but I need to have the gtk-config program installed. On the site it says, "If your system comes with GTK, make sure that you have the gtk-config program installed. If you do not, install the gtk-devel package that should come on your distribution CDROM.". I looked on my distros cd roms and didn't find one called "gtk-devel". How do I install gtk-config?

first make sure gtkconfig isn't on your system...

execute as root:
'updatedb && locate gtk-config'

this will tell you if gtk-config is located on your machine.

I did exactly like you said but it didn't tell me anything.
Code:
[drew@localhost drew]$ su
Password:
[root@localhost drew]# updatedb && locate gtk-config
[root@localhost drew]#
So I tried to install that program again and this is how that went...
Code:
[drew@localhost security]$ sh nessus-installer.sh
The command 'gtk-config' was not found in your $PATH.
The nessus client will be built without its GUI...

Press ENTER to continue...

then I would go with your original idea of installing the gtk-devel packages... its really odd that you don't have gtk-config but hey...

you can find gtk-devel (and other rpms) on this site. just make sure that the version number of the gtk and gtk-devel rpms match up.

hope that helps,
