Anjuta and automake


Hi, I have just installed Anjuta in Fedora 17. I want to tinker with some C programs.

When I click Run>execute, I get the error 'you must have automake installed'. So I installed it. It is in /usr/share/automake-1.7

But Anjuta can't find it. It keeps telling me the same thing 'you must have automake installed'.

How do I tell Anjuta where automake is?? I can't see anything in Edit>Preferences where I could input the path to automake.

I tried changing $PATH

[pedro@peterbedroom ~]$ echo $PATH
/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/home/pedro/.local/bin:/home/pedro/bin:/usr/share/automake-1.7
[pedro@peterbedroom ~]$

Doesn't help!

Maybe it's a permissions problem?? All the files in automake-1.7 seem to be root only. Should I make a group 'progamers' then add myself to the group?? Is that the right way to go??

How did you do that ?

# yum install automake
... will install automake-1.11.6.1.fc17.noarch, providing /usr/bin/automake
http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedo...dates/17/i386/


'automake17' is an old version.
Available for compatibility with old software only.

I installed it over Install software, which is Synaptic, I think. I did a search in synaptic for automake, and it showed me three packages, the highest number was automake-1.7

Well, I installed it as you said, and now that problem is solved.

Now Anjuta wants glib. I installed it, but it keeps complaining that I must install it.

Installed size: 357 k
Is this ok [y/N]: y
Downloading Packages:
glib-1.2.10-36.fc17.x86_64.rpm | 134 kB 00:00
Running Transaction Check
Running Transaction Test
Transaction Test Succeeded
Running Transaction
Installing : 1:glib-1.2.10-36.fc17.x86_64 1/1
Verifying : 1:glib-1.2.10-36.fc17.x86_64 1/1

Installed:
glib.x86_64 1:1.2.10-36.fc17

Complete!
[pedro@peterbedroom ~]$

I'll try a reboot!That didn't help!

How do I tell Anjuta where glib is???

Glib is always installed by default at OS install :
rpm -qa | grep glib
→ → glib2-2.32. ...
Or better : rpm -qa --last | grep glib ( Then the reply includes the install dates.)

.. So the required "-devel package" is 'glib2-devel'
http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedo.../17/Everything


And : glib-1.2.10 is a 10 year old version.
( But still used by a very few old programs.)

... Why not install anjuta from the Fedora 17 repo ?
Then you can save a lot of time 'not downloading' all those -devel packages.
http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedo...ux/updates/17/
>> <arch> >> anjuta-3.4.4-1.fc17.<arch>.rpm
