Where do I get this?


Trying to install Scribus 1.0 on RedHat 9 (2.4.20-8).

Got scribus-1.0.tar.gz and scribus-i18n-en.tar.gz and untarred them. Went to the scribus-1.0 dir and did ./configure and got this warning:

checking for freetype-config... ./configure: line 1883: WARNING:: command not found
no
configure: WARNING: You need at least libfreetype 5.0

and then it stopped at this:

checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!

So I did this:

./configure --x-includes=/usr/X11R6/bin/X

Which stopped at this:

checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X libraries. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!

So I did this:

./configure --x-libraries=/usr/X11R6/bin/X

Which stopped at this:

checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!

When I do the --x-includes again, it goes back to the X libraries error.

So, can someone help me? I just want to use Scribus to replace PageMaker so I can be Windoze FREE!

TIA

Thanks DrOzz, but that has led me down the *yellow brick road* of dependencies!

Think I'll just stick with PageMaker in Windoze for now. I've used it for over 10 years, and I think it would take that long to run down all the *stuff* needed to get Scribus to working! It only takes 3 minutes to install PageMaker - complete with print drivers, fonts, and the works. Doesn't anyone write open source software with some step-by-step instructions, since it doesn't come with all the packages you need?

I will make the transition from Windoze to Linux, if it kills me! Which is what it looks like. I'll be dead before I find everything needed to install a simple program.

Simple. apt-get or http://freshmeat.net/projects/rpm-get/ rpm-get depending on your distribution will solve your dependancy problems without much fuss.
