Question how to solve "Package bluez was not found" error?


Linux newbie here -- I'm running Debian armel on a Raspberry Pi, and attempting to get a PS3 DualShock controller set up following these instructions.

The problem comes when I attempt to make sixad. I get this output:

Code:
pi@raspberrypi ~/QtSixA-1.5.1/sixad $ make
mkdir -p bins
g++ -O2 -Wall -Wl,-Bsymbolic-functions sixad-bin.cpp bluetooth.cpp shared.cpp textfile.cpp -o bins/sixad-bin `pkg-config --cflags --libs bluez` -lpthread -fpermissive
Package bluez was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `bluez.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'bluez' found
In file included from sixad-bin.cpp:18:0:
bluetooth.h:21:33: fatal error: bluetooth/bluetooth.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
In file included from bluetooth.cpp:18:0:
bluetooth.h:21:33: fatal error: bluetooth/bluetooth.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make: *** [sixad_bins] Error 1
I tried doing a "sudo apt-get install bluez", but this told me "bluez is already the newest version" (and of course made no difference to the make problem).

So it seems that I have bluez, but for some reason make can't find it... but as a Linux noob, I'm stumped at this point. Any suggestions?

from the above link you didnt following instructions so it would seem:

Code:
sudo apt-get install bluez-utils bluez-compat bluez-hcidump checkinstall libusb-dev  libbluetooth-dev joystick
If you only attempted to install bluez, you are wrong, you need to just copy/paste the above line into your command line for the RPi.

Note bluez does not equal bluez-utilsd etc... Sadly Im not as familiar with apt-get as I am with yum. In yum you could just
Code:
yum -y install bluez*
and grab em all, not sure if you can do that with apt or not. Either way just copy/paste the above into your terminal window for the RPi and you should be good. If not copy/paste the entire output here in code flag for us.

Also you might want to post this in the official RPi forums:

http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3

but mind you about the RPI forums, they dont like it when you speak the truth about things that are broke, mishandled, etc..., and they will ban you for telling the truth even in a polite way.

Argh! I posted the wrong link -- the actual source I was following was the same content but at this site. On that page, there is a line break on the apt-get install command right after bluez-hcidump, and so I didn't get checkinstall through joystick... and somehow didn't even realize I'd missed them.

I thought this was some deep arcane Linux problem with my distro or some such, when it was really just a PEBKAC.

Ain't that the truth? I've been trying to point out how silly it is that their standard/recommended distro is broken (incompatible with both Java and Mono, which covers 2 of the top 5 languages), but it's like talking to a brick wall.

However, I can tell that you all in this forum are friendly and helpful, just as claimed on the home page. I hope one day I'll know enough Linux to pass that good karma along to the next newbie who comes along.
