can't find X


so anytime i try to configure some tar package (the most recent are some kde themes), i get this message after a long list of info...

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

i tried doing some ./configure --prefix /blah/blah/blah but i really don't know what path i'm looking for.

please help. thanks.

You are trying to install from source without all your development packages. You need to install the Free86-devel package. Use your package manager, or Software manager to do that, then your source based programs should install (I would advise actually installing all devel packages).
