Build problem - ./configure output saying package is not present when it is.


I'm trying to build xfce 4.8 from source on Scientific Linux 6.0. Following the instructions here - http://www.xfce.org/download/building - All is fine until I come to configure xfce4-panel when I get the following error. Note that I have successfully built and installed the supposedly missing package in several locations.


Code:
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config                                                                                                       
checking for pkg-config >= 0.9.0... 0.23                                                                                                             
checking for libxfce4util-1.0 >= 4.8.0... 4.8.1

[spoovy@kermitsl xfce4-panel-4.8.0]$ sudo find / -name libxfce4ui-1
/include/xfce4/libxfce4ui-1

Any help gratefully accepted.

It will be looking for a ".pc" file to say that the package is installed, if you're using pkgconfig... Try
Code:
sudo find / -iname *.pc | grep libxfce

Hi,

What was the PREFIX you used to build the initial components? If it was /usr/local (or you didn't used a --prefix) then you should use:
Code:
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH
Or change the path to pkgconfig accordingly.
You can also try to find libxfce4ui-1.pc and use that pathin PKG_CONFIG_PATH

Regards

Thanks guys. The .pc file(s) are present alright. I tried your edit to my PKG_CONFIG_PATH bathory and it worked (once i'd spotted your deliberate typo that is

Thanks again.

On reading further down the xfce instructions page I see this was covered. I must read the whole page before starting!!
