I'm trying to ./configure Pidgin 1.4.1. When I run the configure, I get:
checking for GTK... no
You must have the GTK+ 2.0 development headers installed to compile Pidgin.
If you want to build only Finch then specify --disable-gtkui when running configure.
When I run <apt-get install gtk+ gtk+-devel gtk+-static> I get:
$ apt-get install gtk+-static gtk+-devel gtk+
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
gtk+-static is already the newest version.
gtk+-devel is already the newest version.
gtk+ is already the newest version.
When I check Kynaptic, it shows my GTK+ version as being 2.12.8-1ark. If I remember correctly, I fixed this before by manually compiling the latest version of GTK+ from source, but I should not have to do so. I should only have to use what's already provided by my distro's (ArkLinux's) repos.
Any help would be much appreciated.
