Help with installation of gnome-cups-manager


I am running Fedora9. I am trying to install gnome-cups-manager from a tar.bz2 file format. After I did './configure' I got the following error:
Code:
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for GNOME... configure: error: Package requirements (
libgnomeui-2.0 >= 2.14.0
libgnome-2.0 >= 2.14.0
libglade-2.0 >= 2.0.0
libbonobo-2.0 >= 2.0.0
libgnomecups-1.0 >= 0.2.0
gnome-keyring-1
) were not met:

No package 'libgnomecups-1.0' found
I want to know whether I can use yum to install libgnomecups. If yes what is the right command to use with yum so that the package gets installed in the correct directory.

I don't know the answer to your question but I have an idea. You can administer CUPS from your web browser. Just point your web browser to localhost:631. When you want to change something it will ask you to log on. I use the root account to log on or you can create an lpadmin account and set the password for it to something that you know.

Otherwise I would guess that you can use yum to install all of the listed dependencies.

The address http://localhost:631/
suggested by stress_junkie will take you
to a very reliable printer setup tool.

The gnome-cups-manager requires some
"packages-devel" to compile, I would not
recommend doing it. And some files may
not be available for Fedora 9.

Regards

Thanks. localhost:631 does the trick!
