Angry Problems installing GLib 2.0.4


Hi! Me again!


I tried to install GTK+ 2.0.4, because I want to install jpilot 0.99.6

Well. So i tried to install the basics (atk 1.0.3, glib 2.0.4 and pango 1.0.5). I downloaded the three packages (.tar.gz) from ftp.gtk.org

I installed glib (./configure, make, make check, make install) and then tried to install atk the same way. But during configuring atk the following message appears
Code:
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0... no
*** Could not run GLIB test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GLIB is incorrectly installed.
configure: error:
*** GLIB 2.0.0 or better is required. The latest version of
*** GLIB is always available from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/.
hmm... but I just installed it??


Can anyone help me (if i knew how to paste the "newbie"-smilie....)?

Thanks

Hi

I actually went through this not that long ago, it can be a bit tricky, so just stick with it..

Anyway,
Try to point atk to the location that glib was installed to. If you don't know where it was installed to, check the results of configure's output in the same directory.

Also, you may/will have to change some variables such as pkg-config along the way. Check around the board on that, and expect a bit of reading as it's not always blatently obvious.

Good Luck!

Cool

Where would this be?

/usr/local/lib or
/usr/share/doc/packages/glib?

I can't decide what to do...
I installed from /home/user/glib-2.0.4...

I believe it will be:
/usr/include OR
/usr/local/include/glib-version

Cool

Well... and again I found a solution myself.

The original problem was:
I wanted to install jpilot. But jpilot needed gtk-config. I couldn't find either gtk-config or glib-config on my system.

I tried to solve it following way:
I installed gtk+-1.2.8 and glib-1.2.8, with no visible effects. So i tried to install gtk+-2.0.4 with essentials. Again: The same problem.

Solution: This morning I scrolled the internet in order to find "gtk-config script 1.2.8", and I found out that one needs the DEVEL-Package... Well, I downloaded gtk+-1.2.8-devel from gtk.org, installed it and was able to install jpilot (after installing intltool).

But thanks for your help again

I'm "looking forward" to my next problem and wonder what it'll be...
