Unhappy problem with xmms and gtk...


Hi
I have just tried to install XMMS... I got message that I don't have the GTK+ newer than 1.2... I thought I did, but I downloaded the newest version of GTK, installed it, and XMMS gives me the same message again...
How to fix this problem?...

What is configure saying (actual errror), where did gtk get
installed to?


Cheers,
Tink

The error message:

checking for GTK - version >= 1.2.2... 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+ >= 1.2.2 not installed - please install first ***

I don't have a clue where did gtk installed itself... I run it from home/[user]/gtk_folder...

Heh.

OK, let's assume that you just moved from Lodz to Leeds and switched
from Slack 9.1 to OpenSUSE10.3 in the last 10 minutes .... :D

What does rpm -ql $(rpm -qa | grep gtk ) give you?
Chances are that you just need to install the matching
development package for GTK.

Use Yast2 to find & install gtk-dev


Cheers,
Tink

No, it didn't happen in the last 10 mins, I just didn't visit this site for last 4 years or so... and so many changes happen in my life since then.

The output after entering command you wrote gave me a very long output.

And any of it looked relevant to gtk and development?

If no - do the Yast thing. Search for gtk, locate dev and install it.

gtk+-1.2 appears to be installed, but there are no includes.

I'd really suggest looking for it in yast. Don't try installing
stuff from source if you're not using the package-maintainers
way of building stuff.


Cheers,
Tink

Ummm ... fire up yast2, locate the search function, search for gtk+

In the result set search for a package called gtk+-dev (or the like)
and install it. Sorry, I don't use SuSE or YaST at home, so can't
give much more guidance than that.



Cheers,
Tink

Just a side note. xmms is no longer being supported as far as I know. Nobody was willing to take it up from what I hear. The closest replacement I have found is "Audacious", which has decended from xmms. Apparently, xmms has over 300? bugs now . . . (Gentoo forum info).

Thank you very much for all your time and patience
