Multi Gnome Terminal (Can't install)


Hello.

While I'm not entirely new to Linux, I'm new enough to get lost pretty easy. I just migrated from Kubuntu to Zenwalk 6.2 to try to get my hands a little more dirty. Anyway, I've been trying to install the Multi Gnome Terminal but I just can't seem to find out how to do it. I've tried the source file with the tar.gz and the x86 tarball.

This is what I get when I try to install the source file:


root[multi-gnome-terminal-1.6.2]# ./configure
loading cache ./config.cache
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/ginstall -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for working aclocal-1.4... missing
checking for working autoconf... found
checking for working automake-1.4... missing
checking for working autoheader... found
checking for working makeinfo... missing
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
checking for intltool >= 0.12... 0.22 found
checking for perl... /usr/bin/perl
checking for gnome-config... no
checking for gnomeConf.sh file in /usr/local/lib... not found
configure: error: Could not find the gnomeConf.sh file that is generated by gnome-libs install
root[multi-gnome-terminal-1.6.2]#




And this is what I get when I try to install the X86 file:

root[mgt_install]# ./install.sh
./install.sh: line 4: gnome-config: command not found
mkdir: cannot create directory `/usr/local/share/mgt': No such file or directory

cp: target `/usr/local/share/gnome/help/multi-gnome-terminal' is not a directory
multi-gnome-terminal succesfully installed!
root[mgt_install]# multi-gnome-terminal
multi-gnome-terminal: error while loading shared libraries: libglade-gnome.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


It says it's installed, but when I try to run it it gives me this error message.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

The missing file gnomeConf.sh is provided by
the package ' libgnome-dev ', still available.
EDIT : Sorry, wrong package name for zenwalk.

"gnome-libs-1.4.x" : Last time seem in Slackware 8.1 ?
ftp://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/ftp.slac...ackware/gnome/
gnome-libs-1.4.1.7-i386-1.tgz provides /usr/lib/gnomeConf.sh

These eight year old gnome-1.4.x files indicate,
that you are trying to build a very old application.

Thanks knudfl,
I was able to install the libs no problem, but now this error shows up:

checking for gtk-config... no
checking for GTK - version >= 1.2.0... no
*** The gtk-config script installed by GTK could not be found
*** If GTK was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the GTK_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to gtk-config.
configure: error: GTK not installed


an clues for this?

The application I am trying to install is called MGT (Multi Gnome Terminal) There was a slackware based download but the link is no longer available... sigh.

Thanks for the help.

Well, you will need the old gtk+-1.2.10-i486-4.tgz,
and the dependency glib-1.2.10-i486-3.tgz

Packages from Slackware 9.1...13 should be usable,
if no zenwalk packages are available.

On Slackware, these two are usually installed at
OS install together with gtk2-2.xx.x / glib2-2.xx.x.

How do I get packages? I searched the ftp placed in the 9.1 but I could only find gtk-engines-2.2.0... Thanks for helping.

It is your zenwalk version, that would determine,
which packages to use. Please always tell OS version
by every question.
http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/...Ask_a_Question

If you are not sure of the Slackware used for your zenwalk,
an older one will be a safe choice.

gtk+-1.2.10-i386-3.tgz , glib-1.2.10-i386-2.tgz
