Installing imwheel


I've been working on getting my Logitech MX500 to work properly in Linux. I've been going by a guide that told me to uninstall imwheel 0.9.5 in favor of 1.0.0pre11 I've downloaded imwheel 1.0.0pre11.tar.gz and extracted it into /root/tmp/imwheel-1.0.0pre11/. In the terminal, I cd into the directory, type ./configure and get the following:

linux:~/tmp/imwheel-1.0.0pre11 # ./configure

configure: error: IMWheel depends on the X11 libraries!
linux:~/tmp/imwheel-1.0.0pre11 #


So far, I can't get any further than this. I've browsed through YaST to see if I forgot to install anything that looks like an X11 library, but I'm not sure what to look for. In YaST, everything under >Package Groups>System>Libraries is installed. I don't know where to go from here. I would greatly appreciate some help.

You need the X developement libraries which in Debian is a pseudo package which provides a bunch of different libs those are what you should be searching for the package names in Debian below perhaps the file names are similar in SuSE.

Code:
>$ apt-cache depends xlibs-dev
xlibs-dev
  Depends: libice-dev
  Depends: libsm-dev
  Depends: libx11-dev
  Depends: libxext-dev
  Depends: libxi-dev
  Depends: libxmu-dev
  Depends: libxmuu-dev
  Depends: libxp-dev
  Depends: libxpm-dev
  Depends: libxrandr-dev
  Depends: libxt-dev
  Depends: libxtrap-dev
  Depends: libxtst-dev
  Depends: libxv-dev
  Depends: pm-dev
  Depends: x-dev
  Depends: xlibs-static-dev
BTW you should not be compiling as root you can use the ./configure and make as normal user then when you go to install use su -c 'make install' and type in the root password then the files will be installed.

In YaST I've installed every package in >Package Groups>Development and in >Package Groups>Libraries. I also looked at an alphabetical listing of packages and I've installed everything that looks similar to those at all. I also did a search and I've installed everything with either "lib" or "dev" in the name or summary. Do you know of any other place where I could search for these packages for SuSE?

Thanks. I'll keep that in mind.

Not really I have never used SuSE so I have no clue where to look. It seems like your looking in the right place with the developement in the package groups though. Is there nothing in there for X developement at all? I think you may want to start a new thread on installing the X developement libs I was going to suggest in the SuSE forum here but checked and apparently there is none.

OK I found it!!! Go into YaST and then the "Install and remove programs" module. Use the search option, type in "dev" and near the bottom there should be an "XFree86-devel" package. Install it. Then you can go on to the rest of the imwheel installation. Anything else I find I'll post here.

To make sure other ppl looking for help on this find this thread:
SuSE 9.1 imwheel x11 dev

hi,

thats helpful, but for Suse 9.1 Personal users:
go to: ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/9.1/suse/i586/
and download the following packages:
Freetype2-Devel
Fontconfig-devel
XFree86-devel
(in that order)

the personal edition seems to need a lot of extra downloads. I installed it yesterday without too much trouble, but to be able to compile i had to spend a day on the internet heh. it's not easy being a newbie!

hmm

I seem to not have the 'make' command available:

50-240:/home/lpamooij/Documents/az/imwheel-1.0.0pre12 # make
bash: make: command not found
50-240:/home/lpamooij/Documents/az/imwheel-1.0.0pre12 # ./make
bash: ./make: Onbekend bestand of map

50-240:/home/lpamooij/Documents/az/imwheel-1.0.0pre12 # find / -name make
find: /media/dvd: Geen medium gevonden
find: . changed during execution of find

I'm on suse 9.1 personal and i sort of need this to be able to install non-binary programs. I've been installing the required packs to configure for a few hours now.

can anyone help?

Lennard

thanks though,

Lennard
