imlib2 dependency for PyPanel


Howdy,

I'm very new to linux, a friend recommended slackware for leaning the ins and outs, so i'm running a slackaware 13.0 server. I'm trying to get compile PyPanel-2.4 from source, but i'm recieving the following:

"root@waikru:/tmp/PyPanel-2.4# python setup.py install

PyPanel requires the Imlib2 library -
http://www.enlightenment.org/pages/imlib2.html
root@waikru:/tmp/PyPanel-2.4#"


I installed imlib2-1.4.2 from source and confirmed that /usr/local/lib/imlib2/ was created. However i'm still reciveing the same error from PyPanel. I also found a slackbuild for imlib2 and tried installing that.
Also i added /usr/local/lib/imlib2 to /etc/ld.so.conf and ran ldconfig, not sure if that would help, but it didn't.

No matter what i've tried i can't bypass that dependency error. Any pointers are greatly appreciated. Thanks much.

-J

Edit setup.py, and change the paths to imlib2-config and libImlib2.so.1 accordingly. Or you can create symlinks to these files in /usr/bin and /usr/lib (where setup.py expects to find them).

Regards

Thanky you much. Yeah the path for imlib2-config was pointing to the wrong file name. Fixed and installed. Thank you much.
