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
