configure: error: Package requirements


checking for LIBWNCK... configure: error: Package requirements (gtk+-2.0 >= 2.16.0 glib-2.0 >= 2.16.0 gobject-2.0 >= 2.13.0 libstartup-notification-1.0 xres) were not met:

Requested 'gtk+-2.0 >= 2.16.0' but version of GTK+ is 2.14.7

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables LIBWNCK_CFLAGS
and LIBWNCK_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

bash-3.1#

I don't understand why I am getting this error when im trying to install libwnck I have all the required packages installed but keep getting this error message. anyone have any ideas on what Im doing wrong?

This error gtk+-2.0 >= 2.16.0' but version of GTK+ is 2.14.7 shows that you need the Gtk+ 2.16.0, you need to install that first.

aahh so I need to download gtk+2.16 and get that installed first?

off topic question
when I try to install libdesktop-agnostic by running the following command

Code:
./waf configure --prefix=/usr --config-backends=gconf --vfs-backends=gio --desktop-entry-backends=glib
I get the following

I have double checked and I have gconf installed I have gconfig-2.6*.txz installed and I have no clue why Im getting this error message it's not making sense.

i can see from the code above it is searching for gconf-2.0 not gconfig-2.0 , why don't you check this file: /root/libdesktop-agnostic/build/config.log for error logs.

You need to install updated versions of glib. gmodule, gobject and gconfig.

cool, thanks bro, Im going to work on that now, I would update the whole system to slackware-current, but when I do that, it messes up my whole system and when it boots up, it boots up about half then monitor flashes and then blacks out, no idea why, and I can't get back into it and have to reinstall all over, it's like there's a package in slackware-current that crashes my resolution or something, but glib, gmodule, and all that junk should be in the slackware/l of slackware-current correct?

It was my pleasure.
Yes, you should get the updated versions of these packages in current slackware, which is 13, I guess.
P.S. Never tried slackware, but I'm on my way to give it a try

I love it, IMO it's the most stable distro, you just run into the issues Im having, 13 is the latest stable release which doesn't have the updated versions I need, the ones I need I believe are in the slackware-current which have been updated since 13 was released.

Ref. your other thread
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...on-xdg-797210/
No need to start a new thread with the same subject.

So you do have Slackware 13. Please always describe OS in post # 1.
Then libwnck-2.22.3 is the choice. No need to change glib, etc.
http://ftp.acc.umu.se/pub/gnome/sources/libwnck/2.22/
# src2pkg libwnck-2.22.3.tar.bz2 >> libwnck-2.22.3-i486-1.tgz

gobject-introspection-0.6.9-i486-1.tgz : also created with src2pkg .

'bzr' >> bazaar-1.18-x86-1ng.txz, slacky.eu, can be used instead of the bzr package.
libgtop-2.28.0-i486-1mch.txz , slacky.eu.
vala : vala-0.7.8-2pclos2010.i586.rpm , libvala0-0.7.8-2pclos2010.i586.rpm
rpm2tgz <package.rpm> , to get :
vala-0.7.8-2pclos2010.i586.tgz , libvala0-0.7.8-2pclos2010.i586.tgz
( None of the Slackware vala packages worked.)

I got all those above packages installed either via packages already made or just from source, the issue is coming from libdesktop-agnostic when Im running the following command.

./waf configure --prefix=/usr --config-backends=gconf --vfs-backends=gio --desktop-entry-backends=glib

but I was a dummy and upgraded everything to slackware-current forgetting that it screws up my display causing me to reinstall so now I get to redo everything.

No need to start a new thread with the same subject.

So you do have Slackware 13. Please always describe OS in post # 1.
Then libwnck-2.22.3 is the choice. No need to change glib, etc.
http://ftp.acc.umu.se/pub/gnome/sources/libwnck/2.22/
# src2pkg libwnck-2.22.3.tar.bz2 >> libwnck-2.22.3-i486-1.tgz

gobject-introspection-0.6.9-i486-1.tgz : also created with src2pkg .

'bzr' >> bazaar-1.18-x86-1ng.txz, slacky.eu, can be used instead of the bzr package.
libgtop-2.28.0-i486-1mch.txz , slacky.eu.
vala : vala-0.7.8-2pclos2010.i586.rpm , libvala0-0.7.8-2pclos2010.i586.rpm
rpm2tgz <package.rpm> , to get :
vala-0.7.8-2pclos2010.i586.tgz , libvala0-0.7.8-2pclos2010.i586.tgz
( None of the Slackware vala packages worked.)

Ok I just followed your instructions from this post and after I did the src2pkg and rpm2tgz and went to install the new *tgz packages I get the following

Code:
bash-3.1# installpkg gobject-introspection-0.6.9-i486-1.tgz 
Verifying package gobject-introspection-0.6.9-i486-1.tgz.

gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
Installing package gobject-introspection-0.6.9-i486-1.tgz:
PACKAGE DESCRIPTION:
WARNING:  Package has not been created with 'makepkg'
Package gobject-introspection-0.6.9-i486-1.tgz installed.

bash-3.1#
is the WARNING: Package has not been created with 'makepkg' something to worry about or can it be ignored?

A warning is not an error, is usually information only.

Reason for for the warning : probably a minor change in the
pkgtool scripts, or in src2pkg, may be an insignificant bug.
I saw no warnings in Slackware 13.
