possible fix error imlib-config not found
distro mandriva but may work for others?

in installing IceWM and searching suggests other wms...I got configure: error: imlib-config can not be found

I found I needed to install
imlib-cfgeditor which gives file /usr/bin/imlib_config

thats understem not hyphen

so I did a link with su powers

ln -s /usr/bin/imlib_config /usr/bin/imlib-config

You may need to change where distro puts the file but after I re-ran configure without any need of a pathway.....I had success

hope that helps

man imlib-config:

imlib-config - Display Imlib and GDK-Imlib Library Configuration

imlib-config OPTION [ OPTION ... ]

imlib-config is a script that is used to display what compiler flags and libraries were used when
Imlib and GDK-Imlib were built.

Note that imlib-config is not the same as the imlib_config program.
man imlib_config:


imlib_config is a program that is used to customize the Imlib library run-time configuration. Cus-
tomizable aspects of Imlib include the color palette, rendering characterstics, and color correction.

Note that imlib_config is not the same as the imlib-config script.
Note the different description and the last line of both notes.
