trouble installing gtk, on glib pkgconfig returned 2.4.2 but 2.2.3 was found


I am a newbie so I don't completely understand what is wrong. When I try to install gtk, and the libs it requires, on configuring the atk-1.6.0 lib I get:

checking for pkg-config... /usr/local/bin/pkg-config
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0...
*** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.4.2, but GLIB (2.2.3)
*** was found! If pkg-config was correct, then it is best
*** to remove the old version of GLib. You may also be able to fix the error
*** by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable, or by editing
*** /etc/ld.so.conf. Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is
*** required on your system.
*** If pkg-config was wrong, set the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH
*** to point to the correct configuration files
no
configure: error:


I am using mandrake 9. The updated glibs I installed are at /usr/local/lib (I think). /etc/ld.so.conf = $PKG_CONFIG_PATH = /usr/local/lib and that path is also in $PATH.

Please, I need help. How can I get the installer to use the proper version of glib?

Here is the contents of glib-2.0.pc:

[root /]# more /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/glib-2.0.pc
prefix=/usr/local
exec_prefix=${prefix}
libdir=${exec_prefix}/lib
includedir=${prefix}/include

glib_genmarshal=glib-genmarshal
gobject_query=gobject-query
glib_mkenums=glib-mkenums

Name: GLib
Description: C Utility Library
Version: 2.4.2
Libs: -L${libdir} -lglib-2.0
Cflags: -I${includedir}/glib-2.0 -I${libdir}/glib-2.0/include

"How can I get the installer to use the proper version of glib?"

I think that the installer is complaining that you have glib 2.2.3 installed and that does not match the "Version: 2.4.2" given in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/glib-2.0.pc. I suggest that you edit /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/glib-2.0.pc and change "Version: 2.4.2" to "Version: 2.2.3". If that doesn't work then change it back to "Version: 2.4.2".

Another possibility is that you may have mismatched versions of glib and glib-devel installed. Try:
rpm -qi glib2
rpm -qi glib2-devel
and see what you have.

Don't edit the glib-2.0.pc file. Point the linker at the correct libraries with these variables
Code:
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib"
If you close the shell it will forget so you'll need to reset those variables if you want to start work on the next thing you want to compile.
Another option is to install the new versions over the old by running
./configure --prefix=/usr
This is risky as some things which are linked against the old libraries may break so I would advise against it.

Thanks, problem solved! I however have another dead end with the error message

configure: error: Pango 1.2.0 and Xft backend is required for x11 target

BTW, how can I write permanent variables?

Well the Pango thing, basically you need to install some sort of XFree86-dev-lib.rpm thing and then build Pango again. When you ./configure Pango it should finish with
Code:
configuration:
        backends: FreeType X Xft
If it just says backends: X then don't go any further. You need to install some development libs off your Mandrake CD's.
"permanent variables"? To set a variable every time you open a terminal write the lines you want in the hidden file .bashrc in your home folder. If it doesn't exist, create it. Use a simple text editor like Gedit or Kedit. Or copy and paste these lines into a shell
Code:
cat >> ~/.bashrc << "EOF"
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib"
EOF
It's better that you learn to do it yourself with a text editor though.

Hi!

I met the same issues as uv1 and this topic helped a lot... I managed to install glib 2.4 which is now recognized when I start "./configure" in my gtk directory...

But the make generates this error. I think this still has a link with glib :

/home/cedric/Documents/gtk+-2.4.2/gdk/.libs/libgdk-x11-2.0.so: undefined reference to `g_unsetenv'

Can you help me please???

If my reminds are correct, my first version of gtk had been installed during the installation of my Linux in the /usr/ directory.

I installed the newer version (so 2.2.4 in your case, 2.4.2 in mine) in the /usr/local directory (which is the default directory when installing from sources), so there was a conflict between the older version in /usr/ and my new version in /usr/local.

So I simply reinstalled the new version in the /usr/ directory so that the older version was erplaced. To do so, simply write "./configure --prefix=/usr/" in order to install in the /usr/ directory instead of the default directory. The do "make" and "make install"...

Instead of installing from the sources, you can also find the rpm file for your distrib. This will automatically install the whole stuff in the convenient directories.

Note : When installing programs from sources, it's preferable to install them in the /usr/local directory (usually the default one for the installation). But for libraries like gtk, or any other libraries used by your different programs, which are sometimes automatically install with your Linux, prefer to choose the /usr/ directory, especially when there already is an older version installed.

Good work
